Match Preview and Prediction
LA Galaxy begins the 2022 MLS season at home by visiting New York City FC. The Galaxy would be hoping to break the nine-year wait for silverware. LA Galaxy last won the MLS Cup in 2014 and are five-time MLS Cup Champions.
LA Galaxy had mixed results during the Preseason, recording three wins against New England Revolution, Toronto FC and New York Red Bulls. The club had two draws and a shock defeat against Vancouver Whitecaps.
The introduction of Douglas Costa on loan from Juventus is expected to bolster the attack options for the Los Angeles Galaxy this season.
New York City FC is well-motivated after recording an overwhelming victory over Santos De Guapiles in the CONCACAF Champions League Round of 16. The New York-based club progressed by a 6-0 aggregate scoreline.
Inspired by teamwork rather than individual abilities, NYCF had much better of their opponents over the two legs. Argentine forward Valentín Castellanos took off from where he stopped last season, scoring twice over the two legs.
Score Prediction: 2-1
Douglas Costa is the latest big player on the LA Galaxy roster for the 2022 season. No significant injury concerns for the five-time MLS Cup champions.
New York City FC
NYCF will miss Tinnerholm due to Achilles Tendon Injury. The rest of the squad included Valentín Castellanos, Morales, and Magno.
