LA Galaxy II Last Match Summary (v Vancouver Whitecaps 2):

Los Dos come in to the match against San Antonio FC off of a home win as they managed a 2-0 win over Vancouver Whitecaps 2. They were given a big boost to open the scoring as Vancouver Sem De Wit’s header back to the keeper inadvertently nutmegged Spencer Richey in the Vancouver goal.

The other goal of the match came in the 67th minute through Ethan Zubak who was able to get on the end of a cross from Bradford Jamieson IV. In between the two goals Vancouver was the much stronger side as they controlled proceedings but couldn’t find a goal.

It was not the most polished performance from Los Dos but it got the job done, but the problems there will leave San Antonio FC happy that they can play Los Dos in an early season match before they really hit their stride.

Statistical Note: A win for San Antonio FC would be their first ever win in a home opener and their first against LA Galaxy II.

Key to the match

Both sides were able to carry early goals to their wins last week and as such an early goal will be significant, potentially acting as the match winner. LA Galaxy II scored especially early in their win and despite being out played for much of the match they won largely thanks to that score board pressure, so San Antonio FC will have to make sure to score first as LA Galaxy II will shut down well and make it very difficult to score.

Prediction: San Antonio FC 1 LA Galaxy II 1
