- Over 2.5 goals have been scored in each of the previous five meetings between these two clubs.

The MLS is Back Tournament is a one-off competition that marks the return of the MLS following the recent pandemic and will feature 25 of the 26 Eastern and Western Conference sides, with FC Dallas choosing to withdraw from the behind closed doors competition. The competition will take place from July 8th to August 11th with the teams split into six groups, A-F, and 16 of the clubs will then progress through to a knockout stage.
Our prediction for over 2.5 goals to be scored is based on the head to head record between these two clubs and their results prior to this tournament. These two clubs have locked horns five times before and on each occasion, over 2.5 goals have been scored. Over 2.5 goals have also been produced in four of LAFC’s and four of Houston’s last six matches in all competitions, so you can see why we are expecting goals on Tuesday.
As for a final scoreline, we’re predicting a 3-1 win for LAFC who have won each o0f their last two meetings with Houston Dynamo by that very same scoreline. LAFC have scored three or more goals in each of their last four games against Houston and have scored exactly three goals in three of their last five matches heading into this tournament. Houston Dynamo have conceded nine goals in their last three games and face an LAFC side that have won three of their last five outings.
