In this post tips and previews of the most interesting MLS matches scheduled on Thursday 25 June.
PHILADELPHIA UNION - SEATTLE SOUNDERS
Still out Dempsey after the scene with the referee in a US Open Cup which added to the injury occurred to Oba Martins, reduces a lot the offensive potential for the Sounders.
In our opinion UNDER 1.5 AWAY TEAM is the best choice.
PHILADELPHIA UNION: Sylvestre, Gaddis, Edu, Marquez, Williams, Nogueira, Carroll, Pfeffer, Maidana, Wenger, Sapong.
SEATTLE SOUNDERS: Frei, Mears, Scott, Marshall, Remick, Azira, Roldan, Thomas, Rose, Pappa, Neagle.
PHILADELPHIA DOUBLE CHANCE (1.33, Betfair)
UNDER 1.5 AWAY TEAM (1.36, Betfair)
COLUMBUS CREW - NEW ENGLAND REVOLUTION
Gonzalo Higuain has an elder brother: Federico, who plays for Columbus Crew and has a good goals average and arranges a good forwarders duo with Kei Kamara, the topscorer of this MLS
Columbus Crew score a lot but the defense concedes goals too easily: they scored and conceded at least a goal in 5 of the last 6 matches played.
BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE seems to be a good option here.
COLUMBUS CREW: Clark, Jimenez, Parkhurst, Pogatetz, Francis, Saeid, Tchani, Finlay, Higuain, Meram, Kamara.
NEW ENGLAND REVOLUTION: Shuttleworth, Woodberry, Farrell, Goncalves, Tierney, Dorman, Caldwell, Barnbury, Nguyen, Agudelo, Davies.
BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE (1.68, 10Bet)
ORLANDO CITY - COLORADO RAPIDS
Not a great period for Colorado Rapids, last team in the Western Conference tables, with 15 points in 15 matches played. They have won only 2 of the last 10 matches played.
Orlando City have a great occasion to forget the defeat occurred in the last match vs Montreal Impact: Kaka, who has already scored 7 goals, will be probably decisive again.
ORLANDO CITY: Hall, Ramos, Hines, St. Ledger, Boden, Higuita, Ceren, Neal, Kakà, Shea, Larin.
COLORADO RAPIDS: Clinton, Riley, Burling, Watts, Moor, Sarvas, Cronin, Serna, Powers, Torres, Solignac.
ORLANDO TO WIN (1.95, Sporting Bet)
OVER 2.5 (1.90, Sporting Bet)
L.A. GALAXY - PORTLAND TIMBERS
Last 2 Galaxy matches have been rich of emotions: a 6-1 win vs PSA Elite in the US Open Cup, followed by a 5-1 defeat vs Philadelpia Union in MLS.
Steven Gerrard wll join the club on July and till that moment the most representative player is Robbie Keane.
Also here lots of goals are expected and the previous clash between these teams confirms that (2-2 draw).
L.A. GALAXY: Penedo, Gargan, Gonzalez, DeLaGarza, Rogers, Ishizaki, Vayrynen, Juninho, Husidic, Zardes, Keane.
PORTLAND TIMBERS: Kwarasey, Powell, Paparatto, Ridgewell, Villafaña, Johnson, Chara, Nagbe, Fernandez, Wallace, Urruti.
BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE (1.72, PaddyPower)
OVER 2.5 (1.90, PaddyPower)
