MLS Week 26 Preview, Picks and Predictions

The California Clasico between rivals San Jose Earthquakes and Los Angeles Galaxy, will end our positive 26th week of the season in MLS Predictions

The Galaxy are my favorites to win today, and more than 2 goals expected in this match.

Current Week 26 record 1311 (accuracy 54.17 % )

Last Week 25 record 159 (accuracy 62.50 % )

2014 MLS Predictions record 240290 (accuracy 45.28 % )

*Keep in mind I’m only around 45 % in my accuracy this season, but I have been there before. I’m not blaming my self for my predictions, but the players, and sometimes referees, most of the time is their fault.:)

However, despite poor start of the campaign, I’m confident trough the season, I should be able to get back to over 50%, but obvious goal is to cross 54% as earlier as possible.

Picks and predictions are usually published here at least 1-2 hours before the game time.

MONTREAL IMPACT vs. LA GALAXY 2-2

The six goals by the Galaxy in their rout of Colorado last Friday matched the club’s third-highest total ever in a game – the most they’ve scored since the 1998 season, when they had games of six, seven and eight goals. The six goals are the most by one team in an MLS game since 2012, when Seattle defeated Chivas USA 6-2.

Landon Donovan added another chapter to his rewriting of MLS history, scoring two goals to move his career league total to 142. He was also credited with the game-winning goal, the 41st for his MLS career, also the most ever.
The Impact saw their road winless streak extended to 16 games in their 3-2 defeat at the Houston Dynamo on Saturday. The Impact are still without a victory away from home, trying to avoid becoming the sixth team to finish a season without a road win.

NEW YORK RED BULLS vs. D.C. UNITED 1-0

The teams are meeting for the third time this season, and United have won the first two. Luis Silva and Eddie Johnson scored second-half goals in a 2-0 D.C. victory on Aug. 31 at RFK Stadium; Davy Arnaud’s goal after just four minutes proved the difference in a 1-0 United win April 12.

Whitecaps FC were shut out for a fourth consecutive game in their scoreless draw against D.C. United on Saturday evening at BC Place. They have gone 411 minutes since scoring last, the third-longest drought in MLS this season and the longest streak in the club’s four-year MLS history.

The teams are meeting for the second time this season. Pedro Morales scored twice as Whitecaps FC took an early 3-0 lead; Chris Wondolowski netted twice for the Quakes, but Vancouver still took the 3-2 victory May 3 at BC Place.
