LAG vs SS Dream11 : LA Galaxy and Seattle Sounders fight it out for second place in the Western Conference today when the two sides clash heads against each other.
Sunday brings our way a stupendous clash in Major League Soccer with LA Galaxy and Seattle Sounders squaring off against each other in a fixture which could end up shaping how the top 4 of the Western Conference looks like. Currently placed in second place, LA Galaxy know their two point lead over Seattle Sounders is an extremely slender one, one they could end up conceding with a defeat today.
Currently in fifth place with 39 points, for Seattle Sounders the importance of a win today is not only due to the fact that they’ll jump over their opponents with the three points but also consolidate their place in the top 7 with it. The ramifications from this encounter for both the sides increase in magnitude owing to the fact that both are on a horrendous run of results at the moment.
Where LA Galaxy only recently managed to quell a spree of three successive defeats with a 2-0 win over Dallas, Seattle Sounders were dismissed to their third defeat in five matches after Real Salt Lake City ended up trouncing them 3-0. It sees them only three points ahead of Dallas at the moment, an impasse the side will be looking to break free off today when they take on LA Galaxy.

LAG vs SS Dream 11 Picks
Goal-Keeper for LAG vs SS Dream11
With a cleansheet unlikely, our only consideration when picking out a shot stopper was to choose the more well-versed goal-keeper when it comes to saves. And with 104 saves in the league, LA Galaxy’s David Bingham tops the ranks for the number of saves made, a figure which is a testament to his skill set as a goal-keeper.
Defenders for LAG vs SS Dream11
With a cleansheet extremely unlikely today, our only consideration when picking out defenders came down to the players who’ll meticulously maraud their way down the pitch and indulge themselves in their side’s attacks. This sees us bring in leftback Diego Polenta from LA Galaxy while from Seattle Sounders we have also opted for their leftback Nouhou Tolo and centreback Xavier Arreaga.
Midfielders for LAG vs SS Dream11
With 11 assists, the highest for his side, CAM Nicolas Lodeiro is the first player who comes in from Seattle Sounders for his. The player has been pivotal to the 38 goals his side have mustered till now, leaving defences in disarray by opening up defences with pinch perfect passes and crosses.
We have also brought in both the CDMS from the side with Cristian Roldan and Gustav Svensson pivotal to their side’s chances of winning this match. LA Galaxy will unleash an onslaught on the side, one the two CDMs will need to help curtail along with their backline.
From LA Galaxy we have Jonathan dos Santos, part of the two man pivot in the centre of the park come in for us. With Kitchen injured for this one, the onus on Santos to deliver an incisive performance will increase and we envisage him to register a solid display.
Strikers for LAG vs SS Dream11
The side’s top scorer with 16 goals and 3 assists, Zlatan Ibrahimovic comes into our side from LA Galaxy. Out of the 32 goals the side have managed to score, the dependence on one player to score a majority of them is clearly apparent and Ibrahimovic should end up doing the brunt of the scoring for the side today as well.
Uriel Atnuna comes in as well from the side while from the Sounders we have opted for the pick of Jordan Morris.
Captain And Vice-Captain for LAG vs SS Dream11
Lodeiro is our side’s captain for today while Ibrahimovic is the vice-captain.
