With the visitors boasting a list of star-studded names and in a desperate search for points, check out SinkorSwimSports for our Nashville vs LA Galaxy prediction with all the latest MLS 2022 betting odds to follow! 

Nashville vs LA Galaxy Preview 

Nashville’s first season back in the Western Conference has been relatively solid, all things considered. Gary Smith’s men currently sit fourth in the Conference tables with 12 wins, comfortably nestled in for qualification to the 2022 MLS playoffs. 

The team has also been in stellar form heading into their final fixtures, winning their last four games with 14 goals scored and just one conceded. 

German midfielder Hany Mukhtar has been the show’s star so far, leading the 2022 MLS Golden Boot race with 21 goals in 29 games played this season. 

As for LA Galaxy, Greg Vanney’s star-studded team might have the games in hand, but the side needs to find some points if they want to book their play in the postseason. The Galaxy are three points off the playoffs currently, albeit with two games in hand on Portland Timbers, having gone unbeaten in five heading into this fixture. 

Javier Hernandez’s 14 goals have been the foundation of Galaxy’s playoff push, though his embarrassing last-minute panenka penalty attempt against Sporting Kansas denied him a hattrick, and the side an extra two points.
