Two of the worst MLS sides this season will clash on this Thursday when Chivas USA welcome Toronto FC to their Stubhub Center in Carson, California.
The hosts, Chivas, have won just once in their last 16 matches with that solitary victory coming in a US Open Cup tie against Los Angeles Blues. They last won an MLS match over three and a half months ago in March. They are currently on an eight-match winless run.
Their Canadian opponents have been equally unimpressive – if not worse – so far this season. They have won just two of their past 18 matches in all competitions. They have just 13 points to their credit from 18 games, and that explains the serious nature of their problems. Their main issue has been goal scoring as their backline is still not the worst in the league. Coach Ryan Nelsen, who used to be an uncompromising defender in his playing days, needs to do something about the offensive inadequacies of his side or his debut season in charge of Toronto FC could become a short-lived memory.
Chivas have dominated this fixture in recent years. Out of the last six meetings between these two sides, the Red-and-Whites have won four games, with Toronto claiming one and one ending in a draw.
The home ground advantage lies with Jose Luis Real’s men. They are also historically superior. Therefore, the recommended bet for this game is to back Chivas USA with NordicBet’s DrawNoBet option at odds of 1.77.
