Los Angeles Galaxy have set themselves up for a dramatic finale of the MLS 2021 regular season as they host Minnesota United at Dignity Health Tennis Center on Sunday in a must-win game.

The hosts' chances of making it into the playoffs rest completely on the outcome of the game and a win will guarantee them a spot. If they drop points here, they will have to hold their breath for the outcome of other games.

For Minnesota United, a draw would be enough to see them through to the playoffs.

Los Angeles Galaxy vs Minnesota United Prediction

Minnesota United recorded a home win last time around but have poor away form, winning just three games in the 2021 regular season. The Los Angeles Galaxy have eight wins at Sunday's venue and home advantage could just do the trick for them here.

We predict the game to be a closely contested one, which should end in a narrow win for the home side.

Prediction: Los Angeles Galaxy 2-1 Minnesota United
