AC&M Sports Team MLS Season Preview

AC&M Takes Their Season Picks & Predictions
After a 3-month offseason break from action, we can gladly say Major League Soccer is around the corner.  As the 2020 MLS season approaches, our sports team took to analyze what the season will hold.  We eagerly have made our predictions for the MLS cup championship and the coveted golden boot award.

Steve Marques – Director of Sports Account Services
My prediction to win:
 LA Galaxy
Top Goal Scorer:
 LA Galaxy will win the whole enchilada and sweep LAFC in both derby matchups. Chicharito will remind all Mexicans who the top goalscorer is in the history of the Mexican National Team and establish himself again as the KING of El Tri and the 2020 MLS MVP.

Pablo Arellano – Account Executive
My prediction to win: 
Top Goal Scorer: 
Carlos Vela
 LAFC will go on to win the championship after the extraordinary 2019 season from Carlos Vela. With Chicharito adding to the LA Galaxy squad, the derby will now have an added layer of excitement, ultimately showing Carlos Vela is the KING on the LA derby and once again winning the golden boot.

Evan Georges – Account Executive
My prediction to win:
 Inter Miami CF
Top Goal Scorer:
 Josef Martinez
 In 2014, Wil Trapp, former midfielder of the Columbus Crew, and I became friends on Facebook. He won me a rivalry match of FIFA 14 and I sent him the invite. Later that same afternoon, we were Facebook (best) friends. After an emotional trade this offseason, he’ll be ready to carry the torch for this expansion club.  As for Josef, he recently was spotted with a streak of blue in those golden locks so if that doesn’t make a difference on the pitch, I don’t know what will.

Ryan Brewer – Account Executive
My prediction to win:
Top Goal Scorer: Carlos Vela
Summary: NYCFC overcomes continuos playoff woes and brings back a championship to Yankee Stadium before that other team that plays there. Would love to see another big-name addition to the league by mid-season: Mandzukic? Cavani?

Carson Boykin – Assistant Account Executive
My prediction to win:
Seattle Sounders
Top Goal Scorer: Josef Martínez
Summary: All in all, Seattle is the place to be…not for the weather, but for the sports. The Sounders secured the coveted MLS Cup trophy last year-and with the majority of their 2019 roster coming back, all my eggs are placed in the Emerald city. Josef looks to win the golden boot after coming up short in 3rd place last year, as Atlanta United is in a transitioning period, they will look to Josef to carry the squad throughout the year.

Michael Duran– Art Director
My prediction to win: Atlanta FC
Top Goal Scorer: Josef Martínez
Summary: Atlanta FC will rise back from the ashes of the 2019 season and fight back to the top place of the overall chart for the 2020 MLS season. They are a fairly new team to the MLS but are very eager to win a second MLS league. Having Josef Martinez and Ezequiel Barco, a very deadly duo, they have all of the tools needed to take home the cup this year.

The first game of the 25th season of MLS play will kick off on Saturday, February 29th at 1:00 PM ET as D.C. United will take on the Colorado Rapids.
