To be fair, the Russians have been out of form lately as they are coming into this preparatory game without a win in their previous 5 encounters where they have managed to draw 3 and have lost on two occasions. With the likes of Viktor Vasin, Georgi Dzhikiya and Aleksandr Kokorin already been ruled out of the preliminary squad for the World Cup after sustaining injuries they have a lot to think about with their current form.
Austria are coming into this game on the back of 5 consecutive wins in their last 5 encounters and going with the form of Russia, Austria have the upper hand.

Sigi Schimd, the head coach of LA Galaxy, just made a sole change to the 10 man squad which won against Montreal a match which they won 1-0 despite losing their star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic to a red card in the 41st minute with the help of Ola Kamara's right footed shot. In their previous game against San Jose Earthquakes, they registered yet another win witch a sole goal by Romain Alessandrini in the 82nd minute. Now with 2 back to back wins, they would like to make a hat-trick by winning this encounter.
Recent form of FC Dallas suggests a mix of fortunes with 2 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss against New York City FC, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic back in the mix for LA Galaxy it will be a tough task for Dallas to register a win.
