EA SPORTS FIFA 15 PREDICTS LA GALAXY TO WIN MLS CUP WITH 2-1 VICTORY OVER NEW ENGLAND REVOLUTION IN NEW SIMULATION ON ESPN.COM

EA SPORTS has predicted the LA Galaxy will be victorious over New England Revolution, securing Landon Donovan a record sixth MLS Cup in his final MLS match. Utilizing the gameplay engine that drives FIFA 15 on next generation consoles, Xbox One and PlayStation®4, EA SPORTS was able to simulate MLS Cup 2014 under the same conditions the teams will face this Sunday, December 7 in Los Angeles, California. It was a nail-biter match, with a heroic showing by Gyasi Zardes, who scored the game-winning goal in Extra Time, breaking the 1-1 tie in the 115th minute, clinching a 2-1 win for LA. Last year, EA SPORTS correctly predicted a Sporting Kansas City win in MLS Cup 2013. Watch all the action unfold in the FIFA 15 MLS Cup simulation video hosted on ESPN.com.

I'm still mad the Sounders didn't get in. I wish instead of the away goal tie-breaker, we'd just go into extra time but eh. I think I'd rather New England win, I don't like LA at all, so I am hoping the fifa sim is wrong.
