LA Galaxy Win MLS Regular Season In EA Sports FIFA 12 Simulation, Revs Not Showing Much Improvement

The official EA Sports FIFA 12 simulation of the 2012 MLS regular season is out (via EA).

The Los Angeles Galaxy were able to defend their 2011 MLS Supporters' Shield title in the video game simulation. In fact, the Galaxy are in store for a stellar season of 22 wins and 75 points if the game is accurate. The Galaxy are also predicted to have the league's leading scorer in Robbie Keane with 19 goals.

The New England Revolution can expect to see two more wins (7) over their 2011 total but also four more losses to finish with 28 points, the same total they had in the real 2011 MLS season. However, while the Revs were tied for last place in MLS in 2011, the simulation of the 2012 season would have New England finishing ahead of the expansion Montreal Impact squad (25 points) and the Portland Timbers (24 points). The video game doesn't think much of the Revs' offense as it only projects them to score 25 goals (fewest in MLS), 13 less than 2011.

In case you were wondering about EA's track record with this sort of thing, they correctly predicted the Galaxy would win the Supporters' Shield and MLS Cup in 2011. On the other hand, the 2011 simulation did incorrectly predict a 5th place finish in the Eastern Conference for the Revs. The game only undersold the New England offense by four goals last season.

Can the results swing more in New England's favor in real life this season? The season starts on March 10 against the San Jose Earthquakes.
