Los Angeles FC – Supporters Shields leader out of sight soon enough?

Gareth Bale is up and running in Los Angeles. The Welsh superstar needed only 18 minutes of this second match for his new club, signing from Real Madrid after a trophy-laden spell in Spain’s La Liga, to open his goalscoring account – starting and finishing the move that put LAFC 2-0 up on the night in Kansas City against Sporting KC. It would finish that way, handing the Black and Gold their third straight win in MLS.

They are the team everyone is desperate to beat, that is for sure. Few, though, have proven capable of rising to the task. LAFC have seven wins from their last nine league games (D1 L1) and haven’t dropped a point as hosts since mid-May, recording four victories on the bounce at Banc of California Stadium. They’ll be supremely confident of making that five having won four of six prior MLS meetings with the Sounders in LA.

Key Stat: LAFC would concede on at least two occasions in four of their six previous MLS home games (W4 D1 L1), with three of their four wins across this period achieved without a clean sheet.


Los Angeles 3+ Team Goals



Seattle Sounders – Rot stopped but issues remain?

When the going is tough and it seems everything is conspiring against you, it must be reassuring to know your team is prepared to stand up and be counted. That was how Seattle Sounders head coach Brian Schmetzer felt following last Sunday’s gutsy effort against Colorado Rapids. Behind a goal on three minutes, Sounders scored twice – either side of midfielder Kelyn Rowe’s red card – to seal a come-from-behind win.

That has stopped the rot of sorts, preventing a fourth straight loss. However it still leaves them with an unfavourable record of having lost three of their last five. As well as being a point outside the play-off line in the Western Conference in ninth. So more of the same is needed in Los Angeles this coming weekend, as they go about improving on a negative road record this term: W3 D1 L6 for the season, W1 L3 in last four.

Key Stat: Five of the Sounders six road defeats this term were ‘to nil’, while four came via the same scoreline of 1-0. In fact, all of their last six away fixtures saw Under 2.5 Goals.

Los Angeles FC Vs Seattle Sounders Betting Advice

All the momentum is with the hosts for this fixture, one which has served them well over the years. LAFC, top of the league table, are coming off a nine-game stretch in which they’ve won seven – which includes big performances against top sides like New York RB (third in the East) and Nashville SC (sixth in West) – and lost only once (conceding with minutes remaining on the clock away to Vancouver Whitecaps).


Los Angeles FC Vs Seattle Sounders – Key Facts:

  • Seattle Sounders would lose just one of five previous MLS meetings (W2 D2) against Los Angeles FC, whose record as hosts is altogether more positive. LAFC have won four of the pair’s six league encounters at Banc of California Stadium, including the latest (3-0).
  • LAFC, boasting seven wins from the last nine MLS matches (D1 L1), are unquestionnably the form team of the two though. Seattle Sounders have lost four of the last six (W2) as well as three of their last four on the road.
  • San Jose Earthquakes are so far the only hosts to put more than two goals past Seattle Sounders. However, LAFC would notch three goals in all but one of their past four home matches, with all four said matches resulting in home wins.


On top of this, LAFC’s home record in H2H’s is exemplary (W4 D1 L1). However, the Sounders were one of only two teams to stop this Black and Gold juggernaut from winning recently, holding them 1-1 at Lumen Field in June. However, repeating the trick in Los Angeles, where LAFC are bidding for a fifth consecutive home win, will be much tougher for a Seattle side with defeats in all but one of four previous road games.
