FC Dallas vs Los Angeles FC Match Preview
Los Angeles FC have established themselves as comfortably the best MLS team in the opening third of the season and aim to continue the good work on this journey to Texas.
The California franchise that only joined MLS last year are now clear favourites to be crowned champions, going into this weekend with five points more than any other team – albeit they have played their full complement of games so far, unlike some of their rivals.
Most recently, on Thursday, LAFC won 2-0 at home to FC Dallas with goals from Carlos Vela and Diego Rossi, and now they meet again even more quickly than teams would in, for example, a Champions League knockout tie!
You could forgive Dallas for wishing there was much more space between the two games because they are on a bad run at present of three consecutive losses preceded by a draw, so they need to return to their previous useful form before the rot sets in too badly.
There is hope, however, for Luchi Gonzalez’s side in that LAFC’s away record is far from outstanding because they have dropped points on half of their six road trips to date this term.
With home advantage, we will take a chance on Dallas faring much better than they did on Thursday and holding the MLS Cup favourites, thereby ending their sequence of defeats.
