Los Angeles FC vs Seattle Sounders Match Preview
Two of the three favourites for 2019 MLS Cup glory go head-to-head on Easter Sunday with Los Angeles FC aiming to supplement last season’s two victories over Seattle Sounders.
LAFC edged out Seattle by the only goal in each of their Western Conference fixtures which occurred early in their inaugural MLS campaign, with Diego Rossi becoming the very first competitive scorer for the Californian side.
The young Uruguayan striker, signed from Penarol in his homeland, has continued to shine since then and, along with former Arsenal forward Carlos Vela, is spearheading LAFC’s assault on this year’s MLS Cup title, for which they are favourites.
Bob Bradley failed to cut the mustard as Swansea manager but he is proving very effective back in his native USA, having steered his team to the top of the overall standings with 19 points from a possible 24 so far.
But second to LAFC are their next opponents Seattle, three points behind, while LA Galaxy complete the triumvirate of clubs located close to the Pacific coast who have displaced the New York duo and Atlanta as the teams to beat this season.
Although LAFC lost away to Vancouver Whitecaps on Wednesday, they had previously been in terrific form and we are backing them to maintain their 100% home record here.
