How to Watch LAFC vs. Fresno FC: Lineups, game thread, live updates

Experience the magic of the cup (hopefully!) for the first time with us.

MLS: Los Angeles FC at FC Dallas Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Full time: LAFC win! Two goals are enough to send them into the Round of 16. Nice job for the black-and-gold.

56th minute: GOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Latif Blessing makes a late run into the box and strokes a shot past Kyle Reynish. LAFC finally get their reward for the dominant play, just need to see this out.

53rd minute: GOOOOOOOOOOOAL! On a scramble in front of Fresno’s goal from an LAFC corner kick, Diego Rossi gets the final touch as the ball trickles over the line. Ref hesitates for a moment, but he ends up giving the goal. LAFC lead.

Halftime: LAFC majorly dominant in statistical categories so far, but no goals to show for it. Fresno FC started well and spent a fair amount of time in LAFC’s box early, but LAFC came on as the opening 45 wore on and put Fresno under major pressure. They just need to score a goal (preferably more).


LAFC play a mix of starters and reserves, but all in all a pretty experienced group:

Fresno FC play a strong lineup, as you would expect they would do against an MLS side.

Los Angeles Football Club jump into the U.S. Open Cup fray for the first time ever on Wednesday, as they host USL’s Fresno FC in the fourth round of the 2018 tournament.

Fresno, a fellow expansion team, entered alongside fellow USL teams in the second round, defeating local NPSL side Orange County FC 2-0 before downing amateur side Sporting Arizona FC 2-1 in extra time in the third round.

Will LAFC get back to winning ways against a lower-division opponent? Will Fresno keep their cup run alive with an upset? We’ll find out tonight at The Banc.
