Rossi is back for LAFC:
Houston roll with this XI:
LAFC are off to an unbeaten start through two games, with an opening-week win over Austin FC followed by a draw against the Seattle Sounders. Houston, meanwhile, have had a mixed bag so far, beating the San Jose Earthquakes 2-1 at home in Week 1 and then losing 2-1 against the Portland Timbers on the road.
LAFC will be boosted by the return of forward Diego Rossi, who will likely start if he’s ready to go for a long shift. The reigning MLS Golden Boot winner hasn’t played yet this season, and while the club has held down the fort without him, having him back should help considerably. But Carlos Vela has been ruled out another week, something Bob Bradley foreshadowed during media availability this week. Still, alongside Rossi’s return, Danny Musovski looks like he’ll be available again, so hopefully LAFC can unleash some real firepower down on the Dynamo defense.
Will LAFC get back in the win column and start their road slate on the best note? Will Houston prove the are getting to grips with the black-and-gold? This is going to be another fascinating encounter and I can’t wait to tune in.
According to our partners at DraftKings Sportsbook, as of Friday evening, LAFC are (+138), Houston are (+165) and a draw is (+270), so LAFC are slight favorites, presumably with some concerns about their road form after last season’s struggles. Guess we won’t know until they play a few games away from home, right?
