It’s as you were for LAFC, who keep the same group that won the last game 10 days ago.

LAFC got a little over a week off between games, and now they’re back in action, looking to extend their winning streak to three games, when they host Real Salt Lake at The Banc on Saturday.
Of course, LAFC beat RSL the game before the last one, 1-0 in Utah on July 3. It was a bit nervy at times, but for a team that had been struggling before that, it was a big result. Now, LAFC will look to push on and keep moving up the table, as they hope the last two games show they are finally on track after a tough start to the season.
RSL have been all over the place this season but they’re coming off their best win of the season, 4-0 over the Vancouver Whitecaps at the teams’ currently shared venue. Damir Kreilach earned MLS Player of the Week honors off his performance in that game, and he’s torched LAFC in the past so he’s one to keep an eye on, for sure.
Mark-Anthony Kaye will not feature in the game as he’s on international duty with Canada at the Gold Cup, while Danny Musovski (knee) and Mahala Opoku (knee) are both out injured for LAFC. RSL are missing Douglas Martinez at the Gold Cup, and Jeizon Ramirez, Zack Farnsworth and Andrew Brody are all out on the injured report for the visitors.
Can LAFC keep rolling, or will RSL prove to be a tougher test this time around? All the games are big, as Bob Bradley says, and LAFC will look to take advantage of a good opportunity in this game.
According to our partners at DraftKings Sportsbook, as of Friday evening, LAFC are (-200), RSL are (+525) and a draw is (+360), so the odds are heavily favoring LAFC and hopefully they come through on that projection.
