LAFC are one of three unbeaten teams left in the league, sitting atop the Supporters’ Shield, dropping points in just one game so far this season. Most recently, they outlasted Orlando City SC 4-2 in Florida, completing a season sweep in the state for the black-and-gold. The last two games, LAFC have gone from behind or conceded an equalizer and come back to win, so it looks like they’re in great form so far this year.
They’re taking on a Galaxy side that are coming off a high themselves, most recently beating the Portland Timbers 3-1 in Portland. Chicharito’s brace powered the away win in a tricky venue, and while the Galaxy have lost two of their five games this season, they haven’t yet played truly badly and been rather unlucky in their losses to date.
So, will LAFC continue their successful start with a rousing result against their archrivals, or will we see another gut-punch in Carson? Hope springs eternal, and here’s hoping LAFC can get a good result to open this year’s version of the rivalry.
