LA Galaxy go into this game with 38 points secured

Whilst Galaxy need a positive result from this fixture, they cannot afford to throw caution to the wind. Another successive defeat for Galaxy after losing against Real Salt Lake and Austin would represent a worrying sign of where they are just now.

Some statistics are more relevant than others they say, and three losses for Galaxy seems very relevant. With sixth, they currently sit 38 points in the League having won 11 games, drawn five matches, and lost 11 meetings.

Playing at home, Galaxy have won seven matches, drawn two fixtures, and lost four games.

LA Galaxy will have secured 41 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

Los Angeles FC arrive at this game, having secured 33 points so far this season

Is this to be the game where Los Angeles to put a halt to their recent record of poor results? They go into this fixture on the back of two recent defeats to Portland Timbers and San Jose.

Los Angeles will be hopeful of shaking off the poor form that has seen them lose three games this Major League Soccer season. With 33 points, they are established in ninth in the League having won nine meetings, drawn six fixtures, and lost 12 matches.

It must be a worrying prospect for Los Angeles to go back on the road, with a bud run of away performances under their belt this season. So far they have only secured three wins and one draw to the home team.

A victory for Los Angeles FC would put them on 36 points.
