This Saturday sees Los Angeles go head to head with Kansas at Banc of California Stadium – Kick-off 5:00am GMT.

Kansas will travel to Los Angeles, as second plays eighth in the table.

Los Angeles FC go into this meeting with 24 points secured

Losing away to Vancouver Whitecaps 2-1, which followed them drawing home to LA Galaxy 3-3, this is a worrying run of form for Los Angeles Manager Bob Bradley, who goes into this fixture, knowing that only a positive result will be good enough.

Draw, lose, repeat, it’s a recurring pattern for Los Angeles this season, as they have failed to secure a win now in eight meetings. They currently stand eighth in the League, with 24 points having won six games, drawn six fixtures, and lost nine games.

When Los Angeles host Kansas, they will do so on the back of four victories and five darts on their own ground.

Winning this fixture will see Los Angeles FC on 27 points.

This season’s Major League Soccer campaign, has so far seen Sporting Kansas City achieve 40 points

Kansas have been inconsistent in their previous two games, drawing 1-1 at Colorado Rapids and 0-0 at Minnesota United, so a win in this fixture must be the focus.

Kansas are quickly becoming the Major League Soccer’s draw specialists, having recorded three in their last three meetings. They currently sit in second place, with a total of 40 points having won 11 meetings, drawn seven games, and lost four fixtures.

Kansas’ away record is remarkable and poses a significant threat to Los Angeles. In the 11 games they’ve played on the road this season, they have so far won six matches, drawn two meetings, and lost three matches.

Sporting Kansas City will have 43 points if they manage to secure a victory.
