Thursday at Banc of California Stadium, as Los Angeles host Dallas in the Major League Soccer.

Los Angeles will take on Dallas on Thursday, as ninth takes on twelfth in the League.

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

Los Angeles’s next opponents will smell blood if they begin the next match with all guns blazing. Whilst it’s understandable that they may want to do this, after their recent 1-1 draw at Houston Dynamo and previous loss to New York, The Black and Gold must get a positive result and keep defensively solid.

Suffering three losses in five matches is a terrible run of form for any club, Bob Bradley’s Los Angeles will know this and will be hopeful of turning it around. With nine points, they are established in ninth in the League having won two matches, drawn three games, and lost three meetings.

Los Angeles have won two games, drawn two meetings, and lost one game of their five League matches at home this season.

Winning this fixture will see Los Angeles FC on 12 points.

FC Dallas have so far accrued seven points in this season of the Major League Soccer

Dallas have dropped five points in their last two fixtures, drawing 1-1 at Minnesota United and losing 3-0 to Colorado Rapids.

Dallas need to produce the kind of form they have not been displaying that has brought five meetings without a win, if they are to consider finishing the season outside of the relegation zone. With twelfth, they currently sit seven points in the League having won one game, drawn four fixtures, and lost three matches.

Playing away from home, Dallas have lost three meetings.

A win in this fixture would take FC Dallas’s points to 10 in the League.
