Match preview

Los Angeles FC: Supporters’ Shield winners 2022.

Last weekend, LAFC rubber stamped the shield by beating Portland Timbers 2-1 at Providence Park, leaving it late but winning in the 95th minute, thanks to Denis Bouanga’s astonishing goal.

This is actually the Black and Gold’s first road victory since 6 August, but their relentless form in the first 75% of the season has got them over the line.

Excluding MLS’ founding fathers, just three clubs have won the Supporters’ Shield within five years of joining the league.

They are Miami Fusion (2001) and LAFC themselves, who set a then single-season points record back in 2019.

Now though, Steve Cherundolo’s side are focussed on taking the club to MLS Cup for the very first time.

Given that LAFC enter in the Conference semi-finals, scheduled for 20 & 23 October, they’ll get plenty of time off, so will be looking for a victory on shield presentation day.

This exact fixture could be LAFC’s next, with Nashville having secured their own post-season participation.

The Boys in Gold were actually beaten 2-1 by Houston last weekend, but are guaranteed a top seven finish.

Nashville debuted in MLS in 2020, and have never failed to make the play-offs, which is a solid achievement.

Now, Gary Smith’s side are hoping to better LA Galaxy’s result, they’re in Houston simultaneously, thereby securing a home first round match.

That’s going to be challenging though, with LAFC big favourites to win this one at Banc of California Stadium.
