Match preview

The CONCACAF Champions League winners take on the current league-leaders in a blockbuster Friday night MLS clash.

Last weekend, LAFC continued to underline their trophy aspirations, beating Sporting Kansas City 2-0 at Children’s Mercy Park.

Cristian Arango emphatically broke the deadlock before Gareth Bale came off the bench to fire home his first MLS goal.

That victory means Steve Cherundolo’s side have now won three successive matches and seven of their last nine.

So, the Black and Gold remain top of the overall standings, now three points clear of their nearest challengers.

Seattle Sounders meanwhile have featured in four of the last six MLS Cups, also being crowned kings of CONCACAF back in April.

However, right now, the Rave Green find themselves below the play-off line, something they’re desperate to rectify.

Brian Schmetzer’s side lost three successive matches before last weekend’s comeback victory over Colorado Rapids.

Jordan Morris cooly ended the 343 minute goal draught before Nicolás Lodeiro’s penalty snatched the points.

This win at Lumen Field was made all the more impressive by Kelyn Rowe bizarre red card early in the second half.

So, the Sounders are now ninth, one point below the west’s play-off line.

Will LAFC be too strong at Banc of California Stadium?
