LAFC vs Austin betting tips: Major League Soccer preview, predictions and odds

It’s first vs third in the Western Conference with the credentials of both set to be tested at Banc of California Stadium.

Austin FC have been MLS’ surprise package so far in 2022, flying high in just their second-ever season.

The Verde and Black’s fantastic form has been, mainly, due to home wins, winning four of six matches at Q2 Stadium.

However, Josh Wolff’s men come into this one following back-to-back defeats, 1-0 at home to LA Galaxy and then 2-1 at RSL on Saturday.

It does’t get any easier for Austin who face Orlando, LA Galaxy again, CF Montréal and Dallas after this, the teams fifth, seventh, fourth and second.

Before then, the Texans face the ultimate challenge as they take on the early Supporters’ Shield front-runners away from home.

Although, LAFC did lose for just the second time in 2022 at the weekend, going down 2-0 at Colorado Rapids thanks to a pair of first half penalties.

Before this, Steve Cherundolo’s sole loss as Head Coach had been in el Tráfico, winning four of six home games, drawing the other two.

Will LAFC be too strong for Austin?
