Match preview

After a heartbreaking derby day defeat last weekend, can Western Conference leaders LAFC bounce back?

Last Saturday, Steve Cherundolo's side travelled to Carson for el Tráfico, but found themselves 2-0 down to bitter rivals LA Galaxy.

Cristian Arango halved the deficit with just ten to play before, in the 98th minute, Latif Blessing thought he'd snatched a dramatic equaliser.

However, the goal was chalked off for a very tight offside following VAR review, leaving LAFC disobedient and beaten in the derby.

This ended the Black and Gold's undefeated start to the 2022 season, having amassed 13 points from the first 15 available, only drawing with Portland.

So, LAFC still lead the way in the west coming into this weekend, looking to get back on track as they return home.

Sporting Kansas City meanwhile finished as best of the west in both 2018 and 2020, but currently find themselves down in 12th.

Peter Vermes' men were beaten again last weekend, this time 2-1 by Nashville at Children's Mercy Park, despite Rémi Walter giving the hosts the lead.

This means the Wizards have just six points on the board, losing five of seven matches so far, including suffering defeat in all four away fixtures.

Will LAFC be too strong at Banc of California Stadium?
