Will LAFC’s winning run continue?
On Tuesday night, Kwadwo Opoku scored the only goal as the Black-and-Gold beat bottom of the table D.C. United 1-0 at Banc of California Stadium.
This means Steve Cherundolo’s side have now won seven successive MLS matches, just the second club to achieve this.
Seattle Sounders’ league record of nine straight wins, set in 2018, is certainly in their sights.
As is a second Supporters’ Shield in four years, with LAFC currently nine points clear at the top.
Things aren’t looking so good for San Jose Earthquakes who currently find themselves second bottom of the west, nine points from play-off contention.
Alex Covelo’s team were hammered 4-1 by FC Dallas last weekend, with Jeremy Ebobisse’s thunder-strike a contender for best consolation goal of the year.
So, the Quakes are now winless in five and another season without play-off football looks a certainty.
