Match preview

LAFC are back at the top of the Western Conference, so will they stay there and claim a second Supporters’ Shield in four years?

Last weekend, the Black and Gold beat Nashville 2-1 at Geodis Park.

Cristian Arango breaking the deadlock from an extremely acute angle before José Cifuentes fired home the winner.

Gareth Bale also made his debut off the bench in Tennessee while Giorgio Chiellini started in Tennessee.

Following that win, LAFC have now won each of the last 14 MLS matches in which they’ve led at any point.

Steve Cherundolo’s team have now won six of their last eight so remain top, one point above Austin.

In stark contrast, Sporting Kansas City are rock bottom of the Western Conference, 22 points worse off than their visitors.

Peter Vermes’ side were demolished 3-0 by Real Salt Lake last weekend; Roger Espinoza sent off on a miserable night in Utah.

So, the Wizards have still only won five times in 2022, with their play-off aspirations fading fast.

Will LAFC be too strong at Children’s Mercy Park?
