LAFC sealed a really stunning season with the Supporters’ Shield and will now play their last match of the regular season. They will play host to Colorado on Sunday, who will come here looking only for a win. They also need other results to go their way in order to have hopes for the playoffs though.

Colorado (12-15-6) did a great job in their last match, where they beat Dallas by 0-3 at home and could have easily scored more goals. They have been in really great form lately, with four wins in their last five. But they are sitting at the 9th spot of the Conference with 42 points, three points behind Dallas and the last playoff spot. Colorado have been mediocre on the road so far (3-9-4), winning just two of their last ten away matches.

LAFC (20-4-9) are coming into this match after a 1-1 draw on the road against Minnesota United, in a match where they took the lead. They have really slowed down in their last matches of the regular season, winning just one of their last seven (1-1-5). But they easily captured the Supporters’ Shield and are still sitting at the top of the Conference with 69 points. They have been equally strong at home (12-1-3) but won just one of their last four there (1-1-2).

Colorado beat LAFC by 0-1 at home earlier in the season, but LAFC won both matches against Colorado last season with clean sheets. Colorado need a win here in order to reach the playoffs and I wouldn’t be surprised if they managed to cover the spread.
