FC Dallas suffered somewhat of a scare against the Galaxy on Wednesday, but they managed to hold on to their lead and grabbed all three points. They will now return home after two matches on the road, where they will play host to LAFC. LAFC have not been in the best of forms lately, having won just one of their last five.

FC Dallas (6-1-5) are coming into this match after a hard-fought 3-2 win on the road against the LA Galaxy. FC Dallas actually took a three-goal lead by the 66th minute but saw Zlatan Ibrahimovic score twice in that match. However, the second goal was at the stoppage time, so FC Dallas weren’t really threatened. They are now undefeated in their last five (3-0-2) but have kept just a single clean sheet in that span. They are sitting at the 2nd spot of the Western Conference with 23 points, two behind SKC and two ahead of LAFC. They have yet to be defeated at home (3-0-4) but have kept just a single clean sheet there. LAFC (6-3-3) were stuck in a really frustrating 1-1 draw against the visiting DC United last week. They took the lead at the 39th minute, but they were left with 10 men at the pitch just three minutes later. They were eventually equalized at the 84th minute for the final 1-1 and have now won just one of their last five (1-1-3). LAFC are sitting at the 3rd spot of the Western Conference with 21 points, having scored 24 goals so far, against 19 conceded. They have the best away record in the Conference (4-3-0), having failed to score just once in that span.

The two teams have already met once so far in the season, where they split the points after a 1-1 draw in Los Angeles. This looks like it will have a lot of goals but I will go with the home team here who have been much more stable.
