Two teams in really good form will lock horns on Saturday, when New England Revolution will play host to LAFC. New England are coming off a great win and have been really strong in recent weeks. The same can be said of course for LAFC, who have been leading the Western Conference for the entire season.
LAFC (15-3-4) did great to come back from one goal behind in their home match against Atlanta United. They scored four first-half goals to eventually win by 3-4. That was their fourth win in their last five matches for the MLS, but LAFC have not kept a single clean sheet in that span. They are still sitting at the top of the Western Conference with 49 points, a safe 11-point distance from the 2nd Seattle. LAFC also have the best away record in the MLS (6-3-3), the best away offense (29 goals) and the 2nd best away defense (13 conceded).
New England (9-8-6) played a pretty balanced match at home against Orlando City but ended up destroying them by a solid 1-4. That means that New England have now won three in a row and five in their last six. Moreover, they are undefeated in their last 13 matches in all competitions (7-0-6). They are now sitting 7th in the Eastern Conference with 33 points. They have not been anything special at home so far (6-4-2) but are undefeated in their last five matches there.
New England have been in tremendous form lately but they will not go on like this. They are now hosting the most dangerous visitors in the entire MLS. Los Angeles FC have won a ton of matches already but they rarely keep clean sheets. I expect goals from both sides here and quite a lot of them.
