Fans are anticipating the probable debut of their newest acquisition this weekend amid the hype that accompanied Gareth Bale’s arrival in Los Angeles.
Everyone connected to LAFC must continue to be focused on trying to win the Western Conference despite the possibility of the Wales international’s debut.
Steve Cherundolo’s club was under pressure to perform in the derby with Los Angeles Galaxy last week after a shocking 1-0 loss to Vancouver Whitecaps.
The score was tied at 1-1 going into the fourth quarter, but Jose Cifuentes and Cristian Arango scored twice in the next three minutes to tie the game.
With four victories in their last six games, LAFC has just about managed to keep up with Austin, but they cannot afford to make another mistake in their upcoming match. Nashville has done well to hold into third place at this point considering they haven’t won consecutive games in the MLS since the beginning of April.
Prior to hosting Seattle Sounders last time out, six goals were allowed in a doubleheader with Portland Timbers and Charlotte. Just before the halftime siren, Hany Mukhtar’s goal gave Gary Smith’s team a 1-0 victory.
That victory marked their third at home this season, albeit it is important to note that they have only played at home eight times, four less times than on the road.
The fact that neither team can say they are at their peak should further heighten the competition in this game. Although Los Angeles FC will be aiming for all three points, we believe that a draw is the most likely result and one that would please both teams.
