Los Angeles are fresh from demolishing Orlando 4-1 and will be very prepared and focused for this game. At their impressive stadium, the Banc of California they have they have won 3 straight games in a row and remain unbeaten. But they have drawn too many games and dropped some points at home as a consequence.
