Los Angeles FC vs DC United
Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 27th May 2018
Kick off at 03:00 UK/ 04:00 CET
Venue: Banc of California Stadium (Los Angeles).

Los Angeles FC will take on DC United which should be a good game when the two teams clash on Sunday. Los Angeles are 2nd in the western conference and are 4 points behind leaders Sporting Kansas City so have an opportunity to try and close the gap at the top.

However whilst they have got off to a good start in the league campaign recent form has dipped and the club have only won 1 game in their past 4 matches. This came to a head last weekend when they lost 2-1 at Portland Timbers. The club have gone in for extra training and a team talk to try and turn their form around. At home from 4 games played they remain unbeaten with 2 wins and 2 draws.

DC United are rock bottom of the eastern conference and how times have changed for the club. They do have 3 games in hand but they have won just 2 all season and are 9 points just from a playoff place. They are trying to recover and won 3-1 last weekend against San Jose Earthquakes.

That win was their first away win of the season and otherwise from 7 games they have lost 5 and on average are conceding 2 goals a game.

Los Angeles FC vs DC United Prediction

This will be an historic fixture as these teams meet for the first time and we think we will see a very interesting game. The home team are the better side with the better form and we will go for them to get all three points. DC United did well in beating San Jose last weekend but LA are a class up from that.
