Los Angeles FC vs LA Galaxy
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Saturday, 9 July 2022
Kick-off at 03:00 UK/ 04:00 CET
Venue: Banc of California Stadium.
Los Angeles FC have been the best team in the Western Conference so far and it is only deserving that they are placed at the top of the table.
They have scored the most number of goals of all the teams in the conference and they have also let in the least. They have also been the absolute best team at home so far in the West.
While they have scored 23 goals so far in front of their home crowd, none of the other teams in the West have even touched the 20 goal-mark.
Meanwhile their derby rivals Los Angeles Galaxy have had some issues with their results and their defense as well. But one thing that requires special mention is their offense.
They have been finding the back of the net consistently and even so on the road. And most importantly they have scored in plenty whenever these two teams have locked horns with each other.
By the looks of things, it is expected that we are about to witness a high-scoring thriller this weekend.
