The Black and Gold are flying high at the start of the season. They boats league’s best record with 8 wins, 3 draws and only 1 defeat in 12 matches so far (29-8 goal difference). LAFC have thus scored by far the most goals I the entire league and they have the joint best defense of the competition as well after 12 rounds.
What else can the main coach of the year candidate Bob Bradley wish for? He has the most lethal attacking line-up in the league. It’s led by an amazing Carlos Vela who has 12 goals in 12 appearances so far in the season and is competition’s top scorer (three goals more than Zlatan Ibrahimovic in second). The Mexican forward was on the scoreline in Saturday’s 0-3 drubbing of Columbus Crew away at MAPFRE Stadium.

Los Angeles FC vs FC Dallas: Prediction
Young Dallas squad opened the new season in a promising fashion, but their form has hit a stumbling block in the last couple of weeks. Toros head into this off the back of consecutive league defeats to Houston Dynamo and New York RB. They shipped five goals in the process and will face serious troubles
keeping hold of league’s top scorer on Thursday night.
Los Angeles FC have been impeccable on the home patch so far in the season. They won five and drew one of six league games in front of the home crowd. Anything but an easy straightforward victory for the hosts would be a massive surprise for us here.
