Los Angeles FC leads the Western Conference with nine wins, three draws and three losses, just one point ahead of Real Salt Lake.

For their part, the New York Red Bulls are in third place in the Eastern Conference, but only one point behind leaders New York City, so they will be aiming for victory.

Motivated bulls

Led by Austrian coach Gerhard Struber, the Red Bulls go into this game in high spirits after a midweek 3-0 victory over New York in the quarter-finals of the US Open Cup to advance to the semi-finals for the first time since 2017.

Moreover, the New York side recorded their best start to the regular season since 2018. However, as visitors, they failed to win any of their previous three matches, nor score in two of them.

As for LAFC, their mission is to try to go three games unbeaten guided by the talent of Mexican Carlos Vela and Colombian Cristian Arango, who managed to get on the scoreboard in the last two matches of the California team.

The team coached by Steve Cherundolo scored 30 goals but also allowed 17 goals conceded, hence the recent signing of Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini.

Focus on defense

Moreover, the California team is expected to further strengthen its attacking axis with the arrival of Welshman Gareth Bale, who will join the team soon.

For this game, the heat and humidity can be the difference in favor of the Californians, because the New Yorkers are not used to playing in such conditions and their wear will be more important.
