Los Angeles Form & Team News

LA have been the stand out team in the MLS this season. The Californian side have a comfortable lead at the top of the MLS Western Conference in what is only their second full season in the division.

Bobby Bradley’s men have won nine of their ten games at home this season, drawing the other one. They will come into this game full of confidence after winning their last game 2-0 away at New England, with striker, Diego Rossi getting his 13th goal of the campaign.

Rossi is second only to Carlos Vela at LAFC this season. The Mexican has been the division’s top scorer, banging in 22 goals in as many games so far this campaign.

The club are expected to name the same starting 11 that started their game against New England last weekend.

New York Red Bulls Form & Team News 

New York Red Bulls arrive in California trying to find some consistency. The East Conference side are third in their table right now and have won two and lost two of their last four fixtures.

Chris Armas’s side still have games in hand over the teams above them, but they are unlikely to get a victory away in LA.

The team have struggled to find consistency away from home, having won three of their eleven away games, drawn three and lost five. Their last outing, however, was a victory at 1-0 victory at home against Toronto, with unlikely scorer, Kemar Lawrence grabbing the winner.

The Metros may hand a debut to Southampton loanee, Josh Sims. The highly-rated winger arrived at the club on deadline day and could provide the team with the creative outlet they have been so desperate for this campaign.

Los Angeles Vs New York Red Bulls Match Analysis- Comfortable win for the home side

While New York Red Bulls are far from a bad side, they won’t have enough in the tank to take down a Los Angeles FC side who have been exceptional at home this campaign.

The Banc of California stadium has been a fortress for Bobby Bradley’s men this season. They have won all but one of their games at the stadium and scored an impressive 30 goals in the process.

Carlos Vela will want to get back on the scoresheet having not scored last week, and Rossi will want to continue scoring and attempt to catch up with his high flying teammate.

The home side can expect a comfortable victory on Sunday night and currently find themselves valued at 1.30 with Bet365, which doesn’t offer great value to punters.
