Los Angeles FC vs LA Galaxy - Standings prior to the game
Los Angeles FC make it to this game in third place of the MLS' Western Conference, one point behind Seattle and eight behind conference rulers St. Louis FC. A loss here combined with wins by Real Salt Lake and Houston could see them drop to fifth, which would be a serious hit to their hopes to defend the title. On the other hand, LA Galaxy enters this game in 13th place, seven points away from playoff spots but with two games in hand. Either way, the most-winning team in MLS history needs to keep their options alive and a victory here could be crucial to their options of success.
Los Angeles FC vs LA Galaxy - Team news
The Black and Gold return to action trying to end their current slump. Prior to Saturday's game, Steve Cherundolo's men have lost three in a row, which has let their rivals catch up in their conference. Their last win came against Colorado almost a month ago, but they took a dip in form to lose consecutive games against Charlotte (1-2), Inter Miami (1-3), and Portland (0-2).
On the other side of the pitch, the Galaxy makes it to this match on a four-game streak without a loss, although two of those games have ended in draws. Greg Vanney's team had a spiritual victory last time out, when they erased a two-goal lead by St. Louis City to level the game despite the major difference between the performances of both clubs this season. Their most recent win came against San José, a team they defeated while playing on the road 3-2 back in August.
