For the first time in a while, LAFC came into a match facing what was essentially a win-or-go-home scenario on their hands. With a trip to the CONCACAF Champions League Final on the line, the black & gold were going to need a win if they wanted to secure their spot. With a single-goal scored in their 1-1 draw, LAFC secured the away goal advantage, but the Union are a side that are known for scoring more than one at BMO. Tonight was simple for the home side, win, punch their ticket to the final, and avoid all other possibilities.…

For all the history LAFC has made in their short time as an MLS club, there is one bit of history they came tantalizingly close to, that they will never be able to achieve.

Despite the opportunity at even more history lost, the team is still very much focused onย  making a return to the CCL Finals,…

To call any match a ‘must-win’ just five games into the season would be a major overstatement, but coming into this match, Angel City FC needed something to kickstart form for the long season ahead. After a slow start, despite starting the season with four of their first six matches at home, ACFC had to hit the road against the defending champions Portland Thorns. While the points are always important, Angel City more-so needed to put in a performance that they could build upon going forward.
