More midweek action for LAFC tonight, with the team back in action after snapping their six-match winless run over the weekend. After a hard-fought 2-1 win on the road against Sporting KC, the team return on the quick turnaround to take on fellow Western Conference leaders, Seattle Sounders. It’s a battle of top three teams in the league, with LAFC looking to take full advantage of being at home, while continue to shake off the recent slump.

The last five meetings between the two sides have been fairly even. LAFC hold the slight advantage with two wins to Seattle’s one, with both sides splitting points twice. The most recent match ended in a 0-0 draw earlier this season. The biggest obstacle Los Angeles will have to face this evening, will be managing a short-handed lineup with many players away on International Duty. Even with the expectation of having the youngsters getting some more playing time, this is a team that will be aiming for the three points, especially at home.
LAFC: OUT – Maxime Crepeau (left leg), Sergi Palencia (lower extremity), Jesus Murillo (lower extremity), Aaron Long (international duty), Jose Cifuentes (international duty) QUEST – Kellyn Acosta (lower extremity), Timothy Tillman (lower extremity).
Seattle Sounders: OUT – Sota Kitahara (right quad strain), QUEST – Jordan Morris (left adductor strain), Nico Lodeiro (right adductor strain)
