LAFC are back on the road after a quick trip to the house. The team are set to take on the always tough, Sporting KC, as they look to shake off this incredibly bad run they have found themselves in. Not just the lack of results, the team has seemingly hit a wall in terms of scoring goals, looking far less dangerous than we have grown accustomed to.

LAFC haven’t won a match since the 2-0 win at home over San Jose Earthquakes way back on May 20th. Since then the team have lost five matches, secured one draw, been eliminated from one tournament, lost the Finals to another, and have only mustered one goal. Yes, you read that right, just a single goal in six matches. If that doesn’t scream problem, not sure anything will. On the flipside, Sporting have been one of the best teams in the league in the same span, and the black & gold know it.
“We know it’s a tough game, a very good team. I saw today, since May they are top four in points so its a team that is in a good way right now” said LAFC defender Aaron Long. “We know we are going to have to go there, and grind, and do whatever we have to do to get a result.”
LAFC: OUT – Maxime Crepeau (left leg), Sergi Palencia (lower extremity), Aaron Long (head)
Sporting KC: OUT – Tim Melia (quad), Kortne Ford (Achilles surgery), Logan Ndenbe (hamstring), Graham Zusi (hamstring), Willy Agada (tibia stress fracture), Marinos Tzionis (international duty). QUEST. – Andreu Fontas (hamstring), Kayden Pierre (hamstring), Dany Rosero (hamstring), Johnny Russell (hamstring)
