Looking to impose themselves as visitors

Another team to consider this season has been Austin FC because so far this season and despite the little experience of the team after having been created a few years ago, the rookies have been talking about in MLS after being the overall runner-up in the Western Conference and making their home a real fortress to get points, likewise, they have a great team full of individualities as several of their men stand out in the scoring or assists charts, so they will be looking to pull off a surprise at the Banc of California Stadium and cause an upset to the overall leader.
8:52 PMa month ago

To make their stay at home count

On the other hand, LAFC is on a good pace in the eleven completed MLS rounds, as they are currently in first place overall in the MLS Western Conference with 26 points that have been the product of 8 wins, 2 draws and a loss. Likewise, after having a poor season in 2021, LAFC is repositioning itself as one of the teams that are beginning to raise their hand to be considered as a contender for this year's MLS title.

Big game in the conference

MLS will have another great regular season match when LAFC hosts Austin FC at home, both teams have dominated the MLS Western Conference and so far, they are part of the few teams that have maintained their consistency at the beginning of the season, also, both have a great offensive power as in the case of Austin FC where two of his men are the kings in the scoring and assists tables, on the other hand, LAFC does not have great individualities but with a great collective game that has made them reign in the Western Conference.
