Desperate to try and extend their buffer at the top of the Western Conference table this week, Seattle will make the trip to the Banc of California Stadium in the early hours of Wednesday.

Starting with the hosts, throwing away the lead on their travels over the weekend and far from at their best, Los Angeles would have been glad to have left Minnesota with a 1-1 draw. Still sat three points adrift of breaking into the Final Series spots, Head Coach Bob Bradley has seen his side show some real inconsistencies this season. However, returning from October’s international break with back-to-back 3-1 and 3-2 wins against San Jose and FC Dallas, the one-time Swansea boss has seen his side largely impress on home soil. Including a 4-0 romp against Sporting KC last month, the midweek hosts have collected nine points from their last four matchups at the Banc of California Stadium. Likewise, gaining a reputation for their lively outcomes, it should be highlighted LAFC have seen eight of their last nine MLS outings finish with both teams finding the net.

As for the visitors, while Seattle might still find themselves holding a three-point buffer at the top of the Western Conference, they are enduring a recent wobble. Despite storming their way into October enjoying an eye-catching four-match winning run, the Greens have really come crashing back down to earth. Last seen over the weekend getting hit with a 2-1 defeat against Sporting KC on home soil, Brian Schmetzer’s men have collected just a single point from their last three MLS matchups. With that run highlighted by a 2-1 loss at the hands of Houston Dynamo earlier in the month, Seattle are enduring their worst domestic run since the end of July. With each of the last four meetings between Wednesday’s opponents finishing with both teams finding the net, we’re backing a similar outcome here.
