Los Angeles vs. DC United – Preview and Prediction

Los Angeles vs. DC United –  When Los Angeles FC plays host to a struggling DC United on Tuesday night, they will be looking to make it seven MLS victory in a row.

The host team is currently in first place in the Western Conference with 54 points after 24 league games, while DC is last in the Eastern Conference with just 22 points after 24 games.

With a 5-0 victory over Charlotte FC on Saturday night, Los Angeles FC extended their outstanding run of play to six straight MLS triumphs.

The squad led by Steven Cherundolo is currently top of the Western Conference with a record of 17 wins, three ties, and four losses from 24 games.

With 54 points, they are six points ahead of Austin, which is currently in second place. In their most recent two Western Conference campaigns, LAFC, which was only created in 2014,

seventh and ninth, but first in conference and overall in 2019. Gareth Bale and Giorgio Chiellini joined a formidable roster that included Carlos Vela.

In addition to playing San Jose Earthquakes, Austin and Houston Dynamo before the month is up, Cherundolo’s team will fancy its chances of defeating a hapless DC United on Tuesday night.

DC United, meanwhile, will enter this match off of a 1-0 loss to the New England Revolution on Saturday night at Gillette Stadium, with Carles Gil scoring the game’s only goal.

With just one victory in their previous eight league games, Wayne Rooney’s team is currently in last place in the Eastern Conference with 22 points after 24 games with a record of six victories, four draws, and 14 losses.

The Black and Reds finished eighth in the Eastern Conference last season, but at this moment they are 11 points behind that spot and presently seven points behind Atlanta United, who finished first.

Given that LAFC has a strong record thus far and has scored 53 league goals, Rooney’s club would not have wanted to play LAFC after yet another loss.

Los Angeles vs. DC United – Betting Analysis

Due to fitness issues, neither Bale nor Chiellini played against Charlotte on Saturday; however, both are anticipated to return for this game, with Chiellini perhaps starting in the starting XI.

Bale’s participation is anticipated to come from the sidelines as the 33-year-old has yet to make an MLS debut this season, despite having scored twice against Kansas City and Real Salt Lake.

Vela is expected to start with Cristian Arango and Brian Rodriguez, like he did against Charlotte. Danny Musovski, Julian Gaines, and Erik Duenas are out for the hosts.

Brad Smith, Bill Hamid, Hayden Sargis, Jacob Greene, and Adrien Perez are among a long list of DC United players that are injured. All five players are expected to miss the remainder of the month.

There aren’t anticipated to be many changes for this game because head coach Rooney would have been happy with some aspects of his team’s performance against New England on Saturday.

However, it is anticipated that Kimarni Smith will be added to the side, and Taxiarchis Fountas may be given a role in the front of the assault. Ravel Morrison, a former Man United youth, ought to keep his place in the middle of the field as well.
