LAG vs LAF Dream11 Team: Table toppers LA take on third placed side LA Galaxy in one of the most resounding clash of Major Soccer League
When the fixture list was drawn up at the onset of the 2019 edition of the Major Soccer League, today’s encounter was one which everyone had an eye out for. Not only are these two sides massive rivals, coming from the city but also heavily touted to go the full distance and lay a claim for walking away with the prestigious trophy under their arms.
And winning the battle till now, it’s been Los Angeles who have emerged without any doubt as the most complete and well-rounded outfit in the league. Emerging as clear frontrunners for the title, the side have imbued in it an astonishing bunch of players who have encapsulated the defensive and attacking segment to perfection.
Sitting 12 points ahead of La Galaxy with the paltry two defeats throughout their 20 matches, Los Angeles have been the side to follow for the other partaking outfits. They’ve scored a momentous 53 goals, letting in a mere 17 at the same time and currently sit on a three match consecutive winning spree, dismissing sides from their sight with disdain.
Elsewhere in the Western Conference, although Los Angeles have been assured of a spot in the next round, they have started wavering off late. With 3 defeats in their last 5 encounters, the side have had to bear the brunt of Zlatan Ibrahimovic with the striker’s indulgence in himself seeing him emerge as a non team player. He’s failed to score when needed to, leaving his side suffering the abolishment of his refusal to work around the team’s gameplan,
Taking on each other today in a match which accords massive stature, expect both these outfits to elevate their performances massively. This is a fixture unlike any other, one where current form plays little role with LA Galaxy surprisingly yet to be defeated in this short by mammoth rivalry with the one win and two draws.
With Los Angeles extending their lead in the Supporters’ Shield with a 3-1 win over Houston Dynamo in their previous match, the side will be buoyed by the proposition of putting clear distance between themselves and LA Galaxy in third place. This should be a skirmish for either side but Los Angeles have been absolutely pinch perfect this season and should go onto win this one.
