VAN vs LAF Dream11 Team: Los Angeles look to further consolidate spot at the pinnacle when they take on a dismal Vancouver unit today
They have made the Western Conference of Major League Soccer their own, sitting pretty at the top with the 40 points to their name and today’s agenda is bound to be no different when take on Vancouver. With a difference of 6 points between themselves and LA Galaxy, Los Angeles would be looking to seal down on the number one berth against a side they’ll be quietly confident of putting down.
The Los Angeles side have been an example of how football should be played in the MLS for the other sides. Registering just two defeats as compared to the 12 wins for them, the tournament has been a flawless one for the side who have been unfazed by even the kitchen sink and more. They’ve dismissed side with disdain for their sides, reverberating the same pristine standards of football in every match.
Elsewhere for their opponents on the day, the land of the MLS has proved to be equally dejecting. They’ve been trounced throughout the season, failing to work on the ever growing cracks in the side which leaves them in 10th place in the conference, well 6 points behind a spot for qualifying for the next round.
While they have still managed to score at times, leaking goals at crucial junctures has lead to Vancouver’s ever waning form which sees them sitting in the trenches of the Western Conference. And up against a side who have capped off wins in the wake of their delectable attacking facet, we just don’t see Vancouver winning today.
This win is going to be as easy as they come for Los Angeles with them going onto record a massive scoreline in this encounter.
Goal-Keeper for VAN vs LAF Dream11
With Vancouver’s goal-keeper set to see the ball go past him on several occasions today, we are bringing in Los Angeles’ Tyler Miller here. He’s not managed to keep a cleansheet in the previous two matches but is a massively better option than his counterpart.
Defenders for VAN vs LAF Dream11
While Los Angeles have set the standard in the attacking department, their extreme discipline in backline has made for an even more mesmerising watch. They’ve let in just the 15 goals in 18 encounters, imbedding an extremely strong defensive setup owing to their dependable defenders.
And it’s this proposition which sees us opt for their resilient and resolute CB pairing of Scott Sutter and Tristan Blackmon unanimously. The two have been absolutely terrific to watch and have in the last couple of matches gone onto add to their skill set by proving assists to the forward line as well. Left back Jordan Harvey also makes an advent into our side with Los Angeles heavily relying on their LB and RB to make the additional runs up the pitch and support the attackers.
Midfielders for VAN vs LAF Dream11
With a heavy need to compensate ourselves with the picks from the Whitecaps we finally include their players over here with us opting for the defensive minded midfielders first. The 4-3-3 formation they play sees them heavily rely on the duo of Jon Erice and Russel Teibert to hold fort in the centre of the park and put an end to attacking moves their way along with keeping things moving with their passing.
It’s a two man partnership from Los Angeles as well with their CDM Eduard Atuesta becoming the first pick for us alongside the more attacking minded Latif Blessing.
Strikers for VAN vs LAF Dream11
Occupying the left and right wing, both Diego Rossi and Carlos Vella were among the goals in the previous encounter. They’ve been a major part of the 44 goal their side have hit so far in the showpiece tournament and the duo comes in for us.
Form Vancouver their lone striker upfront and their best attacking player the entire season, Fredy Montero wraps up our side for the day.
Captain And Vice-Captain for VAN vs LAF Dream11
We have decided to make Diego Rossi our captain for today while Carlos Vella is the vice-captain.
