LAFC vs Austin FC


LAFC is currently in first place in the Western Conference table with a 7-2-2 record. It lost to the Colorado Rapids last weekend, which ended its six-game undefeated streak.

Since its loss to Colorado, LAFC has not scored a goal in its last 18 matches. However, it has still managed to score at least one goal in every match during its homestand. Carlos Vela is the leading goal-scorer for LAFC with four goals, while Jose Cifuentes is the team's leading passer with three assists.

LAFC is known for its fast-paced style of play, which is very appealing to European soccer fans. The team has also led the league in the number of passes with 510. LAFC is also lethal on set pieces, as it has scored nine goals from dead ball situations.

Austin FC

Austin has been one of the league's bright spots so far this season. Through eleven games, it has 23 goals, which is tied with LAFC for the lead in the league.

Austin is led by forward Sebastián Driussi, who has 7 goals in the season. The team had a good start to the season and finished 24th in the league last year.

Unfortunately for Austin, it lost to Real Salt Lake last weekend. The team was able to score a goal in the 24th minute, but it was not enough to prevent the defeat.

After starting the season with six wins and two draws, Austin lost its last two matches. The team has struggled on the road this season, where it has only won once in its last 19 matches.
