The MLS returns to the fold this weekend with an interesting Western Conference derby as Los Angeles Galaxy take on local rivals Los Angeles FC at the Banc of California Stadium. The two sides find themselves at opposite ends of the table and will want to win this game.

Los Angeles Galaxy have endured a miserable season so far and currently find themselves rooted to the bottom of the Western Conference standings. The away side did manage a hard-fought 1-0 victory against a struggling Vancouver Whitecaps outfit last weekend and will want to get their season back on track on Sunday.

Los Angeles FC, on the other hand, have exceeded expectations this season and have experienced a resurgence over the past few months. The home side is in fourth place in the MLS table and will be looking forward to securing a top-four finish in the coming weeks.


Los Angeles FC vs Los Angeles Galaxy Head-to-Head

Los Angeles Galaxy have a superior head-to-head record against their local rivals and have won four out of eight games in this fixture. Los Angeles FC have managed only one victory and are likely to improve their record this weekend.

The previous meeting between these two sides ended in a stunning 3-0 victory for Los Angeles Galaxy. Sebastian Lletget and Cristian Pavon were on target on the day and will have to be at their best on Sunday.
