Los Angeles FC go in search of their first MLS pre-season friendly win on Wednesday when they face DC United at the Banc of California Stadium.

The visitors head into the game unbeaten in each of their three games so far and will be looking to keep the ball rolling.

Los Angeles FC continued to struggle for form as they fell to a 2-1 defeat against Toronto FC on home turf two Wednesdays ago.

They have now failed to taste victory in any of their last four games, claiming two draws and losing two, including a 5-2 loss against Colorado Rapids in last season’s MLS finale.

However, Los Angeles FC will feel confident of coming away with the desired result as they face an opposing side who they are unbeaten against in each of their previous two meetings.

Meanwhile, DC United were involved in a share of the spoils for the second game running as they played out a 1-1 draw with New York Red Bulls.

The Reds head into Wednesday’s game unbeaten in each of their last four games, stretching back to October’s 3-1 loss against Columbus Crew.

Manager Hernán Losada will now hope this fine form can serve as a catalyst for a fine start to the regular MLS season as they look to improve on their eighth-placed finish in the Eastern Conference last season.

Los Angeles FC vs DC United Head-To-Head

This will be the third-ever meeting between the sides. Los Angeles FC have picked up one win from their previous two encounters, while the spoils have been shared once.
