Los Angeles FC picked up a 2-0 win over New York Red Bulls on Sunday to extend their lead at the top of the MLS Western Conference to four points. Cristian Arango and Diego Palacios scored in the 67th and 70th minutes respectively to help LAFC beat NY Red Bulls at home.
They have been undefeated in their last four matches and have won three of those games. LAFC have a four-point lead and game in hand over Real Salt Lake, who are currently sitting second in the MLS Western Conference standings.
Steve Cherundolo's men will be confident heading into the game against FC Dallas as they have enjoyed a rich run of form, having conceded just one loss in their last nine outings. They will also be boosted by the signing of Gareth Bale on a free transfer.
Meanwhile, FC Dallas are currently fourth in the MLS Western Conference standings after picking up 26 points from 16 games. They were held to a 2-2 draw by Austin FC in their latest outing.
Dallas have not been in great form of late and have picked up just a single win in their last five matches.
Prior to that, FC Dallas had gone on a nine-game unbeaten streak in the MLS. But the latest slump has caused them to return to the drawing board and they will have their work cut out against an in-form LAFC on Wednesday.
