It’s been more than a month since the black and gold last won, with their hopes of a playoff spot gradually disappearing as the season turns to autumn.
A string of injuries – plus the MLS All-Star calls for Eduard Atuesta, Diego Rossi and Jesus David Murillo – mean Mamadou Fall could experience a rare match as Bob Bradley, fresh from his own representative commitments, could shake the pack .
Predicted LAFC start XI: Romero; Farfan, Blackmon, Fall, Harvey; Blessings, Duke, Cifuentes; Rodriguez, Musovski, Edwards.
|Position||LA Galaxy List|
|Goalkeepers||Bond, Cabral, Lopez, Von Steeg, Klinsmann|
|Defenders||Araujo, Williams, Coulibaly, Steres, Hamalainen, Villafana, Depuy, Acosta, Drack, Neal, Ferkranus, Fisher|

Rugby-to-back losses have encouraged the brakes of Greg Vanney’s team to get a place in the League Cup qualifiers, but they remain very much in the hunt near the top of the Western Conference.
Oniel Fisher could be a rare start in the lineup after Jesus Arujo was at MLS All-Stars, while Sebastian Lletget is also likely to miss out on the fight against the League MX All-Stars.
Predicted LA Galaxy launches XI: Bond; Fisher, Coulibaly, Williams, Hamalainen; Raveloson, Harvey; Alvarez, Kljestan, Cabral; Joveljic.
