Los Angeles Football Club will play their first home game of the month when they take on Austin FC They will however have to take care of business in the Concacaf Champions League as they face off against the Vancouver Whitecaps.  This weekends game will be a rematch of last years Western Conference Final. In which LAFC won with a dominant 3-0 scoreline and advanced to play the 2022 MLS Cup. Austin has had a slow start to the season and currently have a 2-1-2 record. They come off a 1-1 draw against the Colorado Rapids. Which coincidentally was LAFC’s last rival and also tied with them 0-0. LAFC have had success at home this season going 3-0 in league play. With victories against the Portland Timbers, New England Revolution, and FC Dallas. LAFC will need to continue this good streak at home if they are to catch up the surprise upstarts St. Louis. Who lead the Western Conference with 15 points.

LAFC Remains Undefeated

Los Angelinos are just one of three teams who remain undefeated this season. The other two are Minesota United and FC Cincinnati. While it is a small sample size it is impressive since they are currently balancing two competitions. They are also missing a game as what shouldve been the season opener was rescheduled. It’s also worth noting that they have two clean sheets on the road. Sure they are 0-0 ties but against Seattle and Colorado those are always a good score to have. The Black and Gold have also done this with their backup goalkeeper John McCarthy. As he has been in goal this year while Maxime Crepeau continues rehabiliting his injury from last season. So far it has been a perfect start to the season for the Black and Gold. Now as the season progresses we should expect a dip in quality and performance. As, the schedule will become hectic and matches will pile up and fautigue will set in. For now lets enjoy this momentum LAFC has forged and hope they can pull out positive results in this tough month of April.
