Aiming to make it 3 MLS wins on the bounce in midweek, Los Angeles will make the journey to a having a hard time Austin in the early hours of Thursday early morning.
Starting with the hosts, while Austin may have managed to land a much-needed increase versus Portland last month, the MLS’ newest franchise have really come crashing pull back to earth. Still sat rock-bottom of the Western Conference and tipped as a landslide pick to raise the wood spoon this season, Head Coach Josh Wolff discovers his side in the midst of a real nightmare. Last seen over the weekend when putting in another woeful display screen, the Green and Blacks were hit with a 3-0 drumming away at Houston. Now losing each of their last three matches on the spin and managing to summon just 3 points from their last 7 contests, Wolff will have a real headache over his side’s glaring issues at the back. Consisting of signing off August with an action-packed 5-3 defeat in the house against Dallas, Thursday’s hosts have actually delivered 10 goals on their three-match losing run.
As for the visitors, while Los Angeles may have signed off August in the middle of their own battle, the Whites do discover themselves enjoying what has actually been a current boost. With their sights now securely set on clinching a Final Series area this season, Head Coach Bob Bradley saw his side put on another all-action affair over the weekend. Ultimately landing a 3-2 success versus Real Salt Lake on home soil, the former USA employer has actually seen his side muster 7 points from their last three MLS contests. Managing to discover a way to construct off of their thumping 4-0 win versus Sporting KC on September 4th, LAFC should also be increased by their latest meeting versus Thursday’s hosts. When the two sides last faced off back in July, Bradley’s men gathered a deserved 2-0 success in Austin. Given the recent gulf in class, we’re backing an away win at appealing odds here.
