LAFC vs. Los Angeles Galaxy: Where to Watch, Live Stream, Latest Team NewsThe two Los Angeles rivals collide this weekend, as Los Angeles FC hosts the Galaxy in the late kickoff on Sunday night. El Trafico's first four installments last season saw the Galaxy stay unbeaten, courtesy of two wins and two draws, but that run could come to an end on Sunday. Top of the table in the Western Conference by 19 points, such has been LAFC's dominance so far this season that it could secure both the conference title and the Supporters' Shield before Labor Day. Carlos Vela took his personal tally to 26 goals for the season on Wednesday night, scoring a brace in the 4-0 trouncing of San Jose Earthquakes, which included a stunning solo goal.
The Mexican leads the race for the Golden Boot and has been instrumental in his side's run of form this season. The Galaxy has a talismanic striker of its own and one who revels in his role of party spoiler. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has scored 20 goals this season, including braces in the Galaxy's last two games, and decided El Trafico in July. The Swede engaged in a war of words with Vela, suggesting he was the best player in the MLS before netting a hat-trick to give the Galaxy a 3-2 win. The second Los Angeles derby of the season could be just as exciting. Here's everything you need to know ahead of Sunday.

These two teams have played to some absolutely bonkers finishes in recent memory, quickly becoming one of the most intense rivalries in the league. LAFC, as the Supporters' Shield winners, earned a bye in the first round and will be expected to not only win on Thursday but also challenge for the MLS Cup title. Their opponents, meanwhile, grabbed the fourth playoff seed in the Western Conference, finishing just three points above the cut line in a crowded mid-table field. They topped Nashville SC in the opening round 1-0, and look to be a threat on both sides of the ball. That all means nothing when these two teams match up, however, as chaos usually reigns supreme.

But he should start on the bench. The biggest question for LAFC head coach Steve Cherundolo is at the back, having rotated center-backs Giorgio Chiellini, Jesus Murillo, and Eddie Segura for most of the second half of the season. His regular trio of midfielders Kellyn Acosta, Ilie Sanchez, and Jose Cifuentes should all start, with Latif Blessing and Jhegson Mendez first off the bench depending on game situation. LAFC projected starting lineup (4-3-3): Crepeau (GK) — Palacios, Chiellini, Segura, Hollingshead — Acosta, Sanchez, Cifuentes — Bouanga, Arango, Vela. Run it back. 🔁#ForLosAngeles pic.
Both teams to score is a massive favorite, while the total is up to 3. 5. Home teams have dominated in this series (just one road win across 14 all-time meetings), but there's an opportunity for the visitors to shock the home fans at Banc of California Stadium. The Galaxy are in great form, helped by the arrival of Riqui Puig, while LAFC are trending in the other direction: LAFC went 3W-5L-1D to end the regular season compared to the Galaxy's 4W-1L-4D in their last nine overall. There's a real chance for an upset in this match.
twitter. com/hIXBY7A9Ik — LAFC (@LAFC) October 19, 2022 The Galaxy are also mostly healthy, missing just Jorge Villafana, who's been out all season with an ACL tear. The acquisition of Riqui Puig has been a complete home run, and he's a lock to remain in the starting lineup. His arrival coincides with the late-season explosion from Chicharito Hernandez, who has 11 goals in his last 13 games. The Galaxy's 21-year-old Julian Araujo leads the team in minutes this season and was spectacular in the playoff win over Nashville. Winger Kevin Cabral has seen starts of late, and could be an option if a change is made, but will more likely see time off the bench.
LA Galaxy projected starting lineup (4-3-3): Bond (GK) — Edwards, Caceres, Coulibaly, Araujo — Puig, Brugman, Delgado — Grandsir, Chicharito, Costa. — LA Galaxy (@LAGalaxy) October 18, 2022 LAFC vs. LA Galaxy betting odds, pick & prediction Odds via Caesars (USA), Sports Interaction (Canada), & SkyBet (UK).
