Los Angeles FC are fighting to retain their place in the playoff zone and while the season had been a disaster for the team, ending in a playoff spot will offer some kind of comfort. They need to continue winning games to keep their place as Houston Dynamo, Vancouver Whitecaps, Portland Timbers and San Jose Earthquakes are all within a short distance of their position.
Minnesota United are also fighting to get into the playoff zone and they are only 2 points away from the spot. They will be prepared to fight for all 3 points against Los Angeles FC and hope Sporting Kansas City and FC Dallas slip up.Grab Your Signup Bonus

Analysis and Prediction
Los Angeles FC's form at the moment is both psychological and tactical. The team struggle to bounce back from defeats throughout the season. They were boring to watch in their last game and I don't expect any changes in this game. While it is difficult to pick an outright winner in this clash, we can bet on limited goals coming in this game.
Minnesota United look like the sort of side to steal a narrow win, so Los Angeles FC had better keep a close eye on Teemu Pukki.
