Los Angeles FC meets Philadelphia Union. This is the fourth meeting in the league. Only one of the three games so far has seen an outright result, and that was a 4-1 win for LAFC in the very first meeting, back in 2018.

Adama Diomande was the winner of the match, scoring a hat trick for LAFC. Latif Bossing scored their fourth and final goal. Union was 2-0 down at halftime, but Fafa Picault managed to bring them back into the game. His goal, however, could not inspire a comeback and was a consolation at the end.

Since then, the two sides have drawn both their matches – the last one being a 3-3 draw in 2020. There were many twists and turns in the match, with LAFC leading the charge from the beginning. LAFC dominated possession, had more chances and won the game. However Union scored three goals with five of their shots.

Another drama-filled match is anticipated this weekend. Both sides are off to a great start to their season, and they will want to continue that trend. Although both teams lost once in the first nine matches, LAFC has seven victories to Union’s six.

Los Angeles FC can extend the lead at the top to 5 points

LAFC has had a great start and is currently unbeaten in five matches. After VAR ruling out a late goal, the season’s one loss was controversial. LAFC was beaten by LA Galaxy in their derby match.

Portland Timbers manage to hold them to a 1-1 draw, despite going down to 10 men. Mamadou Fall scored the equalizer in the 93rd minute of the game to salvage a point.

The poor performance was a wake up call to the players and they rebounded well. LAFC won three consecutive matches and beat Inter Miami, Vancouver Whitecaps and Orlando City SC easily.

They were the best team and team to beat in all of the league’s divisions. LA Galaxy was determined to become the first to defeat LAFC. El Trafico was able to give the home team a shocking 2-0 advantage in the second half thanks to goals by Sega Coulibaly (and Javier Hernandez).

LAFC did not have an answer but were given a slight chance when Cristian Arango scored with 10 minutes left. Latif Bossing seemed to have brought them back level, but VAR disallowed the goal because the LAFC star was not onside at the time the ball was being played.

The league leaders weren’t happy about the decision but couldn’t change it as the game ended. Sportking Kansas CXCity was angered and they responded with a 3-1 win. They then defeated Orange County SC 5-1 in the US Open Cup.

Philadelphia Union Have Slipped Up After A Wonderful Start

Coming off a good pre-season, Philadelphia Union were confident of getting into the groove quickly. The team was unbeaten during the friendly matches and showed promise of being a good league player.

They started the season against Minnesota United. However, things didn’t go according to plan. Robin Lod gave the away team the lead in the second half and the home side was in complete control.

Jim Curtin required a response from his players. They did a great job in responding. Lassi Lappalainen gave CF Montreal the lead just before the half, but Daniel Gazdag & Alejandro Bedoya took control of the second period to win the Philadelphia Union game.
