Best Los Angeles FC Betting Predictions
Los Angeles FC had an outstanding season in 2019. The team finished the season in first place with 72 points, 21 wins, nine draws, and four losses. LAFC left the second-placed team, Seattle Sounders FC, far behind with a 16 point lead.
How will this club fare in 2020? With Carlos Vela, the best MLS player in 2019, in the squad, we are optimistic that we will be witnesses to yet another excellent year of premium soccer as far as LAFC is concerned.
History of Los Angeles FC
Even though this club was founded in 2014, the Black and Gold played the first MLS game in March 2018. Vela himself assisted Rossi who scored in the first half and determined the final result – 1:0 over Seattle Sounders FC. The team finished the season in third place of the Western Conference, and fifth overall.
However, 2019 was significantly more successful. LAFC secured the first position both in the Western Conference and overall. However, in the 2019 MLS Cup Playoffs, this club suffered a defeat in the semifinals.
When Chivas USA ceased to exist in 2014, this allowed Los Angeles FC to enter MLS. The owner at the time was Henry Nguyen. Peter Gruber joined Nguyen as the executive chairman and owner. Bob Frankly became the head coach in 2017, having previously coached Swansea City in England.
A fun fact about this club is that whenever it meets the city rival, LA Galaxy, these two teams participate in LA Derby or El Tráfico.
This team’s best result is surely the first place in the 2019 Western Conference season. This was followed by winning the Supporters’ Shield, the greatest trophy in MLS a soccer club can win.
As this club is relatively new, there haven’t been that many players who have played for it as opposed to the myriad of high-profile soccer stars who have gone through LA Galaxy, for example. The most famous player this team can boast of is surely Carlos Vela.
This Mexican winger hit the net 15 times in 2018, and as many as 38 times in 2019 (in 36 appearances). This achievement brought him the title of the top MLS scorer in 2019, having left the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimović in the second position.
