Los Angeles FC (LAFC) take on Vancouver in the quarterfinals of the CONCACAF Champions League at the BMO Stadium on Tuesday. LAFC takes a comfortable 3-0 lead into the game and will look to secure their place in the semi-finals of the competition.
Strong start to the season
LAFC has had an impressive start to the MLS season, remaining unbeaten and currently sitting at 3rd place in the Western Conference standings. With a 3-0 win over Austin FC in their last game, the team will carry that momentum into the upcoming clash against Vancouver.
Vancouver, on the other hand, has been inconsistent in recent times, winning only two of their last five games across all competitions. Currently placed eighth in the Western Conference, they will be hoping to turn things around with a win against LAFC.
Injury woes for Vancouver
Vancouver will miss the services of Sergio Cordova, Alessandro Schopf, and Andres Cubas due to injuries. Meanwhile, LAFC will be without Maxime Crepeau and Tony Leone for the game.
With the contrasting form and quality of both sides, it’s difficult to imagine Vancouver coming out on top. We predict LAFC will win the game 2-0 and comfortably progress to the semi-finals of the CONCACAF Champions League.
the game promises to be an interesting matchup as both teams aim to progress to the next round of the competition. Fans can expect an exciting encounter between the two sides.
