This Monday sees Los Angeles go head to head with RSL at Banc of California Stadium – Kick-off 5:30am GMT.

Sixth placed RSL, are away to first placed Los Angeles on Monday.

Los Angeles FC remain on top of the League going into the fixture, a position they want to maintain

Los Angeles will be hoping to increase their row, after victories over both Houston Dynamo and Austin.

Also, League leaders Los Angeles keep finding ways to win, having secured 11 victories in their last 16 games is astonishing this season. With 0 wins, 0 losses and 0 draws for a total of 57 points so far this season, they have secured the top spot in the MLS.

If odds are anything to go by, RSL cannot expect to get a good result of their trip to Los Angeles. This is particularly true, given both team’s form. Los Angeles have won 11 matches, drawn two games, and lost one game at home this season.

The League leaders have set the bar high, so only a win will be acceptable for Los Angeles FC, especially if they are to maintain their position and keep the momentum to win the League.

Real Salt Lake have so far accrued 42 points in this season of the MLS

RSL come to this fixture on the back of a victory, having beaten Minnesota United 3-0 at Rio Tinto Stadium.

Also, a draw statistic of two in three meetings is not all bad, but unfortunately will not bring the success Pablo Mastroeni’s men wishes for ultimately. With 42 points, they currently sit sixth in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 0 wins, 0 losses and 0 draws.

RSL’s away record is remarkable and poses a significant threat to Los Angeles. In the 14 games they’ve played on the road this season, they have so far won three matches, drawn five fixtures, and lost six games.

Real Salt Lake will have secured 45 points so far this season, should they secure a win.
