Los Angeles FC vs Minnesota United

, KO: 03:45 May 30, 2024, BMO Stadium
Minnesota United

LOS ANGELES FC will look to continue their climb up the table as they host Minnesota United in an MLS Western Conference fixture. While both teams have impressed lately, Los Angeles are looking imperious at the moment and should have the upper hand at home.

Fourth placed Los Angeles FC have been the team in form in recent weeks as they head into Thursday’s clash off the back of five straight wins across all competitions. They claimed a 1-0 victory over Atalanta United last time out with Mateusz Bogusz getting the only goal.

The great thing about Los Angeles is that their recent form is driven by a solid defence that has kept clean sheets in their last four matches. Steven Cherundolo’s men have also won five of their last six home matches across all competitions, keeping clean sheets in the last two in that run.

Minnesota United have also caught the eye in recent weeks as they are unbeaten in their last six matches, rising to second in the standings. They have claimed four wins in that run but were held to a 3-3 draw at Colorado Rapids last time out in the MLS.

Eric Ramsay’s men have also done some good work on their travels and are unbeaten in five of their last six matches, claiming four wins in that run. However, unlike Los Angeles, they often struggle defensively and have kept just one clean sheet in their last 10 MLS away matches.

How the bookies view it: Los Angeles overwhelmingly fancied.

Los Angeles have been installed as overwhelming favourites with a home win priced at 11/20 by bet365. A victory for Minnesota United is valued at 5/1 while a draw is set at odds of 3/1.

Head to head: Little to separate them

Los Angeles and Minnesota United have claimed three wins each and five draws from 11 previous matches. Minnesota ran out 2-0 winners in the most recent meeting back in March while Los Angeles have won the last two fixtures at BMO Stadium.

Players to watch: Chanot the shield

Maxime Chanot has impressed at the back as Los Angeles have kept clean sheets in their last four matches. Playing alongside Aaron Long and Jesus Murillo, the hosts can be backed to keep a clean sheet at 13/8 by bet365.

At the other end of the pitch, Los Angeles will look to Denis Bouanga to provide the spark in attack. The forward has eight MLS goals this season and is priced at 4/5 by bet365 to score anytime.

Probable line-ups

Midfielder Eduard Atuesta is suspended for Los Angeles after being sent off last time out. Nathan Ordaz could be handed a start after sitting out the win at Atalanta.

Hassani Dotson and Caden Clark could feature from the start for Minnesota United after coming off the bench last time out at Colorado Rapids.

Los Angeles FC: Lloris, Murillo, Chanot, Long, Tillman, Ordaz, Palencia, Campos, Oliver, Bouanga, Bogusz
Minnesota United: St Clair, Taylor, Arriaga, Boxall, Padelford, Clark, Lod, Trapp, Dotson, Jeong, Oluwaseyi

Anything else catch the eye?

Los Angeles have won to nil in the last four matches and could be set for a similar outcome at 2/1 with bet365. Given their attacking quality, a -1 handicap could be considered at 11/8 with bet365.

The hosts have scored in both halves in their last three home matches and a repeat is priced at 11/10 by bet365.
