LAFC vs LA Galaxy Preview

El Tráfico will have its first edition of 2022, and like all previous encounters, there is always a great deal of tension leading up to it. Both teams seemed to have found their stride and look to get the upper hand on their city rival in the early going in this season.

LAFC enters Saturday’s encounter in first place in the Western Conference. The Galaxy, thanks to last week’s 3-1 win on the road over the Portland Timbers, find themselves in third place. What is a bigger motivation is that they have gone winless against the in-city rival in the last six matches.

The former Chivas products and teammates with the Mexican national team and have not faced each other since they were both playing in La Liga with Real Madrid and Real Sociedad a few years ago.

Yet the main storyline in all of this is the first time that both Javier Hernández and Carlos Vela will face off on the pitch in this rivalry. Despite these two players participating in the last couple of seasons in Major Soccer in Los Angeles, they have not crossed paths in the seven previous matches all due to injury of won player or the other.

The Steve Cherundolo era started out in nearly sparkling fashion as the team currently find themselves earning 13 of the possible 15 points on the table up to this point.

For the Galaxy, they know that there is little motivation to face LAFC. Yet the problem could be when it comes to the emotions and excitement that builds up leading to game. In the overall history of this series, it’s the Galaxy that lead it with a 5-2-3 record, with them having never lost in their own backyard in six matches played there.

“In games like this, is you usually don’t have to overly motivate guys, it’s more keeping guys focused on the intentions and the execution of things,” Galaxy coach Greg Vanney said. “A big chunk of these games sometimes is just winning duels and little things, hustle, things like that, but it’s also staying focused on the attention to the game and what you’re trying to accomplish.”

Los Angeles Galaxy probable lineup:
Jonathan Bond; Raheem Edwards, Derrick Williams, Nick DePuy, Kelvin Leerdam; Samuel Grandsir, Daniel Aguirre, Rayan Raveloson, Kevin Cabral; Julián Alvarez, Chicharito Hernandez

Los Angeles FC probable lineup:
Maxime Crepeau; Diego Palacios, Mamadou Fall, Jesús Murillo, Ryan Hollingshead; Francisco Ginella, Ilie Sánchez, Latif Blessing; Brian Rodríguez, Chicho Arango, Carlos Vela
