LA Galaxy will come against LAFC at the Dignity Health Sports Park in Los Angeles, in the 29th week of the 2021 MLS season on Sunday, October 3, 2021, at 8:00 PM (ET). Here, you will find the expected lineups of both teams that will appear in the El Tráfico derby of Major League Soccer Week 29.
This will be their 11th MLS regular-season meeting. Los Angeles Galaxy are the firm favorites in head-to-head clashes, having celebrated a victory on five occasions so far; Los Angeles Football Club have grabbed a triumph just once to this day, and the remaining four matches have ended in a draw.
Their only previous game was played on August 28, 2021, when Galaxy salvaged a late 3-3 thrilling draw away at the Banc of California Stadium. It promises to be a more exciting clash as they meet for the third time in the 2021 MLS season.

Los Angeles Galaxy are coming off a midweek loss to Real Salt Lake, making it eight games in a row without a victory, with five defeats and three draws, putting them in sixth place in the Eastern Conference. The lone injury worry for the Galaxy this weekend is Derrick Williams.
LA Galaxy possible starting XI:
Bond; Araujo, Coulibaly, DePuy, Hamalainen; dos Santos, Raveloson; Alvarez, Lletget, Grandsir; Chicharito.
LAFC probable lineup
Los Angeles FC is also coming off a midweek loss to the Portland Timbers, giving them three losses in a row. They are currently two rungs out of the Eastern Conference playoff zone. Carlos Vela's quad injury is still bothering him, and he will be unable to participate in the grand derby.
Due to an adductor problem, Tristan Blackmon will continue to miss out. Eddie Segura and Kwadwo Opoku, however, are both sidelined due to knee problems. Eduard Atuesta and Brian Rodriquez are both questionable for the weekend and will most likely miss this game.

Blackman; Fall, Murillo, Ibeagha, Palacios; Ginella, Atuesta; Ngalina, Cifuentes, Edwards; Arango.
