LAFC vs San Jose Earthquakes: Storylines
Los Angeles FC have dropped back-to-back games, most recently falling 3-1 to Seattle Sounders. They're clearly missing former MVP Carlos Vela, who'll be out until early October with an injury.
Diego Rossi has scored a couple of goals for LAFC to match Vela's total. Thus far, the team has won two with two draws and three losses. They've scored a whopping 16 goals but have conceded 15, which is far from ideal.
San Jose Earthquakes, on the other hand, are coming off a loss in the Cali Clasico vs. LA Galaxy. They were up 2-1 with a third of the game left but ended up losing 3-2. Now, they know they'll be in front of a top scoring team and can't make the same mistakes.
Moreover, LAFC have dominated San Jose Earthquakes thus far in this new rivalry. The home team has a 4-0-0 record, outscoring them 15-3. They're hoping to keep that trend going as they don't want to fall behind in the playoff race.
