LAFC vs New Yew Red Bulls preview

The visitors arrive on the west coast having enjoyed an excellent 3-0 cup win in midweek over local rivals NYFC, their fourth win in their last five games.

Each of those four wins have seen Gerhard Struber's men score at least twice and against an LA team who have kept just one clean sheet in their last six competitive games, there could be some interest in backing the visitors to get among the goals.

Only four teams in both Conferences combined have scored more goals than the Red Bulls this term, but all four have played more matches than the team from New York.

One of those teams is LAFC, who are averaging exactly two goals scored per game, and another high-scoring match looks extremely likely on Sunday evening.
