LAFC will be readying themselves for a fight when they welcome the New York Red Bulls to California in an MLS encounter this weekend.

A 1-1 draw with Champions League holders Seattle has not done much to check LAFC's momentum, and they remain the team to beat in the Western Conference.
But this cross-country clash brings a different kind of test for the Californian outfit to weather - and they'll hope that they can pull through, particularly following the news of their capture of Italy legend Girogio Chiellini and Wales international star Gareth Bale.
Predicted LAFC starting XI: Crepeau; Palacios, Ibeagha, Murillo, Hollingshead; Sanchez, Cifuentes, Acosta; Rodriguez, Arango, Opoku
|Goalkeepers||Coronel, Meara, Marcucci|
|Defenders||Monzón, Reyes, Edwards, D. Nealis, S. Nealis, Harper, Pendant, Long, Tolkin, Castillo|
|Midfielders||Amaya, Morgan, Yearwood, Carmona, Fernandez, Cásseres Jr., Castellano, Clark, Sserwadda, Luquinhas, Estrella, Edelman|
|Forwards||Klimala, Fletcher, Ngoma, Ryan, Sow, Barlow, Wright-Phillips|
With just their cross-town rivals topping them out in the Eastern Conference heading into the weekend, the Red Bulls are very much looking the package this term.
Victory on the road would be a major statement of intent too - and they will know it, particularly after turning over Toronto the way they did last weekend.
Predicted NYRB starting XI: Coronel; Edwards, S. Nealis, Long; D. Nealis, Amaya, Casseres, Tolkin; Luquinhas, Morgan; Fernandez.
