Few sides in MLS can claim to be enjoying the rich form that the hosts are heading into this game - and with a bevy of big European recruits, headlined by Gareth Bale, heading into their squad for the second half of the season, they have every reason to like their chances.

But head-to-head against the Galaxy, they have struggled to deliver the results they want - and, arguably, the psychological block at hand could prevent them from going all the way this season.

Predicted LAFC starting XI: Crepeau; Fall, Ibeagha, Murillo; Hollingshead, Ginella, Acosta, Blessing, Escobar; Arango, Musovski.

Goalkeepers Bond, Lopez, Klinsmann
Defenders Araujo, Williams, Coulibaly, Villafana, DePuy, Ferkranus, Leerdam
Midfielders Raveloson, Vazquez, Costa, Kljestan, Alvarez, Aguirre, Saldana, Perez, Harvey, Delgado
Forwards Cabral, Grandsir, Chicharito, Dunbar, Edwards, Joveljic

Galaxy cannot quite match up to the efforts of their local rivals this season, but they already have derby bragging rights, not once but twice this term, including in the U.S. Open Cup.

If anything, that will drive them on to make it three from three, and really get under the skin of their hosts.

Predicted Galaxy starting XI: Bond; Edwards, Williams, Coulibaly, Araujo; Alvarez, Delgado, Raveloson, Grandsir; Hernandez, Joveljic.
