When Los Angeles FC host Atlanta United on Wednesday at BMO Stadium, they have the opportunity to go level on points with MLS Western Conference log leaders St Louis City.

The Five Stripes are undefeated in their last four matches including a 3-3 draw against the New England Revolution at the end of May, while the current MLS Cup champions have yet to lose at home domestically this year, winning their most recent league match 2-1 against the San Jose Earthquakes.

Since Club Leon defeated LAFC in the CONCACAF Champions League (CCL) final, losing 3-1 on aggregate, LAFC's attention has turned to the league, where they currently sit third in the Western Conference with 25 points despite having played the fewest games (12).

The team of Steve Cherundolo has only lost a regular-season game at home since October 2021, and they have only given up one goal or fewer in all but one of their MLS home games this season.

The Black and Gold have conceded at least one goal in four straight games across all competitions, but LAFC has allowed the fewest goals in the league this season (10).

Atlanta is now sixth in the Eastern Conference but has scored 32 goals this year, tied with St. Louis City for the second-most goals scored this year.

While Gonzalo Pineda's team has been entertaining throughout the season, scoring multiple goals eight times, there have been some drawbacks. They have given up 28 goals, which is the second-most in MLS behind Charlotte FC (30), and the Five Stripes have lost eight points when leading in the second half.

Here GOAL brings you everything you need to know about how to watch, including TV channel, streaming details and more.
