The MLS team welcomes USL Championship side

LAFC are all set to host Loudoun United FC at the BMO Stadium for a Round of 16 qualification game in the US Open Cup.

While LAFC have seasoned campaigners in their ranks, Loudoun are a new side. It is as if a side filled with hope and passion have stepped onto the green! Founded in 2018, in Loudoun County, Virginia, as a reserve team to one of MLS’ original teams, DC United, Loudoun United sit in 11th place in the USL Championship’s 12-team Eastern Conference.

LAFC are on a roar lately with a 3-match winning streak. They will look to shrug off any doubts, if any, early in the game. The winner of the clash will march on to the last eight of the US Open Cup.

Kick-off

Wednesday: 22nd May 2024, 3:30 AM BST (8:00 AM IST)

Location: BMO Stadium

Form

LAFC: W-L-W-W-W

Loudoun United FC: D-W-L-L-W

Players to watch

Denis Bouanga (LAFC)

Denis has scored 8 goals and has provided 6 assists already this season. He has become the leading striker in the team due to his goal-scoring exploits. Having scored a brace in the last game will surely lift his confidence to a new high that could help him look more threatening in the cup competition.

Zach Ryan (Loudoun United FC)

The 25-year-old striker has been Loudoun’s brightest spark throughout the season. With a return of 3 goals and 2 assists in 11 games, Ryan has assured his team of a mid-table season in the USL. He is 6 feet tall and uses his height to a good advantage against defenders – giving them a tough time at marking him.

Match facts

  • In their last 3 games, LAFC have just conceded once while scoring 8 goals en route to a 3-match winning streak
  • Loudoun are coming on the back of a 3-0 victory, but before that failed to score in the back-to-back defeats
