The home team lost their last league match

LAFC have seen highs and lows in the 2024 season; in just one of their last four MLS games, they have emerged victorious.

In addition, they failed to score more than one goal for the first time since mid-March (a 2-0 loss against Minnesota United) in their loss to the Quakes, which was their first in this tournament since their 3-2 defeat to the Colorado Rapids in late March.

Vancouver Whitecaps have provided their away fans with a great deal of excitement in 2024; they have won three of the four MLS road games and have not lost any of them.

Victory or another draw would bring their undefeated MLS streak outside of BC Place to five games, the longest run for this team since 2021 (seven). Another win on Saturday would equal their record for triumphs on the road from the 2023 regular season.
