They are in the last place in Western Conference and without a chance to catch the playoff place. This will be the third season in a row in which Houston will finish in last place in Western Conference.
Houston is in the worst form in the MLS league and one of the worst home sides in the league with only 16 points won at their stadium. With 45 goals conceded their defence is one of the worst in the league and they are 11 games without a clean sheet. This season they have only five clean sheets.
Los Angeles FC Team News
Los Angeles has high hopes for this season after missing the playoffs in the previous season. Currently, they are the best team in the MLS league with 18 wins and 57 points after 27 games.
Their results improved a lot since their signed Gareth Bale and Giorgio Chiellini. But in the last two games, they suffered two heavy defeats against San Jose and Austin where they conceded six goals in those games.
They want to return to winning ways and a game against Houston will be great for doing that. Los Angeles has the third-best attack in the league and they failed to score in only two games this season. Carlos Vela is once again in great form with eight goals and seven assists but the main man is Cristian Arango who scored 13 goals and has four assists. In the last month and a half, Arango has seven goals and three assists in MLS.

Houston Dynamo vs. Los Angeles FC Prediction
As their h2h suggests we can expect a very interesting game with a lot of goals. But we think that Los Angeles is much closer to winning all three points. Houston is in a very bad run and they will be in big trouble against the great Los Angeles attack.
You can go with BTTS and try over 2.5 goals. Or Los Angeles to win with any goals combination. We believe that LA will bounce back from two consecutive defeats.
Prediction: Los Angeles FC to score over 1.5 goals
