St. Louis City has won more points than any other team in the 2023 MLS. Whatever happens in the remainder of the season, the brand-new MLS franchise will almost certainly advance to the knockout stage. These guys were brilliant in the early stages of the season, but their form has dipped over the last couple of weeks.
Since the end of the summer break in the 2023 MLS, these guys are 2-2-2, with their most recent win happening in late August. They’ve been doing great offensively, scoring 13 goals in the last six games. Their defense hasn’t been that great, though. St. Louis City players have conceded 11 goals since the end of the Leagues Cup.
It’s a similar case when it comes to LAFC. This team is 2-0-3 since the end of the Leagues Cup with a 10-9 record in those five games. In their most recent game, they won El Trafico, beating their city rivals LA Galaxy 4-2. The win has certainly given them a massive morale boost ahead of the trip to St. Louis.
St. Louis City vs. Los Angeles FC Prediction
This is going to be a fantastic game as both teams score and concede a lot of goals. That said, one of our top St. Louis vs. LAFC predictions is over 2.5 goals. But who’s going to score more? We think the reigning MLS Cup champion has a slight edge.
