What you need to know about LAFC
LAFC leads the MLS Western Conference with 25 points from their first 13 regular-season matches. In his first full season with LAFC, Denis Bouanga has had a profound impact with 10 goals in his first 12 league matches after previously starring for multiple teams in France.
His emergence has allowed Carlos Vela to adapt his role from primary scoring threat to playmaker, which likely fits his skillset better at age-34. Vela has four goals and four assists so far this season, including a brace in the 3-2 win over the Galaxy on April 16. Stream the match here.
