LAFC are back at the Banc! After a 2 away matches, the Black and Gold come home to face Toronto FC. 

Toronto sit 4th in the east and are looking to clinch their spot in the MLS Playoffs. A win vs LAFC would be perfect for them. They are looking to rebound from a 1-0 loss earlier this week in the Canadian Championship. Before Wednesday, they had been unbeaten for 9 straight games in all competitions. 

For LAFC, this match is a different story. LAFC have not won a match all month. Since August 25th, we have only picked up 3 points (out of a possible 12). But for most of that, LAFC were without some big names due to international duty and injury. Carlos Vela, Brian Rodriguez, Eduard Atuesta, Mark Anthony Kaye and Walker Zimmerman should be back in the lineup and well rested after a full week of training. 

Tonight. 7:30. Be there at the Banc (Get there early! First 15,000 get an LAFC X Hello kitty doll) or tune in on YouTube TV.
