LAFC supporters couldn't have asked for a more magical start to their club's existence in 2018. They were the highest scoring team in the Western Conference, they contended for the No. 1 seed through Decision Day and Banc of California Stadium was rocking.
The only blemish? That first-ever playoff match.
LAFC will want to make up for that wild 3-2 home loss to Real Salt Lake in the 2018 Knockout Round, a result which ended their season prematurely. They'll bring back the bulk of the 2018 squad to do it, including captain Carlos Vela, winger Diego Rossi and scoring sensation Adama Diomande.
With Bob Bradley as the head coach, you can bet there will be no letdown in 2019.
