But there are no hotter teams in MLS right now ahead of a clash at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park Friday (10 pm ET | UniMás, Twitter, MLS LIVE on DAZN). Over the course of the last six games, both teams have accrued 14 points through four wins and two draws.
LAFC’s run is less dramatic since it’s a continuation of their season-long form. After a scoreless draw against the Chicago Fire at home on May 4, LAFC picked up two more clean sheets in wins over Columbus Crew SC and FC Dallas in the first of back-to-back matches.

Four different players scored in the opening 55 minutes en route to a 4-2 victory over the Montreal Impact, followed by a 3-2 win over the Portland Timbers, spoiling the grand reopening of Providence Park.
