LAFC set all-time MLS points record with historic 2019 season

Will the 2019 edition of LAFC go down as the best MLS team of all-time?

They made a strong case after their 3-1 win over the Colorado Rapids on Decision Day, presented by AT&T

On top of the Supporters' Shield they clinched and the Concacaf Champions League they locked up, LAFC set a few more team records, taking the lead of their captain, Carlos Vela, who smashed the single-season goals record with 34 goals after his hat trick.
