LA, who once again lost to Colorado without its full complement of starters, look east towards DC in what would seem to be a game that should be easily managed. DC is the worst team in the league, on 14 points from 27 games, and have only scored 16 goals this year. That being said, LA has had a hard time away from Carson this season. With a 4-8-2 record, any away game isn’t a lock even if it’s against MLS’ worst team. On top of that, LA has a big game against Seattle next week. Add to that, this will be the first of 3 games in a week for LA between MLS and CCL play. Needless to say, this game can have all the makings of a trap game if LA doesn’t stay focused.
