Major League Soccer’s Western Conference leaders Los Angeles FC have lost only three games all season, while winning 16 with just four draws, making them clearly the best team in either conference. And now it appears that LAFC just got better, as they will be welcoming original MLS franchise New York Red Bulls just three days after adding 19-year-old Uruguayan forward Brian Rodriguez, whom the Associated Press described as one of South America’s premier young players. For a Red Bulls team looking to extend a rare two-game winning streak, Sunday night’s MLS weekend finale will pose a formidable challenge, in the match that will live stream from downtown L.A.
