MLS Football: Real Salt Lake To Meet LAFC

The Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC) have started their Major League Soccer campaign very well. They are only the second MLS expansion team to win their opener. They went away to defeat Seattle Sounders 1-0 following the footsteps of Chicago Fire in 1998. Funny thing is both teams were coached by Bob Bradley.

It has been a nice start but they are set to meet with Real Salt Lake. Real Salt Lake played a 1-1 draw with FC Dallas at the Toyota Stadium so they would be keen on victory in their first home game. Real Salt Lake played well with Nick Rimando impressing. Joao Plata scored in the first half but they thwarted their effort by an own goal by Marcelo Silva.

The MLS Cup playoffs are set to kickoff so the big question is who will be the winners at the end of the day? Chicago Fire are set to host the New York Red Bulls as the Cup begins on Wednesday.

There is widespread belief that Toronto would do enough to win the Cup this time. They were very close the last time and with their current team, they could really go all the way this time. While history does not favour them that much, Toronto FC have always been a consistent side in the league. The Reds could finally make history this time.


Although ties were said to be cut at the end of last season, the latest cyber theatrics between Zlatan Ibrahimovic and United’s Coach Jose Mourinho rings clearly opposite to what many believe was the Swede’s one and successful season in England.

Even before he joined the Red Devils last year’s summer just after parting ways with PSG, making the popular veteran sojourn from the high tables of European football to less competitive leagues like the Chinese Super League or the MLS was frankly what was on the mind of any ardent follower of the professional sport.

For what it’s worth though, the big Swede did have a remarkable season with the Red Devils as he topped their goal contribution chart with 28 strikes despite having his run cut short by a knee injury in April.

However, it seems neither the coach nor fans are particularly confident on the current crop of forwards’ ability to guarantee Zlatan-like records and are such have been flirting with the idea of resigning the Swede for another year – the coach through dropping press room hints for Ed Woodward while the fans, hashtags.

Clubs that are competing in the MLS now have an average valuation of $180 million which is significantly more than how it used to be years ago.

Players from all corners of the globe are entering the MLS as it´s growth keeps increasing and the commissioner Don Garber has recently talked about this positive turn that the American League has been going through as Garber said:

“Many of our players are coming from places where it’s not as easy to live, and they might not have the same economic opportunities or the same educational opportunities for their families¨

Garber continued on talking about the increase in value that clubs in the MLS have sustained as they are worth around 80% more than 4 years ago. Continue reading “The growth and value of the MLS continues to increase”
