The LA Galaxy and Los Angeles FC are gridlocked ahead of El Trafico’s return this Saturday, sat fifth and sixth in the Western Conference, respectively. A single point separates the pair as they revive one of Major League Soccer’s biggest rivalries, despite the fact 2021 is only the fourth season in which it’s been played. The Galaxy lead the overall series 4-3 ahead of a meeting that could catapult either team to first in the conference, with LAFC one of only three teams in the West yet to suffer defeat.

El Trafico has quickly developed its renown as one of the more anticipated rivalries in MLS, garnering all the more attention thanks to the Mexican properties each squad possesses. Bob Bradley has been without 2019 MVP Carlos Vela since he suffered a hamstring injury in Week 1, but the LAFC manager gave his star forward a chance of featuring at Dignity Health Sports Park:

On the other side of the aisle, Javier Hernandez has recovered from a sluggish first season in the United States and leads the MLS scoring charts with five goals in three games this term. Chicharito has more than doubled the goal tally of his debut MLS season in a fraction of the time, and Hernandez previewed El Trafico, as well as his rivalry with former Mexico team-mate Vela:

Los Angeles FC were 2-0 victors when this fixture was last played in October, but Bradley’s side are yet to beat the Galaxy on their own turf in four attempts to date. Greg Vanney will get his first taste of the derby after leaving Toronto to coach his old club in January, having recently suffered his first defeat in the job, a 3-0 loss to the Seattle Sounders. The Galaxy’s reserves looked out of this world when rocketing to a 5-0 win over their LAFC counterparts on Thursday, a result the first-team ranks will hope to replicate in Week 4:

While Saturday’s hosts lead the all-time series, the fact LAFC edge the aggregate goal count 24-23 is a sign of how back-and-forth El Trafico has been until now. The first five meetings between these teams were either drawn or decided by a one-goal margin, but the divide has been wider of late, with at least two goals separating the pair in their last five derby duels. A potential pathway to the top of the Western Conference is ample reward for the winner of this particular matchup, where LAFC hope to outshine the Galaxy’s stars in front of their own fans.
