Goalkeepers Stuver, Las, Tarbell
Defenders Romana, Gabrielsen, Keller, Gallagher, Cascante, Kleemann, Kolmanic, Lima, Asensio

Austin FC is coming off of a 2-1 win over cross-state rival Houston, with Daniel Pereira and Sebastián Driussi each scoring goals in the victory. Austin managed to hold onto the ball for 61% of the match, setting the tone in the victory.

It’s been a dominant showing so far for this club, with six wins through nine matches and a plus-14 goal differential. The team has scored 22 goals, with Driussi scoring seven of those goals, tying him for the MLS lead with Toronto’s Jesús Jiménez.

But while the team has been one of the best teams in MLS, it won’t be showing that in the U.S. Open Cup, as the team was shockingly bounced in the third round by San Antonio.

Predicted Austin starting XI: Gallagher, Gabrielsen, Cascante, Lima, Pereira, Ring, Fagúndez, Driussi, Finlay, Urruti; Stuver

Goalkeepers Bond, Lopez, Klinsmann
Defenders Araujo, Williams, Coulibaly, Villafana, DePuy, Ferkranus, Leerdam
Midfielders Raveloson, Vazquez, Costa, Kljestan, Alvarez, Aguirre, Saldana, Perez, Harvey, Delgado
Forwards Cabral, Grandsir, Chicharito, Dunbar, Edwards, Joveljic

The Galaxy have won five of their nine matches so far. They’re one of three MLS teams sitting at 16 points on the year, along with FC Dallas and Real Salt Lake.

But despite the record, the Galaxy have hit a bit of rough spot. In their last three MLS games, the Galaxy have scored just one goal, which came from Dejan Joveljic in a 1-0 win over Nashville. The Galaxy have scored 10 goals this season, less than half of what the two teams ahead of them in the standings have done.

The team also recently defeated the San Diego Loyal in the third round of the U.S. Open Cup, setting up a Round of 32 meeting next week with the California United Strikers.

Predicted LA Galaxy starting XI: Edwards, Williams, Zavaleta, Araujo, Delgado, Raveloson, Cabral, Costa, Álvarez, Chicharito; Bond
