Talk about two teams going in different directions. In 2021, Sporting KC were an uncalled handball away from first place and had an easy path to homefield advantage (that they blew) throughout the MLS Cup Playoffs. Los Angeles FC were sitting at home not even taking part.
So far in 2022, LAFC are on top of the Western Conference with 13 points through six games and 14 goals to their names. Sporting KC have played seven games but have only six points and five goals. Plus, they are all the way down in 12th. Obviously it’s early, but there are signs to be concerned about.
