It's never a bad thing when there's good news on a day you're not in action. That could be the case for LAFC on Wednesday night.
Eight MLS sides square off in midweek matches. LAFC will have an eye on one match in particular.
Minnesota United travel to face the Houston Dynamo at 5:30pm PT (Streaming on ESPN+). Sitting atop the Western Conference with 63 points, LAFC could secure the No. 1 seed in the conference, and home-field advantage up to MLS Cup, if the Loons fail to win in Houston.
Here's the full scenario:
LAFC secures the top spot in the Western Conference if...
Minnesota draw OR lose in Houston
In addition to home-field advantage up until the MLS Cup, the West's top spot also secures a spot in next season's Concacaf Champions League.
