Ultimately, we believe the overall quality of the Orange and Blue at every position, and their experience in close games, will enable them to keep their nerve in a match that is sure to be packed with pressure.

Los Angeles vs. Houston (Sunday, 2.30am)
The Black and Gold edged the Seattle Sounders 1-0 in the Western Conference semi-finals to advance to this stage, while Orange Crush defeated Sporting Kansas City by that same score and will play in the conference finals for the first time since 2017.
We say: Los Angeles FC 1-0 Houston Dynamo
The quality of an in-form Bouanga, along with the top-class goalkeeping of Crepeau, could be what separates these two evenly matched sides.
As strong as Houston are in the middle of the field, they do not have anyone in the attacking third with the finishing ability of a Bouanga.
