Coming off last year's record-shattering campaign, LAFC looked primed to pick up where they left off through two weeks, getting a 1-0 home victory over expansion side Inter Miami CF in their season opener on March 1, before battling the Philadelphia Union to an epic 3-3 draw in Week 2. The reigning Supporters' Shield winners rightfully are considered strong candidates to make a deep run in the tournament.
The Dynamo got a 1-1 draw at home against the LA Galaxy in Week 1, but they'll be looking to wash away the bitter taste of their last result -- a 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Sporting Kansas City at Children's Mercy Park on March 7. It's a work in progress under new head coach Tab Ramos, but the Dynamo still boast a group of talented attackers highlighted by Alberth Elis, Mauro Manotas and Darwin Quintero that can give any team trouble.
