Vancouver are now trailing the Seattle Sounders by only two points for that final position in the Western Conference. 

Los Angeles FC, on the other hand, have won four of their last five league games to move to 36 points and take a five point lead over second-placed Austin in the standings. Against FC Dallas, last Wednesday, the Black and Gold took the lead mid-way through the first half through Danny Musovski before Jesus Ferreira equalised for the visitors.
