Austin FC is ranked at No. 21 in the MLS's latest power rankings.

A group of 13 MLS writers compiled a list of who ranks best—or worst—in the league on Tuesday, putting new club Austin FC at 21st out of 27 ahead of their first match on Saturday.

Their next opponent, LAFC, was ranked No. 2. The San Jose Earthquakes, who ATXFC will see in their home opener on Saturday, June 19, are ranked 16th.

The club may be low on the list, but it's to be expected for an expansion team. Austin FC is still ranked above six other teams, including rival Texas club Houston Dynamo.

Austin FC will put their underdog team to the test on Saturday as they head to No. 2 LAFC.
