Our prediction for this MLS match:
Thanks to a thrilling 6-2 win over their local rivals LA Galaxy, Los Angeles FC revived their last 16 hopes. Los Angeles impressed in the local derby, with talented attacker Diego Rossi scoring four goals. Bob Bradley’s troops are obviously capable of producing excellent displays without Carlos Vela in the starting XI, and seeing that new signing Bradley Wright-Phillips has found his goal-scoring touch, it is no surprise the Black and Gold are seen as favourites to win Friday’s football match against Portland Timbers.
Portland aim to keep their 100% record at MLS is back tournament intact, but given Los Angeles’ display in the local derby, we predict that Bob Bradley’s men are going to finish the process in top position in Group F. In their last meeting in MLS Los Angeles FC recorded a 3-2 win over Portland Timbers.
