Our prediction for this MLS match:
Monday’s football game at Providence Park pits together Portland Timbers and Los Angeles FC, the two teams who are eyeing top position in the Western Conference. Portland aim to overtake Seattle in the top position in the standings, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Los Angeles. It has to be noted that the likes of Asprilla, Blanco, Bodily, and Cascante are all likely to miss the game through injury for the hosts.
Los Angeles, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Vancouver Whitecaps, but they will have to do it without injured star Carlos Vela. The good news for the visitors, though, is that Diego Rossi, Brian Rodriguez, Diego Palacios, and Jose Cifuentes should return from international duty. Anyhow, given the attacking potential of the two title-chasing sides, both teams to score betting option should be considered.
