Our prediction for this MLS match:
Portland Timbers and Los Angeles Galaxy square off against each other at Providence Park in what is expected to be a very exciting game. Portland Timbers dropped two points in a 4-4 draw with Real Salt Lake as the visitors scored two goals in the dying minutes of the match. Giovanni Savarese’s men aim to put an end to their three-game winless run in the Major League Soccer, but beating the in-form visitors is easier said than done.
LA Galaxy have been showing signs of improvement of late, with the team outplaying Los Angeles FC and San Jose Earthquakes in the previous two league fixtures. Guillermo Schelotto’s men regained a much-needed confidence, and we predict that they will take advantage of Portland’s shaky defence in the midweek clash. Mexico international Javier Hernandez Chicharito is unlikely to recover in time to face the Timbers.
