Our prediction for this MLS match:
Portland Timbers will be looking to climb to top position in the standings when they welcome Los Angeles Galaxy at Providence Park. Giovanni Savarese’s troops aim to put an end to their three-game winless run in the Major League Soccer, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at LA Galaxy. Portland did well to share the spoils with Seattle Sounders in their last league match, and they are surely capable of beating LA Galaxy, who are low on confidence following the loss in the local derby.
The visitors failed to impress in the 2-0 defeat to Los Angeles FC, and seeing that experienced defender Geancarlo Gonzales is sidelined through suspension, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. In their last meeting in the MLS Portland recorded a thrilling 6-3 win over LA Galaxy, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered.
