MATCH PREVIEW

MAIN PREDICTION: DRAW

 

The Portland Timbers played to a 1-1 home league draw with Orlando City in midweek and then handed the Seattle Sounders their first home league defeat of the year with a 2-1 result in a feisty affair. Brian Fernandez was the man of the match with goals in the 20th and 51st minutes for Portland while Seattle replied in the 50th minute. The Timbers are now unbeaten in the last five league outings with three wins and a pair of draws. They have 28 points from 20 league games with an even mark of eight wins, four draws and eight losses with 31 goals for and 32 against. The team is ninth in the West but is just two points behind the seventh and final playoff spot.

 

The LA Galaxy earned three huge points in the Western Conference playoff race with an impressive 3-2 home win over league-leading Los Angeles FC in the El Trafico derby last weekend. Who else but man of the match Zlatan Ibrahimovic was the scoring hero as he scored a hat-trick with goals in the eighth, 56th and 70th minutes. He now has 16 goals in the league in 2019. The win gives the Galaxy 37 league points this year and a bit of breathing room when it comes to a playoff spot. 

 

The LA Galaxy has registered some encouraging results of late while the Portland Timbers have won just twice in five home league matches (two draws, one loss). I can see this match ending in a draw.  

 

SECOND PREDICTION: FIRST TEAM TO SCORE – PORTLAND TIMBERS

 

The Portland Timbers have started relatively strong at home by striking first in three of five league games and I think the momentum of their league win in Seattle last time out will carry over into this game. I expect them to open the scoring once again.   

 

HEAD TO HEAD

 

The LA Galaxy won 2-1 at home in the league in April. Each side has two wins, two defeats and a draw in the last five showdowns in league action.

 

Portland Timbers VS LA Galaxy

Handicap Pick:  LA Galaxy +1
