Portland Timbers vs LA Galaxy: Storylines
Portland Timbers have had a lot of trouble closing out games lately. They've conceded way too many late goals and it's pretty hard to win when you put yourself in that kind of situation. Thus far, they've allowed 14 goals per 12 goals scored.
Argentinean star Diego Valeri continues to lead the way for the Timbers with a couple of goals this season but couldn't avoid his team's loss in the derby to Seattle Sounders and that exciting 4-4 draw vs. Real Salt Lake.
LA Galaxy, on the other hand, are coming off back-to-back massive wins vs. their lifelong rivals San Jose Earthquakes and city neighbors LAFC. Guillermo Barros Schelotto's team is looking better than ever right now.
Cristian Pavón and Sebastian Lletget have scored a couple of goals apiece, and even though the team has conceded more goals than what they've scored (13 to 10), their defense has looked much better as of late.
