Portland Timbers Preview – Can the Timbers make it back-to-back wins?

Portland Timbers have made an indifferent start to their season, winning two and losing three of their opening five. The Timbers currently occupy ninth spot in the Western Conference table and 18th overall.

Portland kicked off the new MLS campaign with a 1-0 loss to Vancouver Whitecaps. However, they picked up their first win of the season with a much-needed 2-1 home victory over Houston on matchday two.

Our betting prediction:
LA Galaxy win & both teams to score

Giovanni Savarese’s side then crashed to back-to-back losses to Dallas and Seattle Sounders before returning to winning ways last weekend. Goals from Yimmi Chara and Marvin Loria were enough for a 2-0 win over San Jose Earthquakes at PayPal Park. Can they pick up three points on home soil this Saturday?

LA Galaxy Preview – Galaxy to move on to 15 points?

Greg Vanney’s LA Galaxy have started the season in fine fashion. Galaxy have picked up four wins from their opening five MLS matches to sit second behind Seattle in the table. Only the Sounders have scored more goals, too.

LA opened up with back-to-back 3-2 wins over Inter Miami and New York Red Bulls. They crashed to a 3-0 away defeat to in-form Seattle on matchday three but have struck back with successive wins. After a 2-1 home victory over rivals Los Angeles, Vanney’s troops beat Austin 2-0 at Dignity Health Sports Park last time out.
