Portland Timbers vs LA Galaxy
USA – MLS
Date: Sunday, 03 April 2022
Kick-off at 20:30 UK / 21:30 CET
Venue: Providence Park

Portland Timbers recorded an inconsistent start to this season. They opened up with all possible results, out of which a draw is the most recent display. As a result, they currently occupies 9th position of the table.

Portland Timbers were last seen playing a 1-1 draw against Orlando City at home in their most recent league fixture. With that draw, they are now on the back of two subsequent winless games in the league. They will be hoping to record a positive result in the coming fixture with the advantage of wearing home outfits.

Meanwhile, LA Galaxy had a decent start to this season but it’s not that impressive to say satisfying. They have won two and lost two of their opening four fixtures and possess an average offensive and defensive lineup.

LA Galaxy, after a strong start, shown disappointing dip in their form recording back to back defeats in the league. The past two losing fixtures caused a major problem to this side as they were seen leaking four goals over the course of those two losing games came after two consecutive clean sheet victories.

By the looks of things, either of these two outfits will be hoping to record a win from this MLS fixture at Providence Park on Sunday.
