The LA Galaxy will host the Portland Timbers this Saturday, September 30 at the Digital Health Sports Park, in another match of the MLS Regular Season. After 'rescuing' a 3-3 draw against Austin in their last game, the Galacticos face the Timbers in an enviable state of mind.

In our traditional previous article with information such as where to watch the game, and predicted lineup, among other things, we share our prediction for this LA Galaxy vs. Portland Timbers.

In this text, we will delve a little deeper into the reason for this prediction... Well, let's start with the main thing. From The View From Avalon, we are predicting a 3-2 result in favor of the LA Galaxy. Despite the good moments that the Oregon team is going through, we see the scenario in which LA seals a victory at home as quite feasible.

The LA Galaxy has been shown to have an almost unique capacity for reaction and resilience. A characteristic worthy of the greatest team in the history of the competition. In any case, we have to focus on the current situation, and the Galaxy's current situation is not the sweetest.

Although there is this feeling of "not knowing how to lose" on the part of LA, it is true that the defensive difficulties are more than evident, and if the Galacticos do not pay special attention to the defensive setbacks and counterattacks of the rival, there will constantly be a feeling of danger, and that is why we believe we can concede more than one goal.

So far there is no confirmation as to whether Riqui Puig and Douglas Costa will start, but their presence, or absence, will be decisive for the development of the match.
