The LA Galaxy could not beat the Portland Timbers this Saturday, September 30 at the Digital Health Sports Park. Continuing with its MLS regular season commitments, the Los Angeles club sought to obtain a victory at any cost to add 3 points.
Seeking to keep their hopes alive to qualify for the playoffs, the Galaxy intended to overcome the Timbers who were coming off a very positive streak. In the end, the script of the match was very similar to that of recent confrontations. A LA Galaxy capable of reacting to adverse moments, but unable to seal a victory.
At 38', after a good team play by the Timbers, the ball bounced off Eriq Zavaleta and entered the Galaxy goal. The Salvadoran center-back went from hero to villain after scoring the LA Galaxy's first goal.
