As the Portland Timbers wrap up their match against FC Dallas (find the match thread for that here), their loaned out players down south with Sacramento Republic FC will be taking on LA Galaxy II in the Republic's first match of the USL Pro season. Jake Gleeson and Aaron Long have been regular contributors for the Republic throughout the preseason and Bryan Gallego could make an appearance as well, despite not yet featuring regularly for the side.
The Timbers' reserves, sent on loan to build the game experience they will need to someday break into the game day 18, will line up against their opposite number from the San Jose Earthquakes (actually just Mike Fucito) as well as former Timbers Rodrigo Lopez
and Freddy Braun for the Republic's first match since joining the USL.
