The Portland Timbers continue their two game road trip today as they visit Carson, California to take on Chivas USA. Both teams are looking to turn their respective seasons around and both have won recently after long dry spells early in the season.
Here is all the information that you need for today's match:
Match Preview: "The Timbers are in the middle of a series of three games in eight days and, according to Caleb Porter, could look to change up their lineup in order to keep the team fresh ahead of Sunday's Cascadia Cup match against the Vancouver Whitecaps, back here in Portland"
Preview Interview: "Chivas USA simply don't have a good defense. Ok, perhaps that's a tad harsh to the defense, as injuries have disrupted them, they're playing a midfielder, Eric Avila, at right back (who's admittedly their most consistent defender so far), and they have what has to be the slowest center back pairing in MLS. They're probably well aware of their limitations, and to be fair, have performed quite well in some games, including the first meeting against Portland, this year."
