The Portland Timbers finally have their first win of the season after last Saturday's 3-2 win over D.C. United. Now the Timbers face off against the league's other team whose town is known by its initials, the L.A. Galaxy, as they try to continue to improve the performances after a lackluster start to the season.
Can the Timbers get another win? Will this be the Timbers' first shutout of the season? Who will be the next Timber to step his game up, after Diego Valeri's (pretty much) three assist game last weekend?
Let's get busy making some predictions.
Here is what we are looking for:
- The final score.
- The goalscorers.
- The timing of the goals.
The more specific the prediction, the better.
The rules: Get your predictions in before kick-off. Correctly predicting the score is worth two points, correctly predicting a goal scorer is worth one point, and coming close to the timing of a goal is worth one point. That's about it. I reserve the right to award bonus points for excessively awesome/accurate predictions.
Should you have gotten more points? Tell me about it in your prediction for this week.
