The Portland Timbers are back in action this weekend, and a day or two earlier than usual! Tonight, they’re heading to California for a matchup against the storied LA Galaxy. This Galaxy squad, however, is one that is struggling. They’ve been missing several key players as of late due to injury, including the one and only Chicharito. With the Mexican striker most likely out once again, the Timbers have a chance to earn some big points on the road.

Points on the road have been a rarity this season, as our very own Sam Svilar pointed out in his latest article. But the Timbers have dominated the last three matches against the Galaxy, winning by three goals in each of them. After three straight results that came down to the wire, wouldn’t it be nice if the Timbers just decided to win a game by multiple goals? I think so. Let’s see if they can do it tonight, Rose City.
