The Portland Timbers play their second home match in four days. The Timbers hosted the Colorado Rapids after a five-match road stint and drew 2-2 despite being down a player for the entire second half. Today they host LAFC, who sit just outside of the playoff positions in eighth place with 33 points. Portland sit in sixth place with 34 points. The Timbers could further solidify their place in the playoff positions with a win over LAFC in Providence Park.
