Los Angeles Galaxy vs Portland Timbers: Play-by-Analysis, Reaction and More

Bruce Arena’s Los Angeles Galaxy will look to complete a Pacific Northwest sweep when they take on the Portland Timbers at Jeld-Wen Field on Wednesday, Aug. 3 at 7:30 p.m. PT/10:30 p.m. ET.

David Beckham and Chris Birchall return from suspension to help bring in key reinforcements for Landon Donovan and the Galaxy, who are riding a 14-game unbeaten streak and sport a 12-2-9 record (45 points), good for the best record in Major League Soccer.

As for John Spencer’s Portland Timbers, a promising start has turned sour, leading to a 6-10-4 record (22 points), but they do possess one of the most intimidating crowd environments in Jeld-Wen Field, fueled by the ever-vocal Timbers Army.

A victory for the Galaxy will be an excellent setup to another important match this weekend at home against FC Dallas.
