Team News

L.A. Galaxy
Portland
  • Chicarito, Martin Caceres, and Gaston Brugman remain sidelined.
  • Jalen Neal and Calegari are both out for the season.
  • Douglas Costa is "day-to-day" with a tight hamstring.
  • Riqui Puig has an ankle sprain and it was really swelled. He's a major doubt.
  • Eryk Williamson, David Ayala, and Jaroslaw Niezgoda are all out for the season.
  • Aljaz Ivacic is suspended for three matches.
  • Diego Chara is out due to an appendectomy.
  • Evander is a doubt with a calf injury.
  • Yimmi Chara is also a doubt with a hamstring injury.

Prediction

  • The LA Galaxy just can't buy a break with injuries. Now star talisman Riqui Puig picked up a nasty sprained ankle and the Galaxy are six points out of the playoffs. Honestly, it just wasn't meant to be for this team this season.
  • Portland has had a roller coaster of a season and their current form is unbelievable. Four straight wins and six matches unbeaten, Portland are in the best form of all the teams in the league and will be a tough out come playoff time.
