Team News

L.A. Galaxy
  • Omar Gonzalez is still on international duty with the USA national team as they prepare to face Honduras, meaning A.J DeLaGarza will partner Tommy Meyer in central defence.
  • Robbie Keane returns from international duty with the Republic of Ireland and is expected to form part of a front three with Landon Donovan and Jose Villarreal.
  • Coach Caleb Porter is expected to start Ryan Johnson in attack rather than Frederic Piquionne, after the Timbers forward impressed in the win against FC Dallas on Saturday, coming on as a second-half substitute.
  • Futty Danso was withdrawn injured in the win over FC Dallas and replaced by Andrew Jean-Baptiste, who is expected to start alongside Pa Kah in central defence against the LA Galaxy.


  • The international break has hit the LA Galaxy hard, suffering a 5-0 defeat to the New England Revolution and a 3-1 defeat to Real Salt Lake in their last two league outings. But with Robbie Keane back in Bruce Arena's matchday roster, the MLS champions will be hoping to get their swagger back against an in-form Portland Timbers side.
  • With Omar Gonzalez still on international duty with the USA national team, the LA Galaxy are missing their most pivotal defensive figure as they face up against a team that has failed to score in MLS only once this season, giving the Portland Timbers something to exploit in Carson.
  • The Portland Timbers have made Jeld-Wen Field something of a fortress this season, emphasising that point with an impressive 1-0 win over FC Dallas on Saturday. However, their away form isn't too bad either and in fact the Timbers haven't lost on the road in the league all season. With Keane returning from international duty for the Galaxy, that form will be tested.
