The hottest team in MLS can get one step closer to a playoff spot on Saturday as the Portland Timbers go to California for a date with him Galaxy of Los Angeles at the Dignity Health Tennis Center.

Portland has been unbeaten for eight games in a row, while LA barely holds a post-season spot, currently sixth but only two points ahead of the Vancouver Whitecaps, which are eighth.


Prediction for this match

While Portland appears to be going into the playoffs, the postseason is far from a guarantee for the first time since 2019 Greg Vanney and the galaxy.

Last weekend they fought their way back after an early 0-1 deficit, but afterwards couldn’t develop many good chances and only fired a single shot on goal despite 64% possession.

Without a win in nine consecutive games, this team needs some motivation from somewhere as their comfortable position in the Western Conference has changed dramatically since mid-August.

LA has been cooling off at home lately and has remained without a win in the last five competitions at the Dignity Health Tennis Center, having failed to win just three of its last 12 home games before that stretch.

They ended a three-game losing streak against Portland earlier this year with a 4-1 win over them in late July, but that team has only won one league game since then and has only scored multiple goals once in their last nine games.

With only six games left, the next week could mark their season as they continue that game with two games against non-playoff teams (Dallas and Houston Dynamo) before heading into the year with a challenging schedule against Sporting Kansas. wrapping up City and the Seattle Sounders on the street, wrapping up things with the Minnesota United hosts who are just one point behind them right now.

Given their consistent shape lately, Giovanni Savarese probably wishes that the international break could have come at a different time as his Timbers show they are an impressive team that will be hard to beat.

The MLS is Back tournament winners a season ago were good in every way, especially in the final third with at least one goal in 18 consecutive games, the longest running streak in the league.

They have scored the first goal in seven of their last eight games so it should come as no surprise that they have scored points in each of those games as they are on the first goal at 13-1-1 this year.

This club has won four away games in a row, the first time in the club’s history.

Their latest hot run gave them plenty of room to breathe in the Western Conference standings and currently holds a nine-point cushion over Vancouver.

The Timbers have gone from being a team fighting for a place in the postseason to being one of the teams to beat.
