Portland are coming into this match after a 1-2 loss on the road against Real Salt Lake that put an end to their winning streak. They will look to return to winning ways but they will have a tricky task, as they will play host to LAFC. LAFC are also coming off a similar loss and they have not fared well on the road this season.

Portland (9-5-3) were terrible in the first half of their away match against Real Salt Lake. They conceded two early goals by the 26th minute but did wake up in the second half. They scored a goal at the 77th minute but were unable to avoid the loss. They had won each of their previous five matches, while also keeping three clean sheets in the process. Portland are sitting at the 2nd spot of the Western Conference with 30 points, scoring 37 goals and conceding 29. They have a 4-3-1 record at home, winning their last two there with clean sheets. However, they conceded 10 goals in their previous three home matches.

LAFC (7-7-3) are coming off a 1-2 loss on the road against Vancouver. They conceded two goals by the hour mark and were terrible on the offense with just one shot on target in the entire match. They have been really unstable lately but have won three of their last five (3-2-0). LAFC are sitting 4th in the Western Conference with 24 points, scoring 39 goals and conceding 33. They have the worst away record in the Conference (1-5-0), scoring just 5 and conceding 15 goals so far. They have lost five of their last six, conceding at least three goals in four of those losses. All six away matches have featured three goals or more so far.

Free Soccer Pick:

Over 3.25 Goals (-106)

The two teams have already met twice so far in the season, both in LA, where LAFC won by 2-4 after a 2-2 draw. Last season LAFC won both matches against Portland, by 3-2 in this venue after a 1-4 at home. There have been at least four goals in each of the last four MLS matches between the two and I am taking the Over 3.25 Goals here.
