LIVE - LA Galaxy-Portland Timbers with TransferMarketWeb
TransferMarketWeb will make its debut tonight at the Dignity Health Sports Park Stadium in Carson (California) to follow the MLS game between the LA Galaxy and Portland Timbers. Galaxy are in the third position of the Western Conference butbthey are coming from a bad loss suffered in Dallas with wonderkid Pepi scoring 3 of the 4 goals. Portland in 8th in the same Conference and they are looking for some points to make the playoff. Attendance for the game was 15644.
GAME OVER!!!! LA Galaxy win 4-1 in a really fun game to follow with many goals, a lot of chances to score and really no tacticism.
90': Kljestan leaving the field for Perez. The game is ending and Galaxy get the 3 points that keep them on the third place of the Western Conference. Portland could have used better the chance they had at the beginning of the game but Galaxy deserved to win the game. Les's repeat ourselves: Araujo was an absolute demon on the right side and Portland didn't have aby cure against him. Cabral is showing a lot of talent but he still misses too many chances and not every night you are allowed to score 4 goals.
84': another yellow card for a Timbers player: this time is Diego Chara'
78': Cabral missing the 5-1. Unbelievable!! He had just to touch the ball in and instead his shot has been saved by the goalie.
77': the MVP of the game Arujo has been subbed by Coulibaly: all the stadium clapping their hands for the young full back.
75': first yellow card of the game with Portland's Van Ronkin being booked. Portland still chasing the second goal but not lucky on a header who ends his the hands of Bond.
67': first substitution for the home team with Dunbar replacing Grandsir, who had tonight a really positive game.
65': Portland trying to score the goal to reopen the game but Galaxy is really dangerous with every counter attack. Really a fun game to attend.
59': Portland make 4 subs at the same moment. Coming back from 4-1 tonight looks really hard.
56': GOOOOOAAAAALLLLLLLLLL!!!!! Araujo is definitely unstoppable on the right side tonight and Portland left back will have nightmare tonight. Another perfect cross and Grandsit cannot miss the 4-1.
52': Penalty kick for Galaxy. The goalie fouled Cabral who was not able to shot faster but on the bouncing ball he was fouled. 3-1!!!!!!!! Kljestan doesn't miss and Galaxy are up by 2 goals.
49': Vazquez with a nice chance to shot inside of the box but the shot is too high. Galazy started the second half as they finished the first and they are looking for the third goal.
46': Second Half is on its way and no subs so far.
45': Cabral was able to find the back of the net but he was offside. First Half is over. Portland began with more energy but slowly Galaxy took over the game and they are up 2-1 with some merit. Timbers are always dangeorus when they are able to verticlaize fast and Galaxy look weak on the back line and definitely this game has still some goals in it. Araujo is by far the best player on the pitch and constantly keep the Timbers' denfese on the back of their heel.
33': GOOOOOAAAAALLLLLLLLLL!!!! Araujo is devastating the Portland defense: first he served Cabral in front of the keeper and the striker missed, then a perfect cross for Vazquez and with a header Galaxy are up 2-1.
32': Galaxy need to do something to fix the back line because everytime Portland attack they are dangerous.
29': GOOOOOAAAAALLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!! Ebobisse ties the game immediately with a shot from the penalty kick. Galaxy were still celebrating the goal. And immediately after an amazing save by Bond still on Ebobisse. What a game!!!
27': GOOOOOAAAAALLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!! RAVELOSON!!!!!! An amazing goal!!!!! A bicycle after a corner kick and LA Galaxy is up 1-0
22': finally Galaxy getting some momentum thank to Grandsir who is moving from left to right and with individual play is trying to create something.
20': Galaxy unable to bring any dangerous attack. Basically the most dangerous player for Galaxy has been Julian Araujo so far. When they need to defend Portland stay really low and tight.Galaxy trying to move the ball from left to right and viceversa but unable to find any attacking space.At the 18th minute another time Portland got the chance to score but the striker didn't find the time to shot.
11' Fochive with a great chance but his shot went high on the crossbar. He was by himself just inside of the goal area. Portland dangerous another time.
10': first ten minutes of the game with Galaxy trying to control the game but Portland more dangerous specially they counter attack fast going vertical on the forward. Home team not really sharp and missing many passes even on the back-line but Portland not able to capitalize yet. Galaxy defending with a line of 4 but when they attack they pass on 3 on defense with Raveloson dropping back.
1' immediately a great chance for Portland with Ebobisse in front of Galaxy goalie but he doesn't control well and shoot on the body of the keeper.
