LAG vs PT Dream11 Prediction
LA Galaxy will be taking on Portland Timbers up next at the Dignity Health Sports Park, as MLS action rolls on. Portland Timbers have been in terrific form and are at the second spot in the Western Conference with 24 points, with seven wins, three draws and four defeats. Meanwhile, the LA Galaxy have been struggling in recent times, and are at the bottom of the table with just 15 points on board. They've managed to win four, draw three and lose seven games from 14 so far. It's been chalk and cheese when it comes to recent performances between the two clubs and LA Galaxy will have to be on their toes in order to surpass the danger that Portland has to offer. We can expect Portland Timbers to be on the front foot for the majority of the game, while, LA Galaxy could opt for a more pragmatic style of play. With that being said, here is the LAG vs PT Dream 11 Prediction for the game ahead.
