The Galaxy are 1-3 (three points) and are in the cellar of the Western Conference.
A victory on Saturday at Victoria Street will work wonders for their chances at rediscovering their form from last year.
However, Portland are also struggling to get results, and a win for the Timbers will be just what the fans in Oregon need.
