The LA Galaxy are set to kick off against the Portland Timbers at 11:30am Pacific on NBC Sports, an important road match as the Galaxy look to get some points out of a road fixture filled month of May. The lineups have been announced and the players are warming up, so let's take a look at the starting XI:
LA Galaxy Subs: Rowe, Samuel, Zardes, Rogers, Meyer, Walker, Mendiola
The big story on the bench is LA Galaxy homegrown player and LA Galaxy II star Raul Mendiola making the eighteen. He's a big talent coming up the ranks and one to watch out for. Robbie Rogers makes the eighteen again as he tries to come back from injury.
Timbers XI vs. LA: Ricketts, Jewsbury, Danso, Kah, Harrington, Chara, Valeri, Johnson ©, Nagbe, Fernández, Zakuani
Old friend Donovan Ricketts is in goal for the Timbers as always.
Timbers subs vs. LA: Weber, Paparatto, Powell, Alhassan, Nanchoff, Zemanski, Urruti.
