The Galaxy face Portland in the U.S. Open Cup round of 16 on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. at Providence Park. The winner of the match hosts Seattle in the quarterfinals after the Sounders knocked off Real Salt Lake in a shootout on Tuesday.
The Galaxy and Timbers have not met in U.S. Open Cup play since 2011. L.A. has won the tournament twice, but hasn’t advanced past the quarterfinals since finishing second to the Chicago Fire in 2006.
The Galaxy’s only win since May 8 came in the U.S. Open Cup fourth round against amateur team La Maquina.
