Portland Timbers Form


Portland are closing in on the MLS playoffs thanks to a five-game unbeaten run that includes four wins.

The Timbers suffered a setback in August as they went on a five-game winless run.

They were able to stop the rot before the end of the month though, beating Seattle 2-1 at home, and that victory sparked an upturn in fortunes.

Portland won 2-1 at Austin before returning home for a 2-1 victory against Atlanta and 1-0 success against Minnesota.

The Timbers failed to make it five-in-a-row, but they did take a point from a 1-1 draw at Columbus.

Los Angeles FC Form


Los Angeles FC remain top of the Western Conference, but their form has tailed off with just two wins coming in their last seven games.

A seven-game win streak was ended by a 2-1 loss at San Jose, and that was followed by a 4-1 defeat at Austin.

Their losing skid then hit three games with a 2-1 loss at Houston, but they briefly halted their slump with a 2-0 victory at home to Real Salt Lake.

LAFC lost their next outing as they fell 2-1 at Dallas, and they then dropped another two points as they drew 1-1 at Minnesota.

They did make a return to winning ways in their final game before the international break though, beating Houston 3-1.
