Chivas USA hosts Portland Timbers

Chivas USA tonight


When: 7:30 p.m.

Where: Home Depot Center.


On the air: TV: Prime Ticket. Radio: 690

Records: Chivas 3-4-5; Portland 5-4-2.

Record vs. Portland: Timbers are an expansion team.

Update: A victory Saturday in Carson would double Chivas’ win output this season at the Home Depot Center. Despite being a man up for the final 23 minutes, Chivas could not take advantage in a 1-1 tie against Vancouver on Wednesday. This is the first regular-season MLS meeting between these clubs, though the expansion Timbers did beat Chivas, 2-0, in the U.S. Open Cup on March 29 at Portland. “Bright spots,” according to Chivas Coach Robin Fraser, included the return of two injured players, both coming in as subs in the second half Wednesday. Paulo Nagamura had been out with a calf injury, and Michael Lahoud had been sidelined after a concussion.
