Hey folks! Here's the gamethread for the Chivas USA-Portland Timbers match this evening. The game will start at 8 pm, and is available on Fox Prime Ticket for those in the LA area. I think this is a must-win game for the Goats, who desperately need three points in order to stay in the playoff hunt. They beat Portland 1-0 on June 4 at the Home Depot Center: can they get a season sweep against the Timbers? We'll find out soon.
