After a thrilling 2-1 win over Sporting Kansas City that had the 3252 jumping, LAFC remain home Sunday and welcome another Western Conference powerhouse to the Banc as part of the Portland Timbers' season-opening 12-game road trip.

While Adama Diomande provided the late fireworks for LAFC in Week 1, the Timbers conceded a stoppage-time equalizer and squandered a pair of leads to settle for a 3-3 draw against the Colorado Rapids at snowy Dick's Sporting Goods Park.
