Gamethread: Chivas USA at Portland Timbers, 8/24/11

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.

If you haven't seen it yet, take a look at the three questions exchange on the match, as well as the match preview.

Chivas USA starting lineup: Dan Kennedy, Michael Lahoud, Michael Umana, Heath Pearce, Ante Jazic; Ben Zemanski, Marcos Mondaini, Nick LaBrocca, Paulo Nagamura, Laurent Courtois, Alejandro Moreno

 

Chivas bench: Zach Thornton, David Junior Lopes, Mariano Trujillo, Simon Elliott, Jorge Flores, Blair Gavin, Justin Braun

Portland Timbers starting lineup: Troy Perkins, Mike Chabala, Eric Brunner, David Horst, Lovel Palmer, Sal Zizzo, Kalif Alhassan, Jack Jewsbury, Diego Chara, Jorge Perlaza, Kenny Cooper
