The LA Galaxy are hoping their break allowed them to get healthier as they return from a Week 4 bye to meet the Portland Timbers in the final match of Week 5. 

The Galaxy (2-1-0) were without injured Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Romain Alessandrini, but still managed to defeat Minnesota United, 3-2, on March 16, while the Timbers (0-2-1) are hoping to shore up a leaky defense that has conceded 10 goals already.
