LAFC vs Portland Timbers Highlights
Mark-Anthony Kaye opened the scoring in the 14th minute with a header after an incredible save from Jeff Attinella forced a Rossi shot out for a corner. Portland soon evened things when Jeremy Ebobisse put his face on the line for a diving header goal off a free kick service.
It was all LAFC after that.
Just before the half, LAFC took the lead when Christian Ramirez crashed the box to slide one home. Then Diamonde put a little more distance between the clubs early in the second half with an easy tap in. And Carlos Vela opened his account for the season with a smooth back post finish after finding himself all alone in the box.
LAFC travels east to face New York City FC next Sunday for their first away match of the season.
