The Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC) prepares to host the Portland Timbers (0-0-1; 1 point) on Sunday afternoon at Banc of California Stadium in the first of two regular season meetings against the reigning Western Conference champions.

Kickoff on Sunday is slated for 4:30 p.m. PT and will be broadcast live on FS1, ESPN 710 AM and 980 AM 'La Mera Mera.'

In Week 1, LAFC (1-0-0; 3 points) edged Sporting KC 2-1 in the Club's home opener, while the Timbers battled to a 3-3 road draw against the Colorado Rapids in what marked the coldest game in MLS history.
