Timbers to Face Los Angeles FC in Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup Quarterfinal on July 10
PORTLAND, Ore. - The Portland Timbers will face Los Angeles FC at Banc of California Stadium in the quarterfinal of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup on Wednesday, July 10, it was determined after LAFC defeated the San Jose Earthquakes 3-1 at home in the Round of 16 on Thursday night. The Timbers' second road match of their 2019 U.S. Open Cup campaign will begin at 7:30 p.m. (Pacific).
The Timbers advanced to the quarterfinal for a second consecutive season and the fourth time in club history (2013, 2014, 2018, 2019), following a 4-0 victory over the LA Galaxy at Providence Park in their Round of 16 match on June 19. Brian Fernandez finished the match with a goal and an assist, while Sebastián Blanco and Jorge Moreira each tallied goals for Portland. Since 2013, Portland has nine victories over MLS teams in U.S. Open Cup play, which is tied for second-most during that span. Additionally, the win was also the largest shutout victory the club has ever had in the competition.
The July 10 contest will be the third meeting between Portland and LAFC across all competitions this season, and marks the second time the two teams meet in the U.S. Open Cup. In last season's U.S. Open Cup quarterfinal matchup, the Timbers fell 3-2 to LAFC at Banc of California Stadium on July 18, 2018.
