Los Angeles F.C. are back in 2022 and back with a bang.

Last weekend, in their season opener, LAFC demolished Colorado Rapids 3-0 at Banc of California Stadium.

Carlos Vela, who else, bagging a hat-trick inside 50 minutes with the third goal a classic Vela finish, cutting in from the right to curl home majestically.

The Black and Gold lifted the Supporters’ Shield in 2019 but finished 12th a year later and then 17th last season, thereby missing the play-offs in the latter.

Nevertheless, under new manager Steve Cherundolo, they were on fire last weekend and are now looking to make it two wins out of two.

Portland Timbers meanwhile got all the way to MLS Cup last season but were denied at the last, losing a penalty shootout against NYCFC.

To start this season, Giovanni Savarese’s side were involved in the best game of the opening weekend as New England Revolution visited Oregon.

Dairon Asprilla made it 1-1 on the hour mark but, while the Timbers Army were still celebrating at one end, the Revs immediately retook the lead at the other.

Nevertheless, the points were ultimately shared because, towards the end, Yimmi Chará pulled off an outrageous overhead kick; an early goal of the season contender.

Now, Portland face another MLS Cup front-runner as the tough games keep on coming for them at the start of the season.

Who will win this blockbuster Sunday night clash in California?
