While in the Los Angeles squad, along with the Guadalajara-born, who played the 90 minutes, were present Efraín Álvarez, who only played the first half, and Jonathan dos Santos, replaced in the 80 '; at the venue there was another Mexican on the court, like Josecarlos Van Rankin, who was there for the entire match.

But in a day where everyone expected a new scoring performance from Chicharito, who finally showed a better scoring nose was the Chilean Mora, and it was not one, but twice to help a categorical victory in Portland. The play that changed the game occurred in the 44th minute, when Los Angeles Galaxy defender Derrick Williams received a direct red card for a blow that injured Peruvian Andy Polo, which forced him to leave the game, being replaced by the former Pumas.

In the second half, the Timbers exploited a successful combination, such as the appearance of Van Rankin on the right and the center at the head of Mora, thus the first goal came at 47 '; and the second was a shot from the Mexican who hit the horizontal, and that in the second instance was changed for a goal by the Andean (59').

The third and final goal was for a foul in the area against the Aztec defender, who was converted by Argentine Diego Valeri (69 '), which left his team in sixth place in the Western Conference with nine points, while Chicharito's team remains in second place, with 12 units.
