Benfica have scored five goals in this competition other side Milan couldn’t respond to Leon Goretzka’s goal in first-half stoppage time when going down to Bayern, who also had a couple of strikes ruled out late on in the second period.

Major League Soccer’s All-Star Game is next week, but before the league’s best travel to Orlando, a handful of the biggest names they have to offer will be on display in Portland. The Timbers host the LA Galaxy on Saturday night in an intriguing Western Conference battle of teams hoping to put themselves in a position to win the MLS Cup. With both teams coming off huge wins against their respective rivals, it should make for a very interesting matchup in the Pacific Northwest.

It hasn’t been the greatest of seasons for the Portland Timbers so far, but they are coming on strong as of late thanks to one brilliant signing. Brian Fernandez has been a revelation for Gio Savarese’s side. The former Necaxa forward has notched eight goals in just seven starts so far, catapulting himself into the team lead in goals. Since Fernandez’s arrival, the Timbers have turned their season around, going unbeaten in their last five matches. Despite the turnaround, they still find themselves two points below the playoff line.

When talking about superstars in MLS, the conversation has to begin with the LA Galaxy’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The world-renowned striker has not disappointed one bit since arriving in the United States a season and a half ago. The outlandish Swede has banged in 16 goals so far this season, good enough for second-best in the league. Zlatan’s hat trick against crosstown rival and MLS leader LAFC solidified the Galaxy’s place in second and have them in a great position heading into the All-Star break.

Cristhian Paredes and Diego Valeri electrified the 150th consecutive sellout crowd at Providence Park with late first-half goals, and the host Portland Timbers rolled to a 4-0 win over the LA Galaxy on Saturday night.

Paredes ended the night with two goals, his second one coming in the 81st minute. The frustrations of the night boiled over for the Galaxy in the 84th minute, when youngster Efrain Alvarez was sent off with a red card for blasting the Timbers’ Marvin Loria in the back with a kicked ball while Loria was on the ground.

Down to 10 players, the Galaxy had no one to defend Portland’s Jeremy Ebobisse when Jorge Villafana’s cross found him for a header into the net in the 88th minute to cap off the Timbers’ win. Villafana also assisted on Paredes’ second tally.

Portland (9-8-4) is unbeaten in six straight games (4-0-2) and moved into a tie for the seventh and final playoff spot in the Western Conference. The Timbers have played one fewer game than Real Salt Lake, who sit on 31 points as well.

The Galaxy (12-9-1, 37 points) missed a chance to move into second place in the West. They are 3-4 in their last seven games.Timbers goalkeeper Steve Clark had six saves in a shutout, including one against Galaxy star Zlatan Ibrahimovic with Portland ahead 1-0 in the first half.

Ibrahimovic, the Galaxy’s leading scorer with 16 goals, took five shots, putting three on net. Clark came up big again in the 75th minute when he sent away a point blank shot from Uriel Antuna off Ibrahimovic’s cross.

Paredes put in Jorge Moreira’s cross in the 37th minute via header, though replays showed the ball appeared to hit closer to his shoulder. Then Valeri crossed up Galaxy defender Daniel Steres with a nutmeg for a shot that found the net in the 41st minute.

Valeri, the Timbers’ captain, raised his total to six goals on the season and also had an assist.

The Timbers were without starting midfielder Diego Chara due to yellow-card accumulation, and have played just six home matches due to a remodel of their stadium that lasted until June, compared to 15 away games.

Chelsea vs Reading Reddit Stream: Chelsea have returned to the UK after their successful pre-season tour of Reading vs Chelsea Reddit and TV channel. Chelsea vs Reading Reddit Stream Royals take on the Premier League giants on Sunday afternoon. Share. Comments. By. Oliver Scott

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard will be hoping his team take another step forward in pre-season on Sunday, when they face Reading in a friendly encounter.

The Blues have had a mixed set of results this summer, although they performed well in their most recent outing, getting the better of Barcelona. Tammy Abraham and Ross Barkley were on the scoresheet in a 2-1 win for Chelsea in at the Saitama Stadium in Japan.

With the team back on home soil, Lampard will surely ramp up preparations ahead of the new campaign. After this fixture, Chelsea have games against Bundesliga outfits Borussia Monchengladbach and RB Leipzig before their Premier League opener against Manchester United on August 11.

Date: Sunday, July 28

Time: 3 p.m. (BST), 10 a.m. (ET)

Preview

For Lampard, it’s been a full-on introduction to managing Chelsea because he’s had to take his team on a high-profile pre-season tour.

Against Barcelona, there were signs the team had benefitted from the work being done on the training pitch, as the Blues were more than a match for their illustrious opponents. The extra energy and sharpness Chelsea had saw them on top in the contest for long spells.

Here is what the new Chelsea boss had to say about the winning display in Japan:

‘I’m pleased with the attitude and spirit in the group and it’s something we’re going to build on.’ 💪

Abraham would have also been delighted to have grabbed a goal as he seeks to establish himself as part of the first-team setup at Stamford Bridge this season.

Per Football Whispers, he’s been handed the No. 9 jersey at Chelsea, a shirt that has weighed down a number of its predecessors:

Lampard has also made stylistic tweaks to predecessor Maurizio Sarri’s blueprint.

The Italian exclusively played a 4-3-3 system, with Jorginho operating as a deep-lying playmaker at the base of the midfield trio. In pre-season, Lampard has favoured a 4-2-3-1 and showcased more flexibility in the way he wants the team to play.

Against Barcelona, Jorginho shifted into one of the two holding-midfield positions alongside Mateo Kovacic. Chelsea broadcaster Alex Goldberg thinks the formation is a better fit for a number of the club’s midfielders: ea have returned to the UK after their successful pre-season tour of Japan to face Reading at the Madejski Stadium on Sunday.

Blues coach Frank Lampard will be impressed with what he saw as his side beat Barcelona 2-1 in Saitama, with Tammy Abraham and Ross Barkley both getting on the scoresheet against the Catalans.

With the Premier League season less than two weeks away, it’s time for the 41-year-old to test out his favoured starting XI ahead of their opener against Manchester United on August 11.

Lampard will be without key midfielder N’Golo Kante as the Frenchman recovers from a knee injury, while Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ruben Loftus-Cheek remain sidelined with Achilles injuries.

Reading will provide a stern test as they prepare for another season in the Championship guided by Portuguese manager Jose Gomes.

Reading team news: Emerging unscathed from season-long relegation battle last year, a season started under former Chelsea assistant Paul Clement but finished with José Gomes, Reading will certainly he hoping for a better time of things this season.

Veteran signings Charlie Adam and Michael Morrison should add some quality into the squad, while they also welcome back Matt Miazga on loan, though it’s unclear if he’ll be ready to play in the friendly. Former Chelsea prospects Sam Walker, goalkeeper, and John Swift, midfielder, will undoubtedly be looking forward to this big test.

“It’ll be a tough game [but] it’s always good to go up against a top opposition like Chelsea. You want to get the best out of your last pre-season game. You obviously want to win, but Chelsea are a top team so you want to go into that game and give everything you can […]’

“It’ll be my first time playing against them! A game is a game at the end of the day. I’ve been away from Chelsea for years now so it’ll just be good to come up against the opposition that they have and to see what I can do really, just try and do my best.

-John Swift; source: Reading FC

Chelsea team news: The Blues remain without the injured quintet of N’Golo Kanté, Antonion Rüdiger, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Callum Hudson-Odoi, and Willian — though at least Kanté’s expected back before the season starts. Otherwise, it’s full steam ahead for the squad, which will still need to be reduced by a handful of players in the final month of the European transfer window (which still runs through the end of August).

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard will be hoping his team take another step forward in pre-season on Sunday, when they face Reading in a friendly encounter.

The Blues have had a mixed set of results this summer, although they performed well in their most recent outing, getting the better of Barcelona. Tammy Abraham and Ross Barkley were on the scoresheet in a 2-1 win for Chelsea in at the Saitama Stadium in Japan.

With the team back on home soil, Lampard will surely ramp up preparations ahead of the new campaign. After this fixture, Chelsea have games against Bundesliga outfits Borussia Monchengladbach and RB Leipzig before their Premier League opener against Manchester United on August 11.

Preview

For Lampard, it’s been a full-on introduction to managing Chelsea because he’s had to take his team on a high-profile pre-season tour.

Against Barcelona, there were signs the team had benefitted from the work being done on the training pitch, as the Blues were more than a match for their illustrious opponents. The extra energy and sharpness Chelsea had saw them on top in the contest for long spells.

Here is what the new Chelsea boss had to say about the winning display in Japan:

Chelsea FC

@ChelseaFC
‘I’m pleased with the attitude and spirit in the group and it’s something we’re going to build on.’ 💪

Abraham would have also been delighted to have grabbed a goal as he seeks to establish himself as part of the first-team setup at Stamford Bridge this season.

Per Football Whispers, he’s been handed the No. 9 jersey at Chelsea, a shirt that has weighed down a number of its predecessors:

Lampard has also made stylistic tweaks to predecessor Maurizio Sarri’s blueprint.

The Italian exclusively played a 4-3-3 system, with Jorginho operating as a deep-lying playmaker at the base of the midfield trio. In pre-season, Lampard has favoured a 4-2-3-1 and showcased more flexibility in the way he wants the team to play.

Against Barcelona, Jorginho shifted into one of the two holding-midfield positions alongside Mateo Kovacic. Chelsea broadcaster Alex Goldberg thinks the formation is a better fit for a number of the club’s midfielders: ea have returned to the UK after their successful pre-season tour of Japan to face Reading at the Madejski Stadium on Sunday.

Blues coach Frank Lampard will be impressed with what he saw as his side beat Barcelona 2-1 in Saitama, with Tammy Abraham and Ross Barkley both getting on the scoresheet against the Catalans.

With the Premier League season less than two weeks away, it’s time for the 41-year-old to test out his favoured starting XI ahead of their opener against Manchester United on August 11.

Lampard will be without key midfielder N’Golo Kante as the Frenchman recovers from a knee injury, while Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ruben Loftus-Cheek remain sidelined with Achilles injuries.

Reading will provide a stern test as they prepare for another season in the Championship guided by Portuguese manager Jose Gomes.

Here’s how you can follow Sunday’s action…

TV channel and live stream information
Reading vs Chelsea will be shown live on Chelsea TV in the UK, with kick-off scheduled for 3pm BST on Sunday afternoon.

As Chelsea TV is no longer available to viewers with a Sky subscription, you can only watch the game on Chelsea’s official website or via the club’s app, The 5th Stand.

Standard Sport will have full coverage of the match and you can follow by tuning into our dedicated live blog.

After a brief break following a trip halfway across the globe, Chelsea resume preseason with a short trip down the M4 to the Madejski, last visited in early 2013. This will be Chelsea’s fifth of seven friendlies this summer, and the first of the final trio of games to be played over a span of just eight days — the standard workload for much of the upcoming season.

For Reading, this will be their final preparatory match. The Championship season begins the week before the Premier League, with the Royals hosting Sheffield Wednesday on the opening Saturday.

Veteran signings Charlie Adam and Michael Morrison should add some quality into the squad, while they also welcome back Matt Miazga on loan, though it’s unclear if he’ll be ready to play in the friendly. Former Chelsea prospects Sam Walker, goalkeeper, and John Swift, midfielder, will undoubtedly be looking forward to this big test.

“It’ll be a tough game [but] it’s always good to go up against a top opposition like Chelsea. You want to get the best out of your last pre-season game. You obviously want to win, but Chelsea are a top team so you want to go into that game and give everything you can […]’

“It’ll be my first time playing against them! A game is a game at the end of the day. I’ve been away from Chelsea for years now so it’ll just be good to come up against the opposition that they have and to see what I can do really, just try and do my best.

Chelsea team news: The Blues remain without the injured quintet of N’Golo Kanté, Antonion Rüdiger, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Callum Hudson-Odoi, and Willian — though at least Kanté’s expected back before the season starts. Otherwise, it’s full steam ahead for the squad, which will still need to be reduced by a handful of players in the final month of the European transfer window (which still runs through the end of August).

Previously: Chelsea showed plenty of promise in the 2-1 win over Barcelona on Tuesday.
