Both teams have the same points this season

Portland Timbers have had a torrid start to the season so far, sitting 12th in the Western Conference table and enduring an 8-match winless streak after a defeat to Charlotte FC in the previous match. While they are one of the best-scoring teams in the division, Phil Neville’s men are also extremely fragile at the back, conceding 23 goals in 11 league matches so far.

Meanwhile, Seattle Sounders have also underwhelmed this season, sitting just one place above their opponents. They have the opposite record to their opponents, with a solid defence but a misfiring attack. They won on penalties against Louisville City in the US Cup in their last match.

Kick-off:

Friday: 13th May 2024, 2:15 AM IST

Location: Providence Park, Portland, USA

Form:

Portland Timbers (all-competitions): L-L-D-D-D

Seattle Sounders FC (all-competitions): W-D-W-L-L

Players to watch:

Felipe Mora (Portland Timbers)

Felipe Mora has been in good form for Portland this season, with 4 goals and an assist in 7 games. The Chilean forward will be shouldering the goalscoring responsibility instead of the injured Evander and would have to be on the top of his game for the team to grind away a positive result.

Raul Ruidiaz (Seattle Sounders FC)

Raul Ruidiaz is the only attacker who has fired for Seattle so far this season, having already scored 6 goals while nobody else in the team has scored more than one so far. The Peruvian striker is physical and clinical in the penalty area.

Match Facts:

  • Portland Timbers are currently winless in 8 games.
  • Portland Timbers have the second-worst defence in the league this season.
  • Seattle Sounders have the third-best defence in the league this season.
