Portland Timbers @ San Jose Earthquakes Match Thread [8:00 pm]

USA TODAY Sports Images

The Portland Timbers take on the San Jose Earthquakes once again, only this time on the road.

Tonight the Portland Timbers will take on the San Jose Earthquakes once again. I would like to say that it will be a pretty game. That the Timbers will, once again, play a high possession, high passing game that ultimately leads to plenty of goals, but it will probably be a slug-fest of a match. Make no mistake, San Jose will play physically and they will be trying to knock around our guys, especially if they feel the Timbers are out-performing them.

The good news is that, more so than any other time in Timbers' MLS history, this feels like a team that is able to win confidently on the road. It might not be pretty, but I firmly believe they can pull it off tonight.

Here are the details you need for tonight's match.

Final Thoughts

The Timbers are still in good shape for the season. 9 points out of 6 games isn't a terrible way to start off the season. In fact, compared to other teams, it's pretty good. If they can pull off 6 of a possible 9 points from San Jose tonight it would go a long way toward a successful season. Of course, there's also the fact that San Jose has yet to beat the Timbers, something I certainly wouldn't mind sticking beyond tonight.
