Cascadia Cup: Portland Timbers @ Vancouver Whitecaps Match Thread [4:00 pm]

Kim Stallknecht

This is it! Cascadia Cup game day between the Portland Timbers and Vancouver Whitecaps. Use this thread for all your match day discussion.

The Portland Timbers will take on the Vancouver Whitecaps today. Look at Vancouver's history for this season would paint a decent chance for tonight's game, as the team has a 3-4-3 record so far. Still, coming off a 3-1 victory over the LA Galaxy is no easy feat and the Timbers would be wise to not assume an easy game is at hand. Of course, Cascadia Cup games, one should never assume that the match will be easy. Even during the Timbers' terrible season in 2012, they still managed to win the Cascadia Cup trophy.

Here are all the details you need:

Final Thoughts

Three points tonight would see the Timbers land 21 points. For reference, in 2012, it took the Timbers until August 15th in 2012 to reach 21 points. This time in 2012 (mid May), the Timbers were sitting at just 12 points. That's a huge gain over the previous season. More than that, however, three points would give the Timbers a fighting chance for the remainder of the Cascadia Cup tournament. They already drew the Sounders in Seattle, now they need to win, or at the very least draw, the Whitecaps in Vancouver. Get it done boys.
