Portland Timbers @ Columbus Crew Match Thread [2:00 pm]

Kirk Irwin

The Portland Timbers take on the Columbus Crew in their first game of July.

The Portland Timbers travel to Ohio to take on the Columbus Crew in the two club's first meeting of 2013. Given recent results by other Western Conference teams today's game should certainly be seen as a must win for the Timbers. A loss and the Timbers could see FC Dallas and Real Salt Lake run away with the top spot in the Western Conference. More than that, however, it would allow the Vancouver Whitecaps and the LA Galaxy to gain precious ground on the Timbers solid 3rd place position.

Here are all the details you need for the match:

Final Thoughts

Keep an eye on Federico Higuain. Without Will Johnson starting in the midfield, I have a feeling he'll be more of a threat than usual. Diego Chara, for his part, would do well to adequately mark the Argentine forward, though he'll undoubtedly be busy covering for everybody all over the field.
