The Portland Timbers are still in search of their first win and tonight Real Salt Lake stand in their way. The Timbers have not had much success in Sandy, Utah, but if they can recapture the fighting spirit that got them a number of results last season then they stand a good chance of getting a point or three against the team that foiled them at every turn last year.
What is it going to take for the Timbers to take their first three points this year? Will Darlington Nagbe be the next Timbers to open his scoring account for the year? Who will line up in the defense today?
Let's get busy making some predictions.
Here is what we are looking for:
- The final score.
- The goalscorers.
- The timing of the goals.
The more specific the prediction, the better.
The rules: Get your predictions in before kick-off. Correctly predicting the score is worth two points, correctly predicting a goal scorer is worth one point, and coming close to the timing of a goal is worth one point. That's about it. I reserve the right to award bonus points for excessively awesome/accurate predictions.
