Portland Timbers at Seattle Sounders Match Thread [7:00]

USA TODAY Sports

The Cascadia Cup resumes today in Seattle as the Timbers come to town.

Tonight's match between the Portland Timbers and Seattle Sounders will be a showcase of the best Major League Soccer has to offer: a huge crowd, a newly signed star, and the promise of the most talented group of attacking players in the league. Unfortunately for the Sounders, there are group of visitors in town who are determined to crash the party on the pitch and in the stands.

Here are all the details you need:

General Information

Watch it on: ESPN2.

Kick off: 7:00 pm at CenturyLink Field

Portland Timbers: 4th in the Western Conference. (39 points)

Seattle Sounders: 7th in the Western Conference. (33 points)

Starting Lineups

Portland Timbers: Ricketts; Powell, Kah, Jean-Baptiste, Harrington; Jewsbury, Alhassan, Valeri; Wallace, Nagbe, Johnson.

Seattle Sounders: Gspurning; Yedlin, Scott, Hurtado, Gonzales; Evans, Alonso, Joseph, Neagle; Dempsey, Johnson.

Final Thoughts

This is going to be a difficult one for the Timbers. The Sounders's place on the table does not reflect their talent level and the number of injuries and suspensions that the Timbers are dealing with make this a very difficult game to forecast. That being said, if the Timbers can cobble together a functioning midfield they are capable of taking over any game, on the road or at home.
