Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Spor

The final day of the Rose City Invitational sees the Timbers take on their northern rivals.

The Portland Timbers take on the Vancouver Whitecaps in today' main event at the Rose City Invitational, closing out the preseason tournament with one more chance for the Timbers to get into form before the season kicks off next weekend. With the return of Will Johnson to the line-up and potentially Diego Valeri as well, the Timbers could field their ideal starting eleven for the first time this year.

Final Thoughts

A win here would certainly be the right foot forward for the Timbers and could certainly put to rest some of the lingering questions about just how the Timbers will equal last year's remarkably diverse goal scoring record. That being said, there are not three points on the line here, so any result has to be take with a grain of salt.
