Portland Timbers vs. Vancouver Whitecaps Match Thread [6:00]

Craig Mitchelldyer-USA TODAY Spo

The Timbers take on the Whitecaps today in a Cascadia Cup clash.

The Portland Timbers are back in town and set to take on their Cascadian rivals, the Vancouver Whitecaps. With the Timbers' lineup still in flux following their busy week, this could be the team's third straight match with major changes as they look to continue their current run of good form.

Going into this game, the Timbers are unbeaten in six matches, while the Whitecaps have not lost in their last five. Both teams are looking upwardly mobile currently, with the winner likely to spring up the standings.

Here is all the information that you need for today's match:

Previews

Match Preview: "The Timbers will also need to be wary of more young attackers in Kekuta Manneh and Sebastian Fernandez out wide, while newcomer Pedro Morales pulls the strings from the center of the pitch, playing a similar game to Diego Valeri. Through eight games, Morales has three goals and three assists and is consistently at the heart of Vancouver's attack, so it would not be too surprising to see either Chara or Johnson stuck to him like glue tonight."

Preview Interview: "Urruti and Adi will definitely give them a challenge, but hopefully Vancouver’s defense has learned from the two matches against the LA Galaxy when, despite having played fairly well, momentary lapses resulted in conceding goals at very crucial times in the game. In fact, my concern at the moment is at the other end of the pitch because despite all the possession and creation of quality scoring chances they are not making the most of all the quality build-up play and turning those chances into goals."
