The Portland Timbers open their US Open Cup account this year against Orlando City U23, a team that has already won their way through two rounds of play, including one against a USL Pro side, the Charleston Battery.
Here is all the information that you need for today's match:
Match Preview: "Do not underestimate Orlando. The U23 may be comprised of college kids, but this is a team that has done well for itself recently and will by buoyed by playing in front of Providence Park's large crowd. Also, Cal FC."
Preview Interview: "Look for Romario Williams to make some magic happen. He's a forward with a nose for goal and thus far the leading scorer for the Lions. If Andrew Brody can combine successfully with Williams, I believe the Lions offense will look dangerous. On defense look for the team to be lead by Boyd Okwuonu, Ian Svantesson and goalkeeper Tomas Gomez."
