The biggest match of the day is also the last as the Portland Timbers take on the Seattle Sounders in a match that could springboard the Timbers out of their current doldrums and into the hunt for a playoff berth.
Following on the heels of the Timbers' 3-1 loss on Wednesday, this will be a matchup between two teams intimately familiar with each other, facing off for the third time this year.
Here is all the information that you need for today's match:
Preview Interview: "As usual the space behind DeAndre tends to be open and Portland tried to exploit that late through a combination of Darlington Nagbe and Steve Zakuani. I actually think the best way to use that area would be to have Fanendo Adi make inverted runs out there. His post-up game wasn't good enough against Chad Marshall and Zach Scott. If he drifts wide and looks to come off the dribble facing those two he can beat them."
