Portland Timbers vs. Norwich City FC Match Thread [8:00 pm]

The Portland Timbers play their final friendly of the season against the English Premier League's Norwich City FC.


Tonight the Portland Timbers play their final friendly of the year against the English Premier League side Norwich City FC. While Norwich isn't exactly one of the most exciting teams to see in the world, they should be able to provide Timbers fans with some entertainment tonight. Aside from that, however, there's nothing really riding on tonight's game. Just sit back and enjoy it.

Here are the details:

General Information


Kick off: 8:00 pm at Jeld-Wen Field.

Portland Timbers: 34 points in MLS, but really it doesn't matter here.

Norwich City FC: 0 points in the EPL, but again it doesn't matter. Also their season hasn't started yet.

Final Thoughts

Don't expect many of the Timbers' regulars to start tonight. With an important road game against the San Jose Earthquakes on Saturday, I'm sure Caleb Porter will want to conserve as much of their energy as possible. That said, I would expect a few of them to get minutes here and there, possibly interchanging them between the first and second halves. It should be exciting to see some of the lesser seen Timbers players however. Jose Adolfo Valencia, in particular, can be a very exciting player to watch.
