Final Thoughts

The Timbers will look to get some valuable minutes for their reserves while on the other end of the pitch Monarcas work toward the start of their season. Morelia has a history of competing well in the US and will look to extend that against the Timbers today. If the Timbers can get out of the game providing a show for their fans and not wearing down or injuring any of the players that will feature over the weekend they will have to consider it a good night's work.
