Portland Timbers vs. D.C. United Prediction Thread

The Timbers play D.C. United today! Let's get predicting!

Ned Dishman

The Portland Timbers return home after two games on the road to take on D.C. United. The Timbers are still winless through eight games and are looking to extend that to the longest period without a win to start a season since Toronto FC in 2012.

Wait. That is what they are trying to avoid.

Can the Timbers avoid Toronto-esque levels of impotence? Will Darlington Nagbe get his first goal of the year? Can the Timbers stop a team that last year had the single worst record in the history of Major League Soccer?

Let's get busy making some predictions.

Here is what we are looking for:

  • The final score.
  • The goalscorers.
  • The timing of the goals.

The more specific the prediction, the better.

The rules: Get your predictions in before kick-off. Correctly predicting the score is worth two points, correctly predicting a goal scorer is worth one point, and coming close to the timing of a goal is worth one point. That's about it. I reserve the right to award bonus points for excessively awesome/accurate predictions.

Check out our game preview, interview with SB Nation's Black and Red United, and most recent training reports to make sure that your predictions are as accurate as possible.
