This is an important game for both teams and is considered a "6 pointer". Meaning which ever team wins will gain 3 points and effectively take an opportunity to take three points away from their opposition.
The Timbers come into this game with a three game unbeaten streak after a difficult stretch of games. They will look to continue this streak and put distance between them and the red line.
This is as close to a must win game as it gets for the Dynamo. A lose here puts a dent in their playoff hopes.
