The Portland Timbers host the Montreal Impact today as both teams put their current unbeaten runs on the line. The Timbers are now unbeaten in seven and have been perfect at home in that stretch, while Montreal have managed two road ties in their current five-game unbeaten run.
"Getting the attack going again will not be easy, however, as the Timbers will once again be without the services of "the Maestro", Diego Valeri, as he continues to miss time due to the contusion that he picked up in the Timbers' 1-0 loss to the LA Galaxy in the U.S. Open Cup. Filling in for Valeri at the top of the Timbers' midfield triangle will almost certainly be Darlington Nagbe for the third match in a row."
