MLS: Portland Timbers at Philadelphia Union Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

It is a rainy day in Cascadia and the Portland Timbers are set to host the Philadelphia Union as both sides look for three points to move up the stlandings. With the Union looking to hold on to home field advantage in the playoffs and the Timbers trying to fend off challenges from below the red line, both sides are in need of points.

Match Preview

“While the return to Portland will give the Timbers’ some issues to solve on the attacking front, the team should be able to put forward a much stronger and more organized defensive effort than they did against Saprissa. Powell’s contributions to the back line on the right cannot be overestimated, but it is the reintroduction of Jewsbury that should have the most impact on this match.’
