The Portland Timbers have headed south to take on the San Jose Earthquakes in a match that could see the Timbers regain their spot on top of the Western Conference with a win, or give up ground to the pack with a loss. Either way, the Timbers will need to overcome a solid ‘Quakes defense that has allowed only a handful of goals so far this year.
“While neither the ‘Quakes attack not their defense stand out as being among the league’s elite, the side have been strong enough on both sides of the ball to present a well-rounded front that finds a way to regularly grab a point or three. While they are not on the same level as Dallas or Sporting Kansas City, the Quakes have the third best defense in the West to date, allowing just ten goals through nine games.”
