The Portland Timbers have limped up to Canada to take on their northern rivals, the Vancouver Whitecaps. Riddled with injuries, call ups, and suspensions, the Timbers have a heady task before them if they want to break the side’s current six game winless streak and retake a spot among the competitive sides in the West.
Storylines: “There will be 5 players missing from the lineup that played in that match in April. Nagbe, Mattocks and Guzman are still in the Gold Cup and Adi and Arboleda picked up red cards versus RSL. I have no idea how the Timbers are going to line up come Sunday night. Porter could end up starting Ebobisse up front, because if anything he really doesn’t have many other choices.”
