The Portland Timbers welcome Cascadia rivals Vancouver Whitecaps to Providence Park tonight with kickoff scheduled for 7 p.m. PST. Last time out the Timbers’ eight-match unbeaten run was shattered in LA. The Galaxy converted a penalty late in the match to make it 2-1 and the Timbers were unable to find another equalizer.

The Timbers are yet to clinch a playoff spot and need to get back to winning ways as quickly as possible, especially considering tonight’s foe. Portland and Vancouver have played to a 1-0 result with one win each. Tonight is the series decider with an important three points and Cascadia pride on the line.
