The Portland Timbers travel to Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Denver to take on the Colorado Rapids. The Timbers looked well on their way to securing a playoff berth during their eight-match unbeaten run, but things took an unexpected turn. Portland have lost their last two matches against playoff contenders LA Galaxy and the Vancouver Whitecaps. The Timbers have four more regular season matches and will need to find their form if they hope to clinch a playoff spot.
