The Portland Timbers host Inter Miami winners of six of their last seven matches. This is the first time that the Timbers have faced off against Inter Miami. Sebastian Blanco doesn’t make the starting XI after the injury he picked up last time out against LAFC but is available off the bench. The Timbers are also without Diego Valeri, who misses the game through yellow card suspension.
The Timbers will look to extend their unbeaten streak to eight games and move within two points of the Colorado Rapids in third place in the Western Conference.
Location: Providence Park I Portland, OR.

After a distressing week that saw former Thorns coach Paul Riley accused of sexual coercion, and a subsequent protest led by the Rose City Riveters, expect an outpouring of support for NWSL players via signs and chants during today’s game against Inter Miami.
