The Portland Timbers travel to Sandy, Utah to take on Real Salt Lake in Rio Tinto Stadium. Kick off is slated for 7:30 p.m. PST. The Timbers clinched a playoff spot last night thanks to the 1-1 draw between the Vancouver Whitecaps and LAFC. Portland could host a playoff match at Providence Park with a win in Sandy, Utah tonight. The Timbers only need one win out of their final two matches against Real Salt Lake and Austin FC to lock up a home playoff match.
Last time out the Timbers won in spectacular fashion thanks to a Diego Chara goal and that Dairon Asprilla bicycle kick. The 2-0 win ended the Timbers' three-match losing streak. Real Salt Lake have lost three of their last five and come into the match having lost 4-3 to San Jose on Saturday.
Location: Rio Tinto Stadium I Sandy, Utah
