Fresh off of a massive 3-0 win in Seattle over the Sounders, the red-hot Portland Timbers (6-8-6, 9th in Western Conference) return to Providence Park to host the Vancouver Whitecaps (7-4-9, 10th in Western Conference) in search of another three points. With a win, the Timbers would (at least temporarily) leap over the Sounders and LA Galaxy and move into the 7th and final playoff spot in the West.
Storylines So Far
The Timbers will look to complete the double against the Whitecaps this season after their 3-2 win in British Columbia on April 9, and with a win or draw tonight, the Timbers would knock Vancouver out of Cascdia Cup contention.
Since returning to play after the last FIFA International window the Timbers are unbeaten in five games, winning three and drawing twice while out-scoring their opponents 11 to 4.
