It is time.

The Portland Timbers are in Canada for the second leg of their MLS Cup Playoff series against the Vancouver Whitecaps. Coming into the match tied at 0-0, the Timbers hold the advantage if they can just get on the board against a Vancouver defense that was the best in the league through the regular season.

Preview

Match Preview: "Last week's match between the two teams was a tactical one, with both seeking to shut down their opponents through contrasting styles: the Timbers looked to get on the ball, control the pace of the game, and find their chances by holding the ball and dominating possession, defending with the ball as Caleb Porter called his team's style of play back in 2013; while the Whitecaps looked to sit back, absorb the Timbers pressure, and break down the field in the counterattacking style that they had so much success with on the road over the course of the year"
