Portland Timbers at Vancouver Whitecaps: How to Watch, Preview, Match Chat [2:00]

Roscoe Myrick

The Portland Timbers have ventured into enemy territory, heading north of border in hopes of bringing home three points from their final regular season match of 2016. Facing off against the Vancouver Whitecaps, the Timbers can assure themselves of a playoff spot with a win against their rivals.

Match Preview

“Of course, all that will be made a little bit more difficult with a handful of injuries and absences keeping the Timbers from their first choice XI. Liam Ridgewell and Diego Chara are confirmed absences for the Timbers, while Diego Valeri’s status remains a mystery after the Maestro was forced out of Saturday’s CONCACAF Champions League draw against CD Saprissa.”
