Match Thread: Portland Timbers @ Houston Dynamo

Fresh off of their best performance of the season up in BC, the Timbers head down to Texas for a match against the in-form Houston Dynamo.

MLS: Portland Timbers at Vancouver Whitecaps FC Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports

The Portland Timbers (2-2-3) are back on the road, and back in Texas for the second time this season to take on the Houston Dynamo (3-1-2). The Timbers have historically struggled in the Lone Star State, as was evident in the 4-1 loss to FC Dallas earlier this season. To make matters even tougher, the Dynamo have taken 10 points from 12 in their last four games, scoring 10 goals in the process.

However, the Timbers are coming off of their most comprehensive performance and win of the season, putting three goals past the Vancouver Whitecaps last time out. It was an encouraging performance to say the least, especially for the Timbers’ attack that has struggled somewhat to start the year.
