Seattle Sounders vs Portland Timbers for the Major League Soccer championship match on Monday at CenturyLink Field Stadium.
The Seattle Sounders are aiming to boost their winning streak in Major League Soccer when they host the Portland Timbers at CenturyLink Field. Seattle defeated the defending champion Atlanta United in their last league game, which is a morale boost for the team before this game.
Seattle Sounders are third in the Western Conference, overtaken by the Los Angeles Galaxy, who won their game on Friday. The team has at this stage of the championship thirty-five points, but the “Sounders” can return to the second place of the table if they win this game.
This team has arguments for a win, mainly because it plays in front of their fans, and also has a very positive record at home with eight wins and two draws in the last ten matches. In fact, the Sounders are favourites in this match. However, the Timbers can cause some difficulties.
The Portland Timbers have shown some signs of improvement in recent times as the team have two successive victories against Dallas and New York City. Portland wants to continue with this positive moment and clearly go after the result in this game.
Portland Timbers has twenty-five points and is ninth in the Western Conference, still out of the playoff qualifying zone. This less good rating is due to the weak start of the season, but the notorious improvements in the last month have made the team go up to the top nine.
Timbers have a lot of doubts about players they can use in this game like Farfan, Larrys Mabiala, Jeff Attinella, Modou Jadama, Jorge Villafaña and Aljaz
Seattle Sounders have been a very consistent team at home, but I think Portland Timbers are an adversary capable of putting a lot of fight, and even winning away.
