The Seattle Sounders have made the trip south to Portland to take on the Timbers in their latest Cascadia derby clash (9pm, ESPN).
The Sounders and Timbers are currently in the hunt for the MLS Supporters Shield, and the winner of today’s match will move into pole position for the trophy, and first place in the Western Conference. Seattle will be looking to snap a two-match losing slide that has seen the Sounders blown out for two weeks straight.
The Timbers enter riding a wave of confidence after putting together a five-match unbeaten streak to close within a point of the Sounders for first place in the West.
