Sounders vs. Timbers: Match Night Commentary



The Seattle Sounders and Portland Timbers renew what is arguably the best rivalry in Major League Soccer tonight when the Sounders play host to the Timbers at CenturyLink Field (9pm, ESPN).

The Sounders are in the thick of the race for a top three spot in the Western Conference playoffs, while the Timbers are still playing for the Cascadia Cup, and a win tonight could give the Timbers the trophy.

Portland's record isn't a good one, but the Timbers have enjoyed an improved run of form and should give the Sounders a stiff test.

Tonight should offer a good showcase for Sounders forwards Fredy Montero and Eddie Johnson, with Johnson on the verge of a return to the U.S. national team.
