It’s a cross conference showdown on Saturday night in the city of brotherly love.
The first place Portland Timbers take on the last place Philadelphia Union. The two teams matched up once last year with the Portland Timbers coming out on top 2-1.
After a very disappointing season last year and missing out on the playoffs, the Portland Timbers look motivated in this season.
They currently have 10 points which is good enough for first place in the Western conference, and tied with Columbus for first place in the MLS.
After winning their first three matches the Timbers have played to a loss, and a draw in their last game.
To win this game they need to attack, but also make sure to play sound defensively.
The Union are going to come into this game desperate so the Timbers also need to control their emotions early.
On the other side of this match up is the Philadelphia Union, who are really getting desperate for a win. They come into this game 0-2-2.
In the first two games of the season they played to draws, but the last two games they have lost both.
The biggest problem for the Union have been scoring goals.
They have only given up six goals all year which isn’t terrible in four games but during that same stretch they have only scored four goals, including one in their last two loses.
The biggest thing for the Union is this game is they need to be aggressive early, but can’t be too aggressive.
They need an early goal to boost confidence but the Timbers can score a lot of goals so they can’t get too aggressive and give up an easy goal.
Free Portland Timbers vs. Philadelphia Union MLS Prediction:
I really think the Philadelphia Union will continue their offensive struggles in this game. The Portland Timbers are much better this year on the back line and that will really cause the Union Trouble.
