The Portland Timbers and Real Sale Lake will battle it off at Rio Tinto Stadium as playoff chances are on the line Saturday. This will finish the Timbers three game road trip as Salt Lake is ready for a must win scenario.
The Portland Timbers will look to continue roll past their opponents as they did against the New York City FC over the past weekend. With capturing a 1-0 victory in Yankee Stadium, Diego Valeri scored his 7th goal tying a MLS record.
It’s also good news for the Timbers as they moved up the table but still have their rivals Whitecaps still occupying the top spot in the Western Conference.
It will come down to the wire between these teams as with over six games left on the schedule, anything can happen.
With Portland about to punch in their ticket to the postseason, they have already fixed up their lineup where it looks solid and ready to go. They have gone with a new formation of 5-2-1 in the last eight games and have climbed even faster in the table.
They are tied for third on PPG and a road result would be great for the Timbers.
Real Salt Lake
Real Salt Lake attempt to climb up the standings did no good the past weekend as they have hit practically rock bottom. With a heartbreaking loss to Vancouver, it’s time to buckle down and win some games.
They have lost two of the past four games and need to catch some hot streaks toward the end of the season. The postseason appearance is still in sight but won’t be there long.
The last time these two teams met was back in Portland, where the Timbers could not lay down the hammer with a 4-1 loss to RSL. It also was too much for Timbers Fanendo Adi and Victor Arboleda who were sent off.
It was a horrible game for the Timbers from start to finish but could RSL create the same magic that happened over a month ago?
Projected lineup: Nick Rimando — Tony Beltran, David Horst, Justen Glad, Danilo Acosta — Kyle Beckerman, Luke Mulholland — Jefferson Savarino, Albert Rusnak, Joao Plata — Yura Movsisyan
Free Portland Timbers vs Real Salt Lake MLS Prediction:
Even though RSL have had the better number against the Timbers, Portland will be looking for revenge as they want the top seed. This could be the game RSL fans remember that knock them out of playoff talk.
