If you have trouble remembering your history Likkit answers that. The short version is that the Seattle Sounders FC have been the better side throughout the history of the two teams. Portland Timbers FC do have the "keepin' it real" cup.
The might of Zach Scott will slip into the backline for Seattle, a backline that is better at goal prevention than the Portland defense is. Let's remind ourselves that Scott has 71 games in Cascadia action and he's dominated Portland for more than a decade.
And then there's Susie's graphic for the match. A picture is worth a thousand words.
Do you need those thousand words?
Sounders are favored at home and should win the game. Hail Hydra.
Nos audietis in somniis. Nos audietis in altum.
The Enemy's Goal Is Down.
You'll Never Yacht Alone.
I have since thought better of repeating this hundreds of times.
