It’s time for another match between the Seattle Sounders and the Portland Timbers. They last played on August 23rd, for the first match to kick off this Phase One of MLS’s Restart plan. You may remember that match going quite poorly for the Timbers, as they shipped 3 goals at home to the Sounders. Since that match, Portland has continued to not win matches and leak in goals. They allowed Real Salt Lake to score four goals and the LA Galaxy scored three on them. Here’s to hoping that trend continues.
