Portland Timbers are in 4th place on 30 points in the Western conference and earned respect last time out with a 0-0 draw against high flying Los Angeles FC.

The Timbers has 2 games in hand of them and if they win those they would go 2nd in the league so there is much to play for in this game and much to look forward too for Timbers fans. Rarely are their games without incident.

Portland have been very solid at home and remain unbeaten with 5 wins and 2 draws from 7 games played. They have only conceded 5 goals at home which at present is the best record in the league.

Montreal Impact are in good form in the Eastern conference with 4 wins from their last 5 games.

They are in 6th place and have a 3 point safety cushion for the play offs.

However their away form has been dreadful this season and from 11 games played they have lost 9 times on the road. They have also only scored 8 goals in those games.

Portland Timbers vs Montreal Impact: Prediction

Portland will be the favourites but Montreal can be a difficult side when they are given space and Timbers tend to do that against them.

We will back the both teams to score as our main bet and will also back the draw at half time.

This will be an end to end game with many chances that will open up more in the second half.
