Portland Timbers vs Nashville SC
Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 8 March 2020
Kick-Off at 23:00 UK
Venue: Providence Park.
Fans of Portland Timbers have a lot of reasons to be worried at the moment. Their squad has been failing to perform on a solid level for almost a month now.
A big majority of pre-season games were lost, as well as the MLS season 2020 opener at this ground against Minnesota United.
Can Timbers step up and finally end the unpleasant losing streak this Sunday against Nashville SC?
Portland Timbers vs Nashville Head-to-head
There were no previous head to head meetings between Portland Timbers and Nashville SC. This year’s schedule is already out and they will lock horns twice this season.
Portland Timbers vs Nashville Prediction
Team from Oregon was involved into the playoffs action last season after winning the 6th place on the West. They were eliminated in the first round though by Real Salt Lake in Utah. Team’s biggest strength was consistent efficiency – 52 goals in 34 games.
Attacking duo from the last season Fernandes & Ebobisse got split unfortunately for Timbers’ fans.
Argentine striker is now member of Colon. This duo bagged 24 goals for Portland last year. Jeremy Ebobisse should be one of the most dangerous players for Nashville this weekend.
Nashville SC have managed to beat Louisville City, Montreal Impact and FC Cincinnati consecutively during the pre-season. Draw against DC United in Washington was also solid.
This squad got defeated by Atlanta in the opening match narrowly 2-1. We see good value in backing them with a double chance here.
Goals definitely should be seen at Providence Park. Both teams to score is the safest approach to the fixture at 1.80 rate.
