San Jose Earthquakes vs Portland Timbers
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Thursday, 19 May 2022
Kick-off at 03:30 UK/ 04:30 CET
Venue: Earthquakes Stadium.
Both the Timbers and the Earthquakes have failed to make any impact so far in the Major League Soccer. In fact, from their combined 23 games till now teams have managed to post a total of just 5 wins.
And it is really no wonder why they are placed in the bottom-most tier of the Western Conference table.
It also needs to be mentioned that the two squads have been letting in goals in huge numbers and if this trend is continued there is no chance that either of the two will be making it to the playoffs.
The time to act is now if the teams want to turn their respective seasons around. And it goes without saying that the two will target each other for a much-needed 3 points.
With either squad desperate for a win it is a doubt if the weak defense on either side will be able to keep clean sheets.
