Seattle Sounders vs Portland Timbers
Major League Soccer
Date: Monday, 22 July 2019
Kick-off at 02:30 UK/ 03:30 CET
Venue: CenturyLink Field (Seattle).
The Sounders can strengthen their claim on the runner-up spot in the table with a win this match-day, considering the third-placed Galaxy is taking on the toppers of the conference. Their argument for a win becomes emphatic once it is noted that they are the best home team at present, with eight wins and two draws from their ten attempts so far.
The team might be given a run for their money this Monday though, by tough competitors, the Timbers. Portland will be even more focused since they have a tie in hand, and a win will propel them higher in the table.

Seattle Sounders vs Portland Timbers Prediction
The Sounders were unbeaten in 11 of their last 12 home ties, and had an eight-game unbeaten run in the midst of it, along with a four-match winning streak too. The Timbers, meanwhile, had to concede defeat in seven of the last nine h2h encounters with a definite result. Also, three of the last four clashes saw home wins as well.
As such, the Sounders should take the three points on offer this Monday. But Portland has put on some impressive displays in recent match-days. They found the back of the net in 15 of their last 17 overall games, and in ten of their last eleven on the road.
Moreover, 14 of the last 17 overall h2h ties had the BTTS stat fulfilled, and so did eight of the last nine at this venue.
Finally, both being incredibly competitive squads, goals should come at either end of the pitch.
