Date: Saturday, 30 June 2018

Venue: CenturyLink Field (Seattle).

Seattle Sounders and Portland Timbers are going to face each other on Saturday evening in Major League Soccer.

Sounders are having a poor campaign as they are one of the worst teams in the league with only 12 points won. They have booked just one win in the last five matches and Brian Schmetzer’s side will need to address their lack of productivity very urgently.

Thus, there is little doubt in marking Seattle Sounders remain as one of the most inefficient side in the Western Conference and that’s the main reason of their poor displays.

The Timbers are enjoying an excellent streak of eleven matches without losing in all competitions. That one launched them into the playoff zone and they can even challenge the second spot if they continue playing like this, especially since they have played one of two games less than their opponents.

Larrys Mabiala and the lads have been playing very well in the back as they conceded 19 goals so far in the season.

Seattle Sounders vs Portland Timbers: Head-to-head

These two sides have been equally successful in their head to head clashes recently as the hosting team has been able to keep the three points at home. The crowd was able to enjoy goals being scored in both nets.

Seattle Sounders vs Portland Timbers: Prediction

Unlike their tradition, this time the visitors should be considered as the favourites and they even might get back home with the victory in their pocket. Seattle Sounders are too poor this season and they are not as convincing when playing at home as in some previous seasons.

Although both sides haven’t been involved in high scoring matches too frequently, we were able to see goals in both nets in their matches lately. In this one, the nets shouldn’t remain intact.
