Seattle Sounders vs Portland Timbers
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Saturday, 9 July 2022
Kick-off at 21:30 UK/ 22:30 CET
Venue: Lumen Field.

Seattle Sounders have been pretty consistent lately and they are placed 7th in the table. Their immediate objective would be to climb higher in table to ensure that they will be in a good position to qualify for the playoffs towards the end of the campaign.

One thing that deserves to be mentioned is their dominance at home. They have been a good run at home for quite some time now and are scoring goals at a good rate as well.

Meanwhile the Timbers are placed in the bottom half of the table and they are struggling to post points on the board. Most importantly they have been on a poor stretch on the road for quite some time now and are letting in goals in huge numbers as well.

In addition, they also have a rather inferior head-to-head record against this rival over the years.

Taking into account these observations expect a victory for Seattle Sounders this weekend.
