Saturday MLS action from Providence Park, as Portland take on Seattle.

It’s a clash of eighth vs ninth, as Portland host Seattle at Providence Park.

Portland Timbers face his opponents with equal points, it will likely be a thrilling encounter

When Portland host Seattle, they will do so on the back of five victories, six darts, and two defeats on their own ground.

Seattle Sounders face their opponents, equal on points, both teams will doubtless be keen to make progress

Seattle have dropped five points in their last two encounters, drawing 3-3 at LA Galaxy and losing 1-2 to Real Salt Lake.

Also, Seattle need to get out of the losing habit, with seven recorded in the last 11 games. With 33 points, they currently sit ninth in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 0 wins, 0 losses and 0 draws.

With a poor record on the road, which amounts to three wins, two darts, and eight losses, it is hard to predict a positive outcome for Seattle as they travel once more.

A win in this fixture would take Seattle Sounders’s points to 36 in the League.
