San Jose Earthquakes vs Portland Timbers – Both the Portland Timbers and the Earthquakes have struggled in Major League Soccer thus far. In fact, clubs have only managed to win 5 games out of their combined 23 games so far.
It’s no surprise they’re at the bottom of the Western Conference standings. It’s also worth noting that both teams have been allowing a lot of goals, and if this trend continues, neither team will be able to make the playoffs.
If the clubs want to turn their seasons around, now is the moment to act. And it goes without saying that these two will try to score three points against each other. With both teams desperate for a win, it’s unclear whether either team’s defense will be able to keep a clean sheet.
