Philadelphia Union vs Portland Timbers Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

Philadelphia Union slipped to a second consecutive loss, as DC United were able to manage a 2-1 win at the RFK Stadium. Philadelphia will consider themselves unlucky with this game, as DC United scored twice in the space of nine minutes. José Ortiz capitalised on an error from Fabinho, while Luciano Acosta scored from the spot in the 27th minute. Even though Charles Sapong pulled one back in the second half, it was not enough for the away team. Portland Timbers went two games without a win, as they were only able to get a 1-1 draw with New England Revolution. Diego Valeri gave the home team a lead after just 12 minutes. Portland were unable to hold on, as Lee Nguyen scored with six minutes of normal time remaining to secure a point.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Philadelphia have managed just one win against Portland Timbers in the last six meetings between the two teams. Three out of the last six games between the two clubs have finished as a stalemate, as Portland Timbers have also been unable to dominate this fixture. Philadelphia are winless this season and low on confidence. I would back a draw in the game. Philadelphia Union have failed to score only once this season, while Portland Timbers have scored in all of their five league games. I would back both teams to score.

Draw – 11/5

Both teams to score – 1/2

Philadelphia Union Preview

Philadelphia Union may have scored at least a goal in the last three games, but they are still searching for a first win in the 2017 MLS regular season. Back-to-back away defeats have also raised concerns, and the team will be glad to return to the Talen Energy Stadium. Even though the club enjoyed eight home wins last season, only one of those wins came in last six matches. Philadelphia have been going through a poor patch of home form for quite a while with just one win since August 2016. Charles Sapong is the club’s top scorer with three goals and he has scored in his last three appearances.

Portland Timbers Preview

Portland Timbers made an excellent start to the 2017 MLS regular season with three consecutive wins. Since then, however, they have suffered a defeat and a draw in the last two matches. Caleb Porter will be pleased with his team’s offensive strength. Portland have scored the highest number of goals (13) amongst any team in the MLS 2017 season so far. Fanendo Adi and Diego Valeri have been in impeccable form. Adi has four goals in five appearances while Valeri has five in as many games. Portland have clearly continued from where they left last season, as they are the third best scorers in the 2016 Western Conference table.
