Portland Timbers vs DC United Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Portland Timbers fell to another away defeat, as they lost 2-1 at the Avaya stadium against San Jose Earthquakes. It turned out to be a disappointing game for Portland with Valeri Qazaishvili and Danny Hoesen giving San Jose a 2-0 lead before the hour mark. Sebastian Giovinco’s late goal provided some joy for the away team. DC United were unable to prevent Columbus Crew from extending their unbeaten record as they lost 2-0 against Gregg Berhalter’s team. Goals from Joshua Williams and Justin Meram in either half were enough to secure the victory.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

Portland will be delighted to return to home comforts that they have picked up four consecutive wins. DC United come into the game after having lost a remarkable 11 out of their 16 away matches this season. The last two meetings between the two clubs at Providence Park have been won by Portland Timbers. I would go with a win for Portland Timbers, which is available at a decent price.

The last four home matches have seen Portland score more than 1.5 goals while keeping to clean sheets along the way. DC United have failed to score in three out of their last five away games. Portland kept a clean sheet in the recent home game against DC United back in May 2015. I see value in going for a Portland clean sheet.

Portland Timbers win – 4/9

Portland Timbers clean sheet – 6/4

Portland Timbers Preview

Portland Timbers will be disappointed at losing away against San Jose Earthquakes, as this was a great opportunity for the team to enter into the final series without any play-off matches. The club are third in the table and just one point behind Sporting Kansas City in the second spot. A run of form that seemed so promising over the last few weeks has culminated in losses against Real Salt Lake and San Jose, but two consecutive home matches will see manager Caleb Porter confident about the team picking up back-to-back wins in the remainder of the season. Diego Valeri is the leading scorer at the club with 20 goals.

Portland Timbers Team News

Gbenga Arokoyo (Achilles tendon), Chance Myers (ankle), Marco Farfan (ankle), and Fanendo Adi (hamstring) are the players unavailable for Portland Timbers.

DC United Preview

DC United are playing for pride in the last two games of the regular season, as their push to catch the likes of Philadelphia Union and Orlando City has come out unsuccessful. DC United will be finishing bottom of the table irrespective of the results in the last two matches. United have been one of the poorest teams in the division and have scored the fewest (30) – a record shared with Colorado Rapids. At the other end, United have conceded a reasonable 54 goals – a statistic that looks much better compared to the likes of LA Galaxy and Minnesota United, who have come conceded more than 60 goals. Luciano Acosta and Patrick Mullins other leading scorers with five league goals.

DC United Team News

Taylor Kemp (hip), Bill Hamid (back), Chris Rolfe (concussion), Robert Vincent (meniscus), Patrick Nyarko (eye) are the players unavailable for DC United manager Ben Olsen.
