Portland Timbers vs New England Rev. Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

Portland Timbers’ 100% start to the season ended with a 3-2 loss against Columbus Crew. Portland took the lead through Dairon Asprilla, but goals from Justin Meram and Ola Kamara gave Columbus the advantage. Fanendo Adi’s goal just before half-time levelled the scores, but Niko Hansen scored with six minutes left to hand a win for Columbus Crew. New England Revolution took advantage of Minnesota’s poor form to register a 5-2 win. The first win of the season was made possible due to a brace from Juan Agudelo and goals from Kei Kamara, Lee Nguyen, and Chris Tierney. Collen Warner and Brent Kallman scored the goals for Minnesota.

Betting Tips and Predictions

New England Revolution come into the game at the Providence Park with an extremely disappointing run, as they have failed to score in the three visits to this ground. Portland Timbers have managed two wins in these three games. However, there has been little separating the two teams in recent meetings, as Portland Timbers have managed just one win in the last five games. Still, Portland are strong at home, while New England Revolution are dismal on the road. I would back a Portland Timbers win. Portland Timbers have scored 12 goals in the league already. Their attack is extremely strong with the likes of Fanendo Adi and Diego Valeri in excellent form. I would expect the game to witness over 2.5 goals.

 

Portland Timbers win – 8/13

Total goals over 2.5 – 4/7

Portland Timbers Preview

In the 2016 MLS regular season, Portland Timbers had the worst away record among teams in the Western and Eastern conferences. It was a major surprise to see the team start the 2017 MLS regular-season games with an away win against LA Galaxy. However, normality was restored when the team suffered a loss against Columbus Crew. Caleb Porter will breathe a sigh of relief as his team are at the Providence Park in three out of the next four games. Portland have managed to get the attack spot on, as they have scored 12 goals in the opening four games. Portland are the highest scorers so far.

New England Revolution Preview

New England Revolution were counting on the home game against Minnesota United in order to get the first win of the season. After all, the club finished the 2016 regular season with four consecutive home wins. The club’s away form has been disappointing for quite a while, and it was not surprising that they suffered back-to-back losses against Colorado Rapids and FC Dallas. After scoring just one goal in the opening two matches, New England attackers will be relieved to put five past Minnesota and gain some confidence.
