Seattle Sounders FC vs Portland Timbers Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Seattle Sounders stretched their unbeaten run to 10 league matches after a 1-1 draw with Vancouver Whitecaps. Nicolas Lodeiro scored from the spot after 19 minutes to give Seattle the lead at BC Place stadium. Seattle looked like being in control of the game when Tony Tchani was sent off for a second yellow card in the 60th minute. Despite the numerical advantage, Seattle were not able to hold on to the lead as Fredy Montero equalised in the 64th minute. Portland Timbers made it three wins in four after a 2-1 victory over Colorado Rapids. Two quick goals from Diego Valeri and Darlington Nagbe put Portland ahead by the 23rd minute. Colorado did score a goal through Mohammed Saeid, but it came as a direct result of a Portland error. The home team held on for a win.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Seattle Sounders have been impeccable at home against Portland Timbers after winning the last four in all competitions. Portland have managed one win in the last six visits to the CenturyLink Field. Despite Porter’s team coming into the game with three wins in four, it is difficult to back against the away team as they have managed only three wins on the road this season. Seattle have won the last four league matches at CenturyLink Field. I would back a win for Seattle Sounders.

Diego Valeri has been in sensational form by scoring in his last five league appearances for Portland Timbers. He has five goals in his 16 games against Seattle. I see excellent value in backing a win for Diego Valeri.

Seattle Sounders win – 4/6

Diego Valeri to score anytime – 3/1

Seattle Sounders FC Preview

The brilliant run of form since July has seen Seattle Sounders go top of the table by overcoming the likes of Sporting Kansas City and Portland Timbers. A poor start to the season meant that the club were outside the top six in the first few months of the season. Seattle’s run of seven wins in the last nine games have helped them open up a one-point advantage with a game in hand. Clint Dempsey is the top scorer for Seattle Sounders this season with 11 goals.

Seattle Sounders FC Team News

Brad Evans (back) and Lamar Neagle (ankle) are unavailable for Seattle Sounders, while Martin Jones is away on international action.

Portland Timbers Preview

Portland are once again amongst the wins, and it has helped the club move into the top two places after the midweek action. Manager Caleb Porter will be keen on cementing this position in the business end of the season. Poland have four wins in the last six league matches, but the biggest worry for the club is their away form. Diego Valeri has 15 goals in the league, and he is the club’s top scorer in the league this season.

Portland Timbers Team News

David Guzman is the only player suspended for the match. Gbenga Arokoyo (Achilles tendon) and Chance Myers (ankle) are now available for the game. Marco Farfan (ankle), Liam Ridgewell (thigh), Jake Gleeson (hamstring), Fanendo Adi (hamstring), and Dairon Asprilla (flu) are doubtful for the game.
