Timbers-Whitecaps FC Preview
TAYLOR BECHTOLD (STATS Writer), Aug 29, 2014
With the Portland Timbers looking to bounce back from one of their toughest losses of the season, Vancouver Whitecaps coach Carl Robinson has called the matchup a "massive game for the organization." The visiting Timbers will try to leapfrog the Whitecaps into the Western Conference's final playoff spot Saturday night when they look to notch their first win in two years in the Cascadia Cup rivalry. Portland (7-8-10) had been playing well during a 3-1-1 stretch before failing to move up in the playoff chase with Sunday's 4-2 home loss to Seattle. The MLS-best Sounders scored three unanswered goals before Fanendo Adi hit the back of the net for the Timbers (7-5-12), who were eliminated from the Cascadia Cup race. Maximiliano Urruti leads Portland with eight MLS goals, while Diego Valeri has contributed seven and Adi, Gaston Fernandez and Will Johnson six apiece. ...More
