Portland had last weekend off, and the team's most recent match was a 2-1 loss to Real Salt Lake in the U.S. Open Cup semifinal on Aug. 7.
This will be the fourth and final meeting of these teams this season. Portland has won two and drawn one, including a win in the U.S. Open Cup quarterfinal.
FCD goalkeeper Raul Fernandez returns to the team after a man of the match performance in Peru's 0-0 friendly draw against South Korea.
FCD is in seventh place in the Western Conference, but is only two points behind fourth-placed Portland. The Timbers do have a game in hand.
