Portland Timbers have a perfect opportunity to qualify for CONCACAF Champions League playoffs despite the poor start. Deportivo Saprissa will be arriving to Providence Park in an attempt to stay undefeated and win the group.
One of the most anticipated matches of CONCACAF Champions League will be played in Oregon. Portland Timbers will do their best to defeat Deportivo Saprissa and make their first appearance in the playoffs of this competition.
The squad from Costa Rica has already managed to beat the MLS representative in September, but failed to keep the form on a high level and lost a couple of very important domestic matches.
Portland’s performance in convincing 4-2 loss suffered in San Juan de Tibas was way better than the bare result suggests. Caleb Porter wasn’t using his best players for that match, slightly underestimated the strength of Deportivo Saprissa and got punished heavily. That is not going to happen the second time in a row.
It is worth mentioning that Jermaine Taylor probably had one of the worst games of his career, as he first scored an own goal, and then conceded a penalty. The fans of Portland Timbers have been on the drift for a short period of time following the news of Fernando Adi suffering a knock during the last training session. However, 26-year old Nigerian striker has recovered and will probably make an appearance in Oregon. Chances to see him open the scoring sheet are 3/1 with Bet365
We believe that The Lumberjacks will show quality, shine against Deportivo Saprissa and claim a spot in the playoffs. Home victory is currently offered at 9/10 with BetVictor
, which is our primary betting recommendation for this match. Portland will be entering this event after winning six consecutive games in front of their crowd, while the Costa Rican side has lost three out of their last four games on the road.
