Houston Dynamo vs Portland Timbers Match Preview
Portland Timbers are now only a few weeks away from finally being able to enjoy some home comforts, but in the meantime they could still keep their points total ticking over on their travels.
The Timbers are playing their first 12 games of the 2019 MLS season away from home while their Providence Park ground undergoes a $50million expansion project to increase the capacity to around 26,000.
The stadium is due to reopen on Sunday June 2 against Los Angeles FC, while between mid-August and the end of September there will be payback for Portland in the form of 10 consecutive home fixtures.
In fairness, after a rocky start they have not done too badly on what is essentially a zig-zagging tour of North America because Giovanni Savarese’s side won three away matches in succession before coming unstuck 1-0 in Vancouver at the weekend.
Admittedly they do have a tough task here because Houston have an excellent home record this term having won their last five games at the BBVA Compass Stadium.
But with young striker Jeremy Ebobisse starting to make a name for himself, Portland have pulled off some fine results over the last few weeks and could be capable of avoiding defeat on this journey to Texas.
