Minnesota United vs Portland Timbers Match Preview
Minnesota United have seen quite a convincing loss in a friendly clash against Aston Villa (0-3) midway through July and they seemingly struggled to bounce back as they only shared spoils with Real Salt Lake (1-1) and Vancouver Whitecaps (0-0), now hosting Portland Timbers in hope they can finally end the unwanted streak.
Loons have been tougher to beat at home ground but still have a lot to prove after failing to find the net against both Villa and the Whitecaps at Allianz Field, as Timbers now breathe down their necks and an upset here could even mean a drop down the table, as they have games in hand to chasers.
Portland Timbers will surely hope to capitalize on such pressure in Minnesota and they’ve been in a better place lately, as they come into the match on the back of exciting wins over Seattle Sounders (1-2) on the road and LA Galaxy (4-0) in front of the home crowd.
Timbers have thus extended a seven-match unbeaten streak across competitions, where they earned five wins and just two draws since early July and now look very motivated to build on such performances in August too. Giovanni Savarese’ men have now made the Western Conference top 7 cut despite a very poor start of the campaign and building on the tally will be crucial.
We do feel they can now leave Allianz Field unbeaten too and we’ll go for another Draw or Minnesota’s end, which now comes at 11/4 with William Hill and has caught the eye of many in the know as the first time the sides actually share the spoils ever.
We should be in for goals though and – with hope we’re in for an exciting occasion on Sunday – we’re now also going for a Yes on Both teams to score at 1/2 with 22bet. Both have had troubles keeping it together at the back consistently and this does feel like a banker bet.
