Thursday Major League Soccer action from Providence Park, as Portland take on Caps.

As it stands, Caps will go to Providence Park in eighth place, Portland are currently in fourth.

This season’s Major League Soccer campaign, has so far seen Portland Timbers achieve 46 points

This match sees Portland looking for a return to form, following a defeat in their last match against LA Galaxy.

Portland keep finding ways to win, having secured seven victories in their last nine fixtures is astonishing this season. They currently sit in fourth place, with a total of 46 points having won 14 matches, drawn four meetings, and lost 11 games.

If odds are anything to go by, Caps cannot expect to get a good result of their trip to Portland. This is particularly true, given both team’s form. Portland have won nine fixtures, drawn two meetings, and lost three games at home this season.

A win in this fixture would take Portland Timbers’s points to 49 in the League.

Vancouver Whitecaps go into this fixture with 40 points secured

With two wins in a row under his belt, Marc Dos Santos takes his Caps team into this game full of confidence, and hopeful of another successive victory.

Slow and steady wins the race, Caps are showing that they know by avoiding defeat in 15 of their last 17 games. With 40 points, they are established in eighth in the League having won 10 meetings, drawn 10 matches, and lost nine games.

It must be a worrying prospect for Caps to go back on the road, with a bud run of away performances under their belt this season. So far they have only secured one win and eight darts to the home team.

A win in this fixture, would take Vancouver Whitecaps’s points from 40 to 43, so far this season.

September 2021 was the most recent time these two clashed in this competition and The Timbers took all three points winning 0-1.
