Check out our analysis, team news, line-ups and see our prediction for this match.

The Cascadia Cup is the focus of Providence Park this weekend, where the Portland Timbers host Seattle Sounders On Sunday.

Portland finished a three-game run without a win last Saturday, beating Real Salt Lake 3-2 while the Rave Green lost two of their last three MLS encounters.


Prediction for this match

So far in 2021, the Timbers have done just enough to get through, they never got too high or too low which explains why they are in the position they are in.

They haven’t lost more than two games in a row throughout the year, but they haven’t won more than two games in a row at the same time, so it seems fitting that they are sixth in the Western Conference at halftime of the season.

Like their opponents on Sunday, Portland had a lot of injury problems and players struggled in and out of the line-up, but through all of that Giovanni Savarese Deserves recognition for not only keeping his team afloat, but also in a playoff position.

Last weekend they got off to a quick start and took a 2-0 lead before the game was 30 minutes old but couldn’t find the elusive third goal.

Despite being fortunate enough to score three points, Portland will see such a hiatus due as they missed out on several games where they likely would have deserved better.

While it’s not the most famous trophy this season, the Timbers would love to win the Cascadia Cup at the end of this season for the first time since 2017, but they’re off to a bad start, losing to the Sounders and the Vancouver Whitecaps in their only two games in this championship series in the Pacific Northwest.

The Sounders are slowly getting healthier and this is a welcome sight for them Brian Schmetzerwho has struggled lately finding the right combination of players to win games.

They could maintain their first place for a long time without many veterans in the line-up, but as injuries have piled up, this team has shown in recent weeks that they are human after all.

While Seattle have been without a win in their last three MLS games, they will feel pretty good in this game after beating reigning CONCACAF Champions League winners Tigres UANL 3-0 in the League Cup quarter-finals on Tuesday.

Seattle are keen to become the first team to win the Cascadia Cup three times in a row and they have got off to a good start, currently even on points with the caps but with a better goal difference.

Many players recognized that beating such a solid Mexican team this week is something they desperately need to regain their confidence.

On Tuesday Schmetzer played most of his regular starters. So with just five days off until Sunday, we’ll see what line-up he will use against the Timbers and how much energy his team will have.
