Friday, at 3:30, Seattle Sounders will receive the Portland Timbers visit in a match for the second round of the MLS play-off quarterfinals. The game will take place at Seattle’s “CenturyLink Field” stadium.
Show for a place in the “bunch of about”.
Ending the regular MLS season with five consecutive victories and adjourning his second position, Seattle entered the final quarterfinals, unlike his direct opponent, who had to go through Dallas hard to reach here. As for the match on the tour, on Monday night, we witnessed a spectacular and balanced classical unfolding of the hostilities, of which, however, the winning host came out. True, Portland won the fight, but not the war, but it really showed a good mood. That’s why, we believe that, no matter how much the bookmakers tend to achieve Seattle’s success, Portland has proven maturity and quality in the game to qualify Friday night on the opponent’s field.
In the last ten direct confrontations between the two bands, Seattle imposed itself four times, Portland also, while the other two disputes ended in a tie;
Six of the previous eight direct duels ended with voids on both sides;
Portland’s last success at Seattle took place about four months ago in regular season, score 3-2;
Seattle Sounders (4-2-3-1): Frei-Leerdam, Kee-hee, Marshall, Tolo-Svensson, Alonso-Roldan, Lodeiro, Rodriguez-Ruidiaz
Portland Timbers (4-3-2-1): Attinella- Valentin, Mabiala, Ridgewell, Villafana- Paredes, Olum, Polo- Blanco, Valeri- Ebobisse
Given the circumstances of this game, we expect a spectacular hostile run. In the same way that we expect both combatants to actively participate in the offensive of this game, we feel that the guests have the necessary resources to take advantage of the tournament advantage to qualify in the semi-finals.
PREDICTION: Seattle Sounders to win @ 1.75
