CF vs PT Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:

Teams from either conference face off in the regular season of the MLS as Chicago Fire travels to take on Portland Timbers on Wednesday.

Chicago Fire are in the 10th spot in the Eastern Conference and this has been an underwhelming season for the team. They are only 3 points off from securing the playoff berth, and with only a few games left to be played, the fight for that spot is only going to get more intense, not points can be afforded to be dropped.

Meanwhile, Portland Timbers are in the 8th spot in the league Western Conference, and last year’s runner’s up are really having a difficult time this time out. They need a strong performance for the remainder of the season or else they will not be able to emulate anything at all.
