Injury Report and Unavailability: Andy Polo, Jeff Attinella, Ismaila Jome, and Jaroslaw Niezgoda won’t take part in this game due to injuries. Eryk Williamson and Claudio Bravo are unavailable because of international duty.
Expected Changes and Strategy: Giovanni Savarese will also roll out a 4-2-3-1. S Clark should start between the posts. R Zambrano and D Chara should partner up in central midfield. D Valeri, S Blanco, and M Loria might play in attacking midfield roles and provide service to J Ebobisse up top.
Portland Timbers Starting XI (Likely)
Steve Clark, Pablo Bonilla, Dario Zuparic, Larrys Mabiala, Jose Rankin, Renzo Zambrano, Diego Chara, Diego Valeri, Sebastian Blanco, Marvin Loria, Jeremy Ebobisse
Rayan Raveloson is a proper box-to-box midfielder. He has scored three goals in the last four games. He also gets a lot of points from his all-action display from the center of the park.
Jeremy Ebobisse has three goals from ten appearances this season. The Portland striker is very good in the air and also has a high pass percentage ratio for a forward.
Marvin Loria could be pivotal for the away side. He has two goals and an assist this season with a passing percentage of 87.8.
Ethan Zubak could prove to be the ultimate differential pick. He would be leading the line for the home side in place of an in form Chicharito.
