Portland Timbers Team News:

  • Centre-back Julio Cascante was sent off in the last game and will be serving a one-game ban here.

  • Left-back Marco Farfan has been ruled out with a left knee injury.
  • Players who flew away for the international duty have returned to the base and are available for selection.
  • However, some of the players have reported back with some knocks and will be assessed before the game.
  • Larrys Mabiala, Aljaz Ivacic, Jeff Attinella, Modou Jadama, and Jorge Villafana are listed as doubtful for the game.

Possible INs and OUTs of this game:

  • With Cascante out, Bill Tuiloma is expected to partner Claude Dielna at the back.
  • Manager Giovanni Savarese will be bringing in Zarek Valentin at the left-back due to the injury to Marco Farfan.

  • Renzo Zambrano partnered Diego Chará in the midfield against Colorado, but the former didn’t have the best of the game and maybe benched here for returning Andres Flores.
  • While no changes are expected elsewhere with the likes of Valeri, Blanco, and Ebobisse all starting the game.

Portland Timbers Probable XI:

Clark (GK), Valentin, Dielna, Tuiloma, Moreira, Flores, Chara, Blanco, Valeri, Asprilla, Ebobisse

Orlando City Team News:

  • Midfielder Cristian Higuita (hamstring injury) and defender Shane O’Neill (concussion) will both be missing the game due to their respective injuries.

  • While forward Dom Dwyer is out of contention due to the straight red card he picked up in the 93rd minute of the match against Columbus Crew.

Possible INs and OUTs of this game:

  • The biggest news for Orlando City is the return of their top goal-scorer Nani, who has returned to his full strength ahead of this game.
  • The former Manchester United star will definitely start the game if his health allows him, and in that case, either Christopher Mueller or Benji Michel may drop down to the bench. It’s worth mentioning here that the latter got the goal in the last game and maybe given the nod here over any possible replacement.

Orlando City Probable XI:

Rowe (GK), Miller, Jansson, Sane, Ruan, Mendez, Kljestian, Johnson, Nani, Mueller, Akindele
