Portland Timbers Team News:
Portland issued their squad news, and no player has been listed as “out” ahead of this match. However, the availability of a few players is still under clouds, due to the knocks and other reasons.
As many as five players could miss this game. The players being Bill Tuiloma (right thigh injury), Jorge Villafaña (left thigh injury), Aljaz Ivacic (neck injury), Jeff Attinella (right shoulder), and Modou Jadama (right lower leg).
Possible INs and OUTs of this game:
Jeff Attinella may be Portland’s first choice goalkeeper and is a doubt for this match, but even he is fit, he may not ride straight back to the playing 11. For his deputy, Steve Clark has been phenomenal, to say the least, keeping a clean sheet in the last three matches.
The same can be said about Claude Dielna, who looks a great fit alongside Larrys Mabiala at the back. It means Bill Tuiloma may not be rushed back from his injury.
Brian Fernández is fit and will definitely start the match as a forward, with Sebastián Blanco, Diego Valeri, and Dairon Asprilla all featuring behind him in the midfield and wings positions.
