Jeremy Ebobisse has been the standout for Portland Timbers. Ebobisse has netted four goals from the last eight appearances for his side this season.
Nani has been lethal from the wide areas for Orlando City FC. The Portuguese international has three goals from the last six games for his side.
Sebastian Blanco can play a pivotal role from the left flank for Portland. Blanco has three goals to his name from the last eight games.
Chris Mueller has also be effective in the final third region for Orlando. Mueller has four goals from the eight games so far.
Portland are unbeaten in their last six games in the MLS and will be fancying their chances here. However, Orlando City also have enough flair and experience in their lineup that could make all the difference. We can expect a tight 90 odd minutes if not more. Having said that, the today match prediction odds are backing a Portland win by 2.80 as per bet365.
