PU vs PT Dream11 Prediction
Philadelphia Union and Portland Timbers have been two of the teams to beat this season and will be squaring off in the much anticipated semi final round of the MLS. Both clubs have remained unbeaten in the ongoing campaign and will fight tooth and nail to get a favourable result in order to advance to the finals. In the quarte-finals Philadelphia impressed on the pitch and went past Sporting Kansas through a 3-1 scoreline. Meanwhile, Portland Timbers also displayed resilience by coming from behind to win the game 3-1 as well against NYC FC. Considering the recent run of form from both ends, the neutral can expect an end to end game of football throughout 90 minutes if not more. Here is the Dream 11 Prediction for the upcoming fixture.
Date- Thursday, 6 August
Kick-Off- 5:30 AM (IST)
Venue- Field 17
Philadelphia Union News
Cory Burke misses out due to travel restrictions, while, Warren Creavalle has a hamstring issue which puts him on doubt to start as well. Andre Blake should start in at goal, while, Wagner, McKenzie, Elliott and Gaddis are likely to fill in at defence. Monteiro, Bedoya and Martinez should be partnering along in the midfield region. Brenden Aaronson, Sergio Santos and Przybylko are in contention to lead the attack up top. They can be added to the Dream 11 fantasy Football side here.
Doubtful: Cory Burke and Warren Creavalle

Portland Timbers Team News
Dairon Asprilla is ruled out as a result of a knee injury. Having said that, Steve Clark should start in between the sticks, while, Duvall, Mabiala, Zuparic and Villafana could be the back four. Williamson and Diego Chara are likely to partner along in central midfield. Yimmi Chara, Diego Valeri and Blanco are expected to start in behind Jeremy Ebobisse.
Injuries: Dairon Asprilla
Portland Timbers Playing 11 (Probable)
Goalkeeper- S Clark
Defenders- M McKenzie, R Gaddis, J Elliott
Midfielders- J Anderson, B Aaronson, A Bedoya, D Valeri, Y Chara
Forwards- S Santos, S Blanco
Sergio Santos can prove to be the danger man from Philadelphia Union’s end. Santos has bagged four goals from the last six appearances in the league this season.
Diego Valeri has impressed in the attacking midfield region for Portland Timbers. Valeri has registered four goals from the last seven appearances in the league this season.
Jeremy Ebobisse can pack a punch up top for Portland Timbers. Ebobisse has netted three goals from the last seven games in the MLS this season.
Brenden Aaronson, Alejandro Bedoya and Ilsinho have a goal each from seven appearances each for Philadelphia Union this season.
Portland Timbers have the psychological edge as they won four of their last four games against Philadelphia in all competitions. They have also scored three goals in their last three games against Philadelphia. However, Philadelphia United have been far more free flowing and confident on the pitch this season. With that being said, the today match prediction odds are in favour of Philadelphia Union to get the win here by 2.69 as per bet365.
