SS vs PT Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Portland Timbers are one of the favourites to qualify for the playoffs from the Western Conference. They are 7th on the table, having played two games fewer than FC Dallas in 8th.
But the most favourable thing for Portland is that they will be playing 7 of their season-ending 8 games at home.
For Seattle Sounders, three or four wins should be enough to propel them into the post-season. It should not be a problem for them to achieve this target from the remaining 8 matches.
SS vs PT Dream11 Grand League Picks for Captains & Vice-Captains:
Diego Valeri: One of the most technically gifted player ever to grace this league. A living MLS legend, and a perfect role model for the young and aspiring football players.
His skills on the ball, and more importantly the passing range, which is perhaps the best amongst all the MLS players.
Jeremy Ebobisse: His phenomenal rise at the backend of last season saw him nailing down a regular spot in Portland's starting 11. Still only 22, the young forward has scored some crucial goals for Portland this season.
Brain Fernandez: A striker of his own traits. He brings a totally different dimension to this team due to his uncanny playing style. He loves to drop back into the midfield, sometimes onto the right-wing. His versatility is the main reason why he is so hard to mark.
From Seattle Sounders, the likes of Raul Ruidiaz, Jordan Morris and Harry Shipp can't be dropped.
SS vs PT Dream11 Grand League Scenarios:
Portland to win the game:
That's likely to happen here. In that case, the likes of Brain Fernandez, Jeremy Ebobisse and Sebastian Blanco, along with midfield maestro Diego Valeri are worth considering.
Choose defensive midfielders from Seattle – Cristian Roldan or Gustav Svensson could do the trick here.

Team combination 3:
If it's a draw, means both the teams managed to do enough to share the points. The best possible combination to go with should be a five-man midfield.
Team combination 4:
A win for Seattle Sounders.
Unlikely, but not impossible. In that case, reverse the scenarios from Portland's win.
