VAN vs PT Dream11 Prediction | Major League Soccer – Portland Timbers vs Vancouver Whitecaps, Fantasy Team News

VAN vs PT Dream11 Match Preview, Team News, Lineups

The Cascadia rivalry will be one of the many high-profile games set to be played this weekend in the Major League Soccer.

Portland Timbers will be playing host to Vancouver Whitecaps and are looking to move into the Western Conference playoffs.

Timbers saw their six-game unbeaten run in the league snapped last weekend when they went down 1-0 away to Minnesota United.

However, manager Giovanni Savarese must be happy with the way his team has played in the last month or so.

While the visitors are second from bottom on the table, better than Colorado by only two points, but having played two games more than them. As things stand, nine points separate them from the playoffs, and a defeat here will make their chances of postseason even slimmer.


Match Details:

The Major League Soccer match will be played between Portland Timbers and Vancouver Whitecaps at Providence Park, in Portland, United States of America. The ground has a capacity of 25,218.
The game will start at 08:30 AM (IST), on Sunday, August 11.

Team News:

Portland Timbers:

  • Timbers will be without the injured trio of left-back Marco Farfan (left knee injury), goalkeeper Jeff Attinella (right shoulder injury) and defender Modou Jadama (left foot injury).

Possible INs and OUTs of this game:

  • Jorge Villafana will feature at left-back, with Jorge Moreira starting on the opposite flank.
  • Marvin Loría was largely ineffective against Minnesota United, and the 22-year-old may find himself on the bench against Vancouver Whitecaps. Jeremy Ebobisse is the player likely to replace him in the playing 11.
  • With goalie Jeff Attinella still on the sidelines, Steve Clark should continue in goal.
  • No more changes are expected from manager Giovanni Savarese.

Portland Timbers Probable XI:

Steve Clark (GK), Jorge Villafana, Julio Cascante, Larrys Mabiala, Jorge Moreira, Diego Chara, Cristian Paredes, Marvin Loria, Sebastian Blanco, Diego Valeri, Brian Fernandez


Vancouver Whitecaps FC Team News:

  • Whitecaps could be without six players for their next match.
  • Victor Pagliari Giro (a.ka. PC) – right foot injury, defender Jasser Khmiri (left knee injury) and midfielder Lass Bangoura (left adductor tightness) are out injured.
  • While the trio of Daniel Henry (back injury), Inbeom Hwang (right calf strain) and Yordy Reyna (right ankle injury) are all doubtful and will be monitored before the match.

  • Vancouver managed to snap their 11-game winless run with the 1-2 away win against FC Cincinnati. So don’t expect the manager Marc Dos Santos to change the playing 11 here.

Maxime Crepeau (GK), Jakob Nerwinski, Erik Godoy, Derek Cornelius, Ali Adnan, Felipe, Hwang In-Beom, Russell Teibert, Fredy Montero, Thelonius Bair, Joaquin Ardaiz
