Portland Timbers to Win

Giovanni Savarese did not imagine this start for the Timbers. His side gave a good account of themselves but came up short to Vancouver Whitecaps with Lucas Cavallini continuing his goalscoring run. They can right the wrong of their defeat against Houston Dynamo, against whom they are unbeaten in their last four H2H meetings at Providence Park.

Total Goals Under 2.5

Houston finished the 2020 MLS campaign at the bottom of the points table, barely averaging more than a goal per game. They will come up against a Portland side that is missing four first-team players and still showing signs of fatigue. With the season still in its infancy, Savarese will be cautious in his approach and his side will look to keep damage to a minimal.

Both Teams to Score: No

Had Lucas Cavallini not managed to hit the back of the net at the start of second half, the Timbers were grinding out a result. As it happened, the Canadian scored and the visitors could not do much about it. Now in the comfort of home, they will be looking to keep their rivals at bay and ensure a repeat of their CONCACAF Champions League 1/8 result, i.e a clean sheet. With Dynamo struggling to score on the road last season, a repeat of their 2-1 heroics is not on the cards.

Portland Timbers vs Houston Dynamo Fixture Preview

Portland Timbers

Giovanni Savarese oversaw the Timbers impressive third-placed finish last campaign. However, they could not get past the first round in post-season engagements. They will be looking to go further this time around and have the arsenal to do so. Chilean forward Felipe Andres Mora Aliaga came close to scoring last time out and will have the responsibility to deliver the goals for the Oregon based outfit.

Houston Dynamo

Tab Ramos is in his second year with the Orange but would be looking to put the coronavirus marred 2020 campaign in the rearview mirror. His side finished at the bottom of the Western Conference, averaging a miserely 0.91 points per game. They had trouble scoring and keeping their rivals at bay. After starting the campaign on the right note, they can arrest their decline and show what they are made of. All eyes will be on Memo Rodriguez as the American midfielder provides Dynamo creativity and goal threat from his withdrawn position on the pitch.
