Portland Timbers vs Chicago Fire Lineups & Team News

Portland Timbers

With five victories, six draws, and seven losses, Portland Timbers rank 9th in the Western Conference. Our Portland Timbers vs Chicago Fire predictions won’t fulfill themselves. Coach Giovani Savarese’s boys have to work extra hard up front as they scored only one goal in the past three MLS fixtures.

Predicted lineup – Bingham (GK), Mosquera, Zuparic, McGraw, Miller, Chara, Paredes, Asprilla, Evander, Moreno & Boli

Chicago Fire

The only team behind Chicago Fire in the Eastern Conference ranking is Inter Miami. However, it seems that international soccer legend Lionel Messi is going to join Miami’s ranks sooner rather than later. And that’s definitely bad news for Chicago Fire.

Predicted lineup – Richey (GK), Souquet, Pineda, Czichos, Haile-Selassie, Gimenez, Navarro, Shaqiri, Gutierrez & Kamara

Player to Watch: Evander

Fan-favorite Evander will be laying the groundwork for a Portland Timbers victory on the 22nd of June. He scored four goals and supplied teammates with four cut-throat passes that also resulted in goals.

With Pablo Bonilla, David Ayala, Eryk Williamson, and Felipe Mora out injured for coach Savarese, the pressure on Evander’s shoulders will be way higher but we believe the 25-year-old has the required arsenal to get the job done. He’s a key part of this Portland Timbers vs Chicago Fire prediction and we’re sure that a couple of more good games will earn him a contract with a more high-profile team.
