Minnesota United vs Portland Timbers Lineups & Team News

Minnesota United

As we stated earlier in our Minnesota United vs Portland Timbers predictions, coach Adrian Heath’s boys are a force to be reckoned with when performing at Allianz Field. They rarely concede goals and even more seldomly lose. It will be interesting to see if the Timbers can cope with the pressure of playing at one of the prolific MLS venues.

Predicted lineup – Irwin (GK), Taylor, Tapias, Boxall, Valentin, Dotson, Trapp, Fragapane, Reynoso, Hlongwane & Garcia

Portland Timbers

Another plus in favor of our Minnesota United vs Portland Timbers prediction is the fact that coach Savarese’s boys scored only one goal in their last four visits. It was on the 28th of May that Portland scored. However, they got thrashed 4-1 by a superior Sporting Kansas City team.

Predicted lineup – Ivacic (GK), Bravo, Mosquera, Zuparic, Mabiala, Chara, Asprilla, Evander, Moreno & Boli

Player to Watch: Evander

One thing is certain, coach Giovanni Savarese owes a debt of gratitude to goalscorer-in-chief Evander. The latter bagged five goals for the Timbers in the 2023 campaign, and it seems that he’s the only one making a real effort in the attack.

Evander isn’t your run-of-the-mill attacking midfielder. He can score, but he’s also quite the creator. Santiago Moreno is the only player with more assists in Portland Timbers’ camp. However, Evander supplied teammates with three assists this season and will surely try to prove our Minnesota United vs Portland Timbers predictions wrong on the 2nd of July.
