Portland Timbers vs New England – All the latest Lineup News 

Big troubles for the home side against a completely fresh and ready-for-battle away team. 

Portland Timbers’ lineup 

Many concerns for coach Giovanni Savarese in this game. Dario Zuparic and Larrys Mabiala are both injured and will leave a hole in the heart of the defense. Furthermore, Eryk Williamson has a cruciate ligament rupture and as the most expensive player in the midfield, is expected to have a big impact on the team’s performance. And last but not least – Felipe Mora, the most expensive and important attacking player for Portland (he was the top scorer last season) had knee surgery and will also miss this game. 

New England’s lineup 

There are no injuries or suspensions for the away team. We are looking into the attack and we see the likes of Adam Buksa and Gustavo Bou. The first was the top goalscorer for New England with 16 goals last season while the second one scored 15. We expect them to perform well again.
