The visitors simply can’t find a way to beat the Timbers, despite what the bookies tell you.

Portland Timbers team news and form: Good attack, poor defense

As often as Portland Timbers’ attackers are scoring these days, it just doesn’t seem enough, as the backline is conceding like there’s no tomorrow. Crepeau was introduced into the team in order to fill in the gaps, but so far, no luck. We are sure his presence will help our Portland Timbers vs Seattle Sounders predictions this week, though, as he is still one of the better shot-stoppers.

Predicted lineup: Crepeau (GK), McGraw, Bravo, Araujo, Mosquera, Ayala, Paredes, Williamson, Paredes, Rodriguez & Mora

Seattle Sounders team news and form: Lackluster Seattle need to do better

Since the start of the season, coach Brian Schmetzer and his players recorded two wins, four draws, and five losses. This is definitely not the sort of display that earns you the right to partake in the final series, and the manager knows it.

Predicted lineup: Freii (GK), Roldan, Gomez, Ragen, Tolo, Paulo, Atencio, Rusnak, Morris, Vargas & Ruidiaz

Player to watch: Maxime Crepeau

As we mentioned earlier in our Portland Timbers vs Seattle Sounders predictions, Maxime Crepeau conceded way too many goals this season. However, the MLS champion has already proven his worth with LAFC, so we should give him some credit.

Crepeau will surely up his game

Maxime concedes frequently, but we expect him to be at his lethal best against Seattle Sounders, as this is not only an acceptable opponent for the Timbers, but the goalkeeper will count on the home-field support at Providence Park as well.
