Portland Timbers team news and form: Crepeau out of Neville’s plans

Goalkeeper-in-chief Maxime Crepeau won’t partake in this event, which is a big plus in favor of our Portland Timbers vs Vancouver Whitecaps predictions. He is on international duty for Canada, which will give other goalies a chance to shine against Sartini’s troops.

Predicted lineup: Pantemis (GK), Bravo, Zuparic, McGraw, Mosquera, Ayala, Evander, Antony, Moreno, Rodriguez & Fogaca

Vancouver Whitecaps team news and form: Gaud can’t do it alone

Ryan did an amazing job in last week’s match against New England Revolution. He scored two goals – one in each half. However, the result on the scoreboard after 90 minutes of play was 3-2 in favor of coach Caleb Porter’s New England Revolution. We should see a quick response from Vancouver if the team wants to attack first position.

Predicted lineup: Takaoka (GK), Brown, Veselinovic, Utvik, Berhalter, Vite, Raposo, Gauld, Kreilach & White

Player to watch: James Pantemis

As we stated earlier in our Portland Timbers vs Vancouver Whitecaps predictions, Crepeau is not going to play against Vancouver Whitecaps. The former LAFC star is playing for Canada in the Copa America, so it’s up to James Pantemis to prove he has what it takes to be a starter for the Timbers.

Can’t-miss chance in front of Pantemis

This isn’t James’ first 2024 MLS game. He was already a starter for his team in several games, but he will get a couple of more chances now that Maxime Crepeau is out of the picture.
