Western Conference outfit, Portland Timbers, take on Eastern Conference club, Montreal Impact, at Portland’s Providence Park, in Oregon, with the home side looking to move level on points with third placed Sporting Kansas.

Portland extended their unbeaten sequence to 12 matches overall in the MLS when they held Los Angeles FC to a 0-0 draw last weekend, and as they now return to home turf advantage for this clash, they’ll be keen to further build upon their promising home record of  5-2-0  12/5 which still sees them unbeaten at home so far this season.

Recent wins over Seattle Sounders, Los Angeles FC and San Jose Earthquakes should see the hosts in confident mood here, along with a solid defensive unit behind them which has kept three clean sheets at home to date.

Montreal Impact come into this clash on the back of a 2-0 home win over San Jose Earthquakes, but this was registered at their Stade Saputo in Quebec, where they’ve done most of their good work so far this term.

And although the Canadian club have won five of their last six matches overall, four of these wins were recorded on home soil, while their away record reads a sub-standard looking  2-0-9  8/24 which includes seven defeats in their last eight matches on their travels.

With failing to score in 5 of their 9 away matches as well as keeping just two clean sheets on the road as well, this could be a tough evening for Montreal Impact who will want to stay in the top six of the Eastern Conference, but they may not get their own way here this evening.
