THE PREDICTION

Portland Timbers’ first regular season match after winning the MLS is Back Tournament did not go to plan as they were outclassed by nearby rivals Seattle Sounders in a 0-3 defeat and they haven’t had long to dust themselves down and get themselves ready for this match. The opposite can be said of SJ Earthquakes who will contest their first MLS match in almost a month after reaching the quarter-finals in Orlando. The hosts will be well-rested here but this will be their first match since the departure of club captain Magnus Eriksson so it remains to be seen how that will affect them in the short term. Their matches are often action-packed however, so expect both teams to score in this encounter.
