Reason For Philadelphia Union vs Portland Timbers Predictions

  • Portland Timbers beat Philadelphia Union in each of the teams’ last four meetings.
  • Union scored at least once in each of their five tournament matches so far.
  • Timbers scored exactly two goals in three of their five competition fixtures.

Enthralling contest on the cards in Florida

Having ground out victories in three of their first four MLS is Back Tournament fixtures, Philadelphia Union finally exploded into life in their 3-1 quarter final win over Sporting KC last Friday.

With two-goal hero Sergio Santos, midfielder Jose Martinez and the increasingly influential Brenden Aaronson key, Union displayed a ruthless edge on their way to plundering three goals from just seven attempts on target against Kansas City.

Timbers meanwhile, came from a goal down to win their quarter final 3-1 against New York City – in a contest that saw both teams find the net for the fifth straight Portland match.

The introduction of legendary veteran Diego Valeri just after the hour mark proved a pivotal moment for the Timbers, who battled back brilliantly to seal their place in the last four.

Portland, who beat Union in each of their last four encounters, will be confident that they can progress to the final at Philly’s expense this week. Timbers ran up an aggregate score of 11-3 after that quartet of one-sided fixtures, and with recent history on their side, Portland look excellent value to win this week, while our correct score prediction forecasts a 2-1 win for Giovanni Savarese’s side.

Portland are yet to keep a clean sheet after five attempts in the MLS is Back Tournament, but having scored exactly two goals in three of those five fixtures, another brace should be enough for them to ease past a Union outfit that notched exactly one goal in three separate competitions fixtures so far.
