Reason For Portland Timbers vs DC United Predictions

Portland Timbers claimes a 2-1 win at home to Sporting KC in their last game before the international break, while DC United’s last competitive match was away at Montreal Impact on the 1st September which produced a 3-0 win and a few days later they drew 1-1 at home to Puebla in a friendly.

All of the stats suggest Portland Timbers could be in line for a win this weekend and that we should expect at least three goals to be scored in the process.

Recent encounters between these two clubs have gone the way of Sunday’s hosts more often than not, with Portland Timbers winning four of their last six matches against DC United and over 2.5 goals have been scored in three of the duos’ last five encounters. Portland Timbers have scored over 2.5 team goals in two of their last three home games against DC United, which is why we’ve backed a final scoreline of 3-1 in favour of the hosts this weekend.

The form of both teams over the last month or so also suggests a home win is on the cards this weekend, as Portland Timbers have won four of their last six matches, while DC United have lost three of their last five matches. Portland Timbers have won four of their last six home games and DC United have lost three of their last five away games, adding even more weight to our prediction of a home win on Sunday.

The performances of both clubs in recent matches point towards at least three goals being produced in Sunday’s clash, with over 2.5 goals being produced in four of Portland Timbers’ and four of DC United’s last six matches, and we’ve predicted that there will be four goals scored with Portland to score three of them.

We’re confident that Portland Timbers will win and that over 2.5 goals will be scored in the process and have predicted a final scoreline of 3-1. The hosts are the form favourites and have had the beating of DC United more often than not over the last six years. The visitors won their last away game 3-0 but Portland have a strong home record and head into the match on the back of two wins against strong opposition, which is why we believe they will come out on top this weekend.
