Our prediction for this MLS match:
Portland Timbers will be looking to kick off the new MLS season in style when they take on Minnesota United at Providence Park on Sunday. Portland experienced all sorts of problems at the back in the last two warm-up games, with the team conceding seven goals in total, but they should not be written off just yet. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Chile international Felipe Mora, who joined the club on loan in January.
The Loons, on the other hand, did well to add the likes of Raheem Edwards, Jose Aja, and Aaron Schoenfeld to the squad, and, no doubt, they have big ambitions for the upcoming MLS season. Even though Portland Timbers are regarded as favourites to win the opener, we predict that the visitors are going to grab something from the match.
