Our prediction for this MLS match:
All eyes will be on Providence Park when Portland Timbers and Orlando City square off against each other in the MLS is back tournament final. Portland set up a meeting with Orlando by beating the likes of Cincinnati, New York City, and Philadelphia Union, but the game against the high-flying Lions will be anything but a walk in the park for the home team. Jeremy Ebobisse, who found the net in the semis, is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts, while Dairon Asprilla and Andres Flores remain in the recovery room.
Orlando City, on the other hand, did well to outplay Minnesota United in the semis, with Portugal international scoring a brace. The Lions have been playing above expectations at the MLS is back tournament, and even though Dom Dwyer misses the match with injury, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score.
