USA Major League Soccer Tips: Colorado Rapids vs Portland Timbers

 

 

Portland Timbers will be in action on Thursday as they get ready for the approaching MLS Cup Playoffs tie with Colorado Rapids.

 

 

Colorado Rapids

Colorado Rapids are in the Conference Semi-Finals of the MLS Cup Playoffs for the first time since 2016. They clinched the top spot in the Western Conference for the first time in club history by beating Los Angeles FC 5-2. Colorado averaged 1.76 points per game in the 2021 regular season, and they are the fourth-best defence in the regular season, conceding only 35 goals.

Portland Timbers 

This is the fourth time in Portland Timbers’ history in which they have made it to the second stage of the MLS Cup Playoffs. They beat Minnesota United 3-1 to advance to the second round of the postseason on Sunday. Having scored at least once in all but one of their last 25 league games, Portland Timbers have scored three goals in each of their previous three matches.

 

 

Prediction

Portland Timbers have not beaten Colorado Rapids this season, losing 2-0 and drawing 2-2 in their last two encounters. There should be plenty of individual quality on display for each team, but Colorado Rapids are more compact defensively with a goalkeeper who is among the best in the league, which could be the difference in this match.

 

1X2 Pick: 1

Final Results: 2-1
