Market: Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals
Odds: 5/6 @ Bet 365
Looking to continue their mid-season bounce, DC United will welcome Portland Timbers to their new Audi Field stadium in the early hours of Thursday morning.
Starting with the hosts, although it was a dreadful start to the new season and they may still sit bottom of the Eastern Conference, DC have recently begun to show signs of life under former Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney. After 20 games in the MLS, United have won five, drawn six and lost nine, scoring 33 and conceding 38 in return. While they may now sit nine points adrift of the playoffs, DC do hold at least three games in hand over all the sides above them and a late push could be on the cards. As for their recent form, while they haven’t kept a clean sheet in their last 16 matches in all competitions, they are now unbeaten in their last three and have scored six times on that unbeaten run.
As for the visitors, although they are enduring a mid-season dip in form, it has once again been a successful year for The Timbers. After 21 games in the Western Conference, the visitors have won 10, drawn seven and lost four, scoring 34 and conceding 27 in return. With a points tally of 37, Portland now hold a five-point buffer over dropping out of the playoffs. As for their recent form, The Greens have now won two of their last five, and while they have scored 10 in those five, they have only recorded one clean sheet and also shipped three last time they were on the road.
