Head to Head
The last time these two met was August of 2016 where the Portland Timbers won at home 3-0
Sporting played them at home the month before though and secured a 1-0 victory.
Make no mistake here, Sporting Kansas go into this fixture heavy favourites to win, and given their impressive home form and 5 point lead at the top of the Western Conference it's easy to see why - they take on a 3rd placed Portland Timbers who have seen better form than that they have created for themselves of late, but with a couple of away games that really didn't go their way could this be the one where they out perform on the home team?
Sporting have achieved so far this season most of their points on home soil, 2/3 of their points in fact, and they will certainly be riding high after their last MLS fixture where they took the game to LA Galaxy and won 2-1, so it's little wonder that the bookies are keen to back them.
With such obvious focus on a strong home game from Sporting it's easy to overlook some of the other factors in this match that has made the book makers decision so easy, the Timber's form away from home has been pretty awful this season, poor defending on their part has seen some ugly scorelines for Caleb Porter's men, so you can only assume that this pattern may extend into this game and the Sporting side will seek to take advantage of this.
I do however expect to see both teams score here, although the weaker side Portland have scored in each of their last six games, though I believe the strength in Sporting's home game will be the ultimate factor here in them securing a win and extending their lead at the top.
