Today’s game will see the return of former Timbers captain and current Canadian international Will Johnson. This matchup is sure to be a hard fought, entertaining game for both teams.

Despite being the reigning champions, the Portland Timbers have not had the greatest start to the year with a 2-3-3 record and find themselves in ninth in the Western Conference. Toronto FC on the other hand look to end their road trip on a high note after amassing an impressive 3-2-2 record from their first seven games taking them to third in the Eastern Conference. With a win today, Toronto FC could go top of the conference without having played a single game at home. TFC’s first home game is next week against FC Dallas on Sunday.

Portland Timbers: Gleeson, Valentin, Borchers, Ridgewell, Klute, Chara, Nagbe, Valleri, Melano, Adi, Mattocks
