March to the Match Podcast: The pressure is on the Portland Timbers ahead of their trip to Real Salt Lake
Wednesday, August 28
It's round 3 of the prettiest showdown in MLS as the Portland Timbers head to Rio Tinto to take on RSL. But will the Timbers be up for it mentally after a disappointing loss in Seattle? And is it time to worry about their playoff chances with just one win in their last six? The guys break down the rest of the playoff race as well, with Nick Rosano making a surprise prediction, and Doyle saying what everyone knows: the Galaxy are just fine, but the Quakes might be dead in the water.
