Portland Timbers vs. Montreal Impact - Match Preview Image

PROVIDENCE PARK • Portland, Oregon
July 13, 2016 • Week 19 • MLS Game #187
10:30 pm ET (MLS LIVE, ROOT Sports NW, TVA Sports)

Unbeaten streaks will be put on the line as the Portland Timbers welcome the Montreal Impact to Providence Park in Portland, Oregon, on Wednesday. Both sides face short turnarounds. Portland visited the New York Red Bulls and grabbed a point with a goal-less draw at Red Bull Arena on Sunday, and Montreal ended even with Real Salt Lake at 1-1 a day earlier.

  • The Timbers have gone seven games without losing and the Impact are on a five-match undefeated run.
  • The Timbers, who are looking to get into a playoff spot in the West, have posted back-to-back clean sheets, but the Impact have scored six goals in their last three games.
  • This is the only meeting in the regular season between the teams this year.
  • They played once in 2015, with the Timbers coming out on top, 2-1. Nat Borchers and Diego Valeri scored in the second half of that match before the Impact responded with a goal of their own through Dominic Oduro.
  • The Timbers have won the last two meetings between the teams, over the last two seasons – both wins coming at Stade Saputo. Each team has won twice in four all-time meetings.
  • The road team has won the last three meetings in the series. The Impact won 2-1 on March 9, 2013 – the only meeting in Portland in the four games in the all-time series.
