Game Preview: Portland Timbers vs. New York Red Bulls

Saturday, September 19, 2015

The Portland Timbers are coming off a winless run of three games with a second draw in their last match against Sporting KC, heading into this weekend as they face the New York Red Bulls.

The Timbers have managed to play well over the last couple of weeks, despite their difficulties finishing chances and settling for disappointing outcomes. If the Timbers continue making big plays, the rest should start to fall into place.

Portland is in good graces this weekend playing at home, where it has lost just once all season. If the Timbers can convert their chances, they should be able to walk away with a win, awarding them three key points.

As for the New York Red Bulls, the Timbers should have their eyes set on the big apple’s star player, leading scorer Bradley Wright-Phillips. Phillips has acquired 2015 tally of 15 goals. Clearly an area the Timbers might deem worrisome.

In the past matches at Providence Park between these two cross-country rivals, all have ended in 3-3 draws.

In order for Portland to win this game, one thing needs to happen. They need to convert on their chances. If the Timbers can manage to finish on their attempts it is more than likely they will walk away from the match with a “W” added to their record.

The Portland Timbers are set to play the New York Red Bulls Sunday at Providence Park at 2 p.m.
