A very interesting game will take place at the MLS between the Portland Timbers and Orlando City. Portland has won three wins in the last five matches and two matches ended in a draw. Orlando's statistics are identical on this segment.
The team made it out of Group F in one breath, where it scored seven points and took first place. Portland left behind Los Angeles, Houston Dynamo and Los Angeles Galaxy, which is clearly worth a lot.
In the 1/8 finals, the Lumberjacks beat Cincinnati (2-1) not without problems, then sensationally defeated New York City (3-1) and in the last meeting they cleverly dealt with Philadelphia (2-1 ), so there are no questions to the club at all.
23-year-old Frenchman Jeremy Ebobisse played an important and key role in the Timbers, with seven goals on his account, so you can be sure that he will make the opposition's defense worry more than once in the final.
It all started with a fierce struggle in the group stage, as they had to confront Inter Miami, Philadelphia and New York City, but Oscar Parehi's club not only held out, but also took first place with seven points.
“Orlando” did not slow down, but began to add with each match. Although at the stage of 1/8 finals there was a real fight against “Montreal”, but an accurate shot in the 60th minute by Tesho Akindele decided the fate of the meeting (1-0). This was followed by a victory over Los Angeles in a penalty shoot-out (2-1), which was also spectacular and a confident win against Minnesota in the semifinals (3-1).
Still, a good team game with the charismatic captain Nani decides, especially in difficult confrontations. The team from Florida deserved the championship no less than the rival, so a real fight awaits us.
“Portland” will try to play the first number, because there is nowhere to retreat. They need to go forward and take risks, which, in principle, is what Orlando needs, since Oscar Pareha's charges are good at counter-attacks and quickly come out of defense.
In our opinion, the "lions" will find the key to victory as in the last personal confrontations and become the champions of the MLS.
