Among themselves, these rivals had only one duel. In 2019, Cincinnati defeated Portland 3-0 at home.
Portland replaced Los Angeles Galaxy (2-1), beat Houston Dynamo with the same score and shared points with Los Angeles (2-2), although this result can be called successful. Striker Jeremy Ebobisse showed his best side and has already chalked up three goals.
The Timbers got into a fairly comfortable opponent in the person of Cincinnati, so they expect the team to win, especially after such a successful entry into the playoffs.
Guys of Yap Stam were first defeated by Columbus (0-4), but gathered all their strength into a fist and beat Atlanta (1-0) and then made another sensation in the match with the New York Red Bulls (2 -0). In short, the underdog showed his teeth.
Tests do not end there, as in the 1/8 finals you will have to meet with Portland, so you will need to demonstrate the class again, although it seems that the club is ready for this.
In our opinion, the Timbers will try to seize the initiative from the first minutes, while Cincinnati will play on counterattacks, which will lead to a large number of chances to score, so we expect that both teams will at least once, but still grieve each other with a goal.
Our prediction - both will score at odds of 1.73 in 1xBet
