Preview
Portland and Sporting KC meet at Providence Park, in a match for the 0ª round of the MLS. The head‑to‑head history at this stadium, favours the home team, since in the last 4 head‑to‑heads they won 2 and tied 2. Accordingly, in the last head‑to‑head played at this stadium, for the MLS, on 20‑06‑2021, Portland Timbers won by (2‑1). D. Asprilla (36' ) and M. Loria (45' ) scored for Portland and J. Lindsey (28' ) for Sporting KC. Sporting KC registers significant differences between home and away results, so special attention is due to the home/away factor.

Analysis Portland

The home team comes to this stage of the MLS (Regular Season) after having eliminated New York RB with a away draw by (1‑1) in the previous round. This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 6 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses in away matches, with 18 goals scored and 20 conceded; against 8 wins, 4 draws and 3 losses at their stadium, with 24 goals scored and 14 conceded. In their last match, for the US Open Cup, they got an away loss against Los Angeles FC by (2‑0). In the last 5 home league matches Portland has a record of 1 win, 3 draws and 1 loss, so they have won 6 points out of 15 possible. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 11 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 5 times and have never been able to turn the score around.

What the Portland Timbers have done so far is nowhere near what was expected of them. So, they have to keep working hard in order to grow in Major League Soccer and get to a better position than they are in now. As they are playing in their home stadium and will face an opponent that is not doing well either, a win is a must. Therefore, they need to impose themselves from the start and have possession of the ball, to minimise the risk of a slip-up.

Confirmed Lineup: Justin Rasmussen, Aljaž Ivačič, Josecarlos van Rankin, Dario Župarić, Bill Tuiloma, Sebastian Blanco, Eryk Williamson, Diego Chará, Cristhian Paredes, Yimmi Chará, Nathan.
Coach: G. Savarese.

Analysis Sporting KC

The away team comes to this stage of the MLS (Regular Season) after a away draw by (0‑0) against New York City. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 2 wins, 3 draws and 10 losses in away matches, with 13 goals scored and 28 conceded; against 7 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses at their stadium, with 24 goals scored and 14 conceded. In their last match, for the US Open Cup, they got a home win against Dallas by (4‑2) after extended time. In the last 6 away league matches Sporting KC has a record of 1 draw and 5 losses, so they have won 1 point out of 18 possible.

In this competition, they haven’t won any of the last 6 away matches. In 11 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 4 times and have never been able to turn the score around.

Sporting Kansas City have been disappointing, as they were expected to be fighting for qualification. They know that in order to move up the table they will have to start reacting, as they have had disappointing performances so far. It is time to present more consistent and qualified football, because only then will they get good results. Thus, they have to go into this match with the aim of surprising, as it is possible and it will only depend on themselves.

Confirmed Lineup: Timothy Melia, Robert Voloder, Logan Ndenbe, Kortne Ford, Rémi Walter, Roger Espinoza, Oriol Rosell, Cameron Duke, Dániel Sallói, Johnny Russell, Khiry Shelton.
Coach: P. Vermes.
