In the early hours of Sunday, June 23, a regular season MLS match will take place, where the Portland Timbers will host the Vancouver Whitecaps. The match will kick off at 4:30 AM Central European Time. Experts at Dailysports have prepared a forecast for this match.

Portland Timbers

The team is currently mid-table in the Western Conference of MLS. After 19 regular season matches, they have accumulated 24 points and sit in seventh place. They are right on the edge of the playoff spots, but their nearest rival also has 24 points and a game in hand. They trail the sixth place by one point and the fifth place by four points. One reason Portland is in seventh place is their defense.

The Timbers have conceded 33 goals, the third-worst in the Western Conference. However, they have scored 34 goals, the third-highest in the league. In terms of form, the Timbers have shown good form in recent matches with three wins and two draws.

Vancouver Whitecaps

Vancouver is a direct competitor to the Portland Timbers. The Whitecaps have 25 points, one more than the Timbers, and have two games in hand. They have played 17 matches this season. The gap between the eighth and ninth places is just one point, indicating a tight race in the middle of the Western Conference standings. The difference between fifth and tenth place is six points.

However, in their last five matches, the Whitecaps have not shown great form, with two wins and three losses. Notably, Vancouver has performed well in away matches. In nine away games, they have earned 14 points and are second in the Western Conference.

Interesting facts about the match and head-to-head history

  • In their last head-to-head match, the Vancouver Whitecaps defeated the Portland Timbers 3-2 at home.
  • In the last 5 matches involving the Vancouver Whitecaps, both teams have scored. In the last 8 home matches for the Portland Timbers, both teams have scored.
  • The Portland Timbers have conceded in their last 8 home matches. The Vancouver Whitecaps have conceded in 7 consecutive matches.

Portland Timbers vs Vancouver Whitecaps Prediction

These are evenly matched teams and close neighbors in the Western Conference standings. The match between them is expected to be intense. Considering the Vancouver Whitecaps' away performance, I am inclined to bet on the individual total of the Canadian team. My bet is on Vancouver's individual total to be over one goal with odds of 1.5.
