DID YOU KNOW?
  • With the playoff chase taking shape, both these sides have aspirations of nabbing the wildcard slots. Portland is three points back and Chivas USA sits just a point away.

  • These two teams have met exactly once before. Marcos Mondaini scored the game's only goal in that June encounter as the Goats won.
  • Portland beat fellow expansion side Vancouver this weekend, bolstering its impressive home record to 7-4-2. Later, 10,000 turned out for a Timbers reserve match.
  • This match represents the last of Chivas USA's five-game road swing. Afterward, six of its last eight matches will be in the Home Depot Center.
  • Juan Pablo Angel, acquired from the LA Galaxy, scored on his Chivas USA debut, helping the Goats to a 2-2 draw with the Colorado Rapids. New addition Laurent Courtois also scored his first goal for the club in that match.
