Midfielders Hayes, Rosales, Reynoso, Hansen, Lod, Trapp, Hunou, Jackson, Dotson, Arriaga

With LAFC and Austin the runaway leaders in the Western Conference, it is Minnesota who currently find themselves at the head of the chasing back in the post-season race.

Yet a slip-up would allow the bevy of rivals - including the Timbers - snapping at their heels to overtake them. Victory is crucial to their prospects this weekend.

Predicted Minnesota starting XI: Dayne; Lawrence, Dibassy, Boxall, Taylor; Kibunguchy, Lod; Fragapane, Rosales, Hlongwane; Danladi.

PositionPortland roster
Goalkeepers Bingham, Sulte, Ivacic, Vom Steeg
Defenders Van Rankin, Bravo, Zuparic, Rasmussen, McGraw, Bonilla, Mabiala
Midfielders Blanco, Williamson, Fochive, D. Chara, Paredes, Y. Chara, Ayala, Tuiloma, Moreno, Loría, Griffith, Bodily

Forwards

Mora, Niezgoda, Gutiérrez, Ikoba, Asprilla, Fogaça

There may be games in the bag but Portland will know that destiny could well be out of their reach if they don't continue their impressive revival through the middle of the field.

Though they are only four points off their hosts, they are on the outside of the MLS Cup places as it stands - and defeat could prove dangerous to their prospects.

Predicted Portland starting XI: Ivacic; Bravo, Zuparic, Mabiala, Van Rankin; Asprilla, Chara, Loria, Williamson; Chara, Niezgoda.
