If you are going to the game tonight, please make sure you stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water before, during, and after the game, even though the Union are doing the absolute bare minimum to help you.

Portland Timbers are weak in central defense tonight and the Union get Jack McInerney back into the line-up leading the attack along with Conor Casey, who is currently experiencing a run of good form. The Timbers are a good team but this game may yet be winnable. Go Union! DOOP!
