The Union will look to extend their unbeaten run to seven tonight against the visiting Portland Timbers. The tenth-place Timbers are closing out a 12-game road trip necessitated by renovations at Providence Park.
Portland got their season off to a terrible start, picking up only one point in their first six games. A three-game win streak pulled them out of the cellar, but the Timbers remain outside of a playoff position and winless in their last two.
The Union are looking to extend their unbeaten run to seven games, making it the second-longest streak in club history. They will likely have to do it without Marco Fabián, who is listed as questionable after missing the matchday squad due to injury last week. Aside from that, the Union are pretty much at full strength. Portland’s arrival offers them a great chance to consolidate their position atop the Eastern Conference.
