Portland Timbers vs. Seattle Sounders FC: Complete Preview for MLS Semifinal

The Portland Timbers and Seattle Sounders renew their rivalry Thursday night. This time, the stakes have been raised, as a spot in the Western Conference final is on the line.

In the first leg of this two-legged affair, the Timbers came through with a big 2-1 win at CenturyLink Field. While away goals don't count in this instance, going into Seattle and walking away with a win is still a huge result.

Jeld-Wen Field will be electric for this fixture. Overcoming a one-goal deficit will be difficult for the Sounders in such a daunting atmosphere. Portland lost just one match there the entire season.

Here's a quick preview for the newest entry in this Pacific Northwest derby.


When: Thursday, Nov. 7, at 11 p.m. ET

Where: Jeld-Wen Field, Portland, Ore.
