Match preview

These two Cascadia Cup rivals go head-to-head in Canada.

Portland and Vancouver, alongwith Seattle, compete annually to win the Cascadia Cup, awarded to the club with the most points from head-to-head matches.

The Sounders have actually won the last three taking their tally to seven, one more than Vancouver's six while Portland are still one four.

The trophy will be awarded on 17 September when Seattle come north of the boarder, so who will get three points on the board?

Of course, tangible MLS points are also up for grabs, something Vancouver have found particularly illusive so far in 2022.

Although, last weekend, Vanni Sartini's side did win for the first time this season, beating Sporting Kansas City 1-0 thanks to Ryan Raposo's goal.

Before this, the Whitecaps had just one point to their name so are now off the bottom of the Western Conference.

Portland Timbers though were MLS Cup Finalists as recently as December, but are currently languishing just one place above their local rivals.

Giovanni Savarese's side were beaten 3-1 in last weekend's showpiece match by LA Galaxy at Providence Park.

Bill Tuiloma scored an own goal before firing home a free-kick from 35 yards out, while Pablo Bonilla was sent off on an eventful afternoon in Oregon.

The Timbers' only victory to date came against Austin FC with their only defeat, before last weekend, coming in Dallas.

Which Cascadia club will claim three vital points at BC Place?
