Team News

Portland
Colorado
  • Claudio Bravo has had tendon surgery and is out 10-12 weeks.
  • Marvin Loria has had knee surgery and is out 4-5 months.
  • Felipe Mora has a minor toe injury and is a major doubt for the opener.
  • Maxime Crepeau is in Canada getting his green card and is doubtful to be back in time.
  • Sam Vines, Darren Yapi, and Omir Fernandez were all held out of the last friendly for precautionary rest.
  • Lamine Diack is questionable as he awaits his visa to be approved.

Prediction

  • Portland finished the season just outside the playoff line but were one of the better teams in the league down the stretch. New signing Crepeau is getting his green card and the Timbers will most likely be without Felipe Mora. Expect a second-season breakout for Evander who will play a key role in whether this team makes the playoffs or not.
  • Colorado were downright awful last season. They didn't waste any time and hit the transfer market signing several key players including Djordje Mihailovic, Sam Vines, Zack Steffen, and Omir Fernandez. This is a much better team than what took to the field last year, but they might take some time to build some chemistry.
