The Portland Timbers (7-14-6) host the Seattle Sounders (13-6-8) this afternoon at Jeld-Wen Field. Kick off is at 12:51 p.m.
The match will be broadcast live on NBC, 750 AM The Game, and La Pantera 940 AM.
A rare bright spot for the Timbers this season has been their play against the Cascadia rivals, Seattle and Vancouver – two wins and one draw. A win today secures the Timbers’ first Cascadia Cup since 2010, and first ever against all three rivals in MLS.
