This time around it is all about three points in the Major League Soccer Western Conference where the visitors aim to get back on track straight away.

Real Salt Lake came out on top of a seven-goal thriller when the two sides met last week in the cup, with goals from Danny Musovski, Andrew Gomez and a brace from Maikel Chang.

The result will give the team plenty of confidence heading into this game, which will be beneficial considering the fact they are sitting four points behind their opponents in the table at the moment.

However, Pablo Mastroeni’s side were not able to build on the midweek victory last week when they returned to league football at the weekend, as they were beaten 3-0 by Los Angeles FC.

Now going three matches without a win has left them dropping down the table which is a problem considering that another defeat this time could see them drop to the bottom of the division.

For Portland Timbers, this game will be about revenge after the defeat last week, as they will want to quickly put that result behind them for their own personal pride as well as the points in the league.

Giovanni Savarese’s side have struggled with consistency in the early matches this season with four wins, three draws and five defeats, but they have still managed to sit sixth already.

However, Portland Timbers did react well to the defeat to Real Salt Lake when they returned to MLS football by beating Vancouver Whitecaps.

A second-minute goal from Franck Boli gave them the lead in that match, and was followed up by a brace from Evander to win the game 3-1.

Portland Timbers have only managed one victory on the road so far, which they will need to address if they want to keep climbing up the division.
