The TRT vs PT match preview –
In the MLS Toronto FC will be traveling to the home ground of Portland Timbers with playoff ramifications in place.
Toronto FC have come alive in the last few games. The Canadian team have responded well to the criticism they faced all season long, and this new do or die approach has fetched them some crucial points. Sadly for them, their revival was a bit too late as the chances for them to qualify for the playoffs are farfetched. But, they still can be a thorn in the sides of teams that go up against them and fail to get a result.
However, Portland Timbers are got themselves in a sticky situation. This team that was all set for the playoffs has lost four games on the trot. It is time for the side to throw in the kitchen sink and return to the basics of football. Amongst the teams that are vying for the playoff spot, they have played the least number of games and still have a chance to clinch the last spot. It all comes down to how badly these set of players want to achieve that dream.
