PORTLAND TIMBERS vs CHICAGO FIRE Prediction

The scoreless draw with the San Jose Earthquakes, extended Timbers overall winless run to 4 matches. In their last game vs Quakes, Timbers looked good, and should of get more than a point from Avaya Stadium. They created good chances, Fanendo Adi hit the post, and Diego Valeri  crossbar from the penalty spot. The draw did snap a 3 game losing in road games.

Both teams extremely hungry for points. The Timbers are in playoffs zone now, but only 4 points above RSL and 5 over Houston Dynamo that has extra game in hand. The Chicago Fire are 6 points away from last playoffs spot, and they need to win a few games quickly, in order to extend their chances.
Higher motivation definitely will be on Chicago Fire side, but would that be enough for Timbers in Portland? I doubt it. Artificial turf in Portland might look exotic to some of the first year Fire players, and just that should give Timbers the edge.
The Fire got impressive result last weekend, when they defeat one of the Western Conference powerhouse FC Dallas 2-0.

The Timbers have never lost to the Fire in 5 meetings all-time between the clubs, with 3 wins and 2 ties. This trend likely will continue on Friday, I don’t see visitors getting result in this match.
