In their quest for their first MLS Cup victory, FC Cincinnati has had a solid start to the new season. They are currently placed second in the Eastern Conference with 17 points after their first eight games.
They are in second place despite a humiliating loss to St. Louis City last time out. The Orange and Blue started the season with a seven-match unbeaten streak and five triumphs, partly due to a solid defensive record in which they only allowed four goals throughout that span.
However, they face a tricky opponent in the Portland Timbers, who are coming off a confidence-boosting victory against Seattle Sounders.
Giovanni Savarese's team began the MLS season with a victory over Sporting Kansas City at home, but that performance did not set the tone for what came next.
They went six games without recording another league triumph, earning just two points along the way from draws with LA Galaxy and Dallas after consecutive losses to Los Angeles FC, St. Louis City, and Atlanta United.
