Austin vs Portland Timbers Prediction – MLS – 07/02

Austin vs Portland Timbers prediction on July 02, 2021. Still not really integrated with MLS this season, so for rookie Austin, even if he is to welcome Portland Timbers at home, 3 points is still an impossible task. And Austin getting the win is also very unlikely.

Austin Overview

Austin FC is a rookie of the tournament, having only attended the MLS since this season, and they are not doing too well when they only get themselves a place in the bottom group in the American West. After 11 matches, they only got 2 wins, 4 draws, and 5 defeats. 

This leaves the host with only 10 points and standing at the penultimate position at this time. In recent matches, although they have tried a lot, the results they have obtained are not good and have not been able to get a win. In the next round to welcome a strong opponent like Portland Timbers, it is difficult for the host to get good results.

Portland Timbers Overview

Austin vs Portland Timbers Prediction

Portland Timbers are highly appreciated this season, but the results they have obtained at this time are not really successful compared to the team’s expectations. Through 10 matches, they got 4 wins, 1 draw, and 5 losses. With 13 points, they are temporarily in 7th place on the Western rankings of the American Major. 

Recently, the away team is also facing many difficulties when they have not won 2 consecutive rounds. The next match has to march away from home, but the opponent is weaker, so this is a good opportunity for the away team to aim for victory.

With the given statistics, it will certainly be difficult to get more than 2 goals today. Because Portland Timbers themselves do not have a very special attack with only 13 goals in 10 appearances. Moreover, if it is true that the experts predict Austin to choose a safe play, then surely in the first half of the match it will be very difficult to open the scoring whether for the home team or the away team.
