PREVIEW

Who’s the best in the West? That’s the big question up for discussion on Saturday evening when Supporters’ Shield-leading Portland Timbers travel to face lone remaining unbeaten team of 2017, FC Dallas, who sit second in the Western Conference. Despite their high-flying form, both teams will be making due without some key players. On the Portland side, it was revealed on Wednesday that neither star playmaker Diego Valeri nor starting goalkeeper Jake Gleeson would feature on Saturday due to injury. The hosts, meanwhile, continue to anticipate the return of star playmaker Mauro Diaz, who will not be ready for a while longer, but did return to training this week.
