United travels to Portland looking to stay perfect vs. Timbers

By AccessWDUN Staff

PORTLAND, Ore. – Atlanta United travels to Providence Park to take on Portland Timbers on Sunday.

The match is set to kick-off at 5:30 p.m. EST.

Atlanta holds a 2-0-2 all-time record against the Timbers: 1-0-1 at home and 1-0-1 on the road, out-scoring Portland a combined six goals to two. Atlanta defeated Portland in its last visit to Providence Park, winning 2-0 on Aug. 18, 2019.

Atlanta fell 4-1 in its last match to Philadelphia Union. Andrew Gutman scored his third goal in the month of August by diving head-first toward a loose ball in the box after an Andre Blake save.

Gutman and Juanjo Purata are both one goal away from becoming the highest-scoring defender over a single season in Atlanta United history, according to Opta. Both are tied with Franco Escobar, who also scored three goals in the 2018 season.

Over the last five matches, Atlanta has the most total shots (98) and the second-most shots on goal (35) in MLS.

Portland returns home to Providence Park after a 2-1 road victory against Austin FC. Bill Tuiloma scored the first goal for the Timbers with a header on a set piece. The New Zealander has scored the second-most headed goals in MLS with five, only Brandon Vázquez has scored more (six).
