Things should heat up under the lights at the MLS is Back tournament Saturday when Houston battles Portland in a Group F showdown. Known for playing highly entertaining matches, the Western Conference foes both enter the game hoping to secure three points in their respective quests to reach the competition's knockout stage in Orlando.
Portland comes into this game fresh off a 2-1 victory against the Los Angeles Galaxy in its opener. Sebastian Blanco was brilliant in the win, setting up Jeremy Ebobisse to give the Timbers an early second-half lead before scoring the eventual game-winning goal. Portland dodged several quality Los Angeles opportunities throughout the match, including a missed penalty kick from Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez, to pick up all the points. On the other side, Houston had to be kicking itself after its disappointing 3-3 draw against Los Angeles Football Club in its tournament debut. Trailing 1-0 against LAFC, the Dynamo score three unanswered goals to take a 3-1 lead before giving up two goals during a brutal six-minute span in the second half to settle for the lone point.
