Portland Timbers Vs. Vancouver Whitecaps: Lineups As The Two Newest Teams Prepare To Meet For The First Time As MLS Sides

The Portland Timbers and the Vancouver Whitecaps meet for the first time as MLS sides this afternoon on the neutral ground of Starfire, where the Seattle Sounders are hosting the Cascadia Summit. Yesterday's opening game saw the Timbers defeat the Sounders 2-0, with Jorge Perlaza and Kenny Cooper the goalscorers. They both get a pass in today's action, as does Jack Jewsbury, Portland's recent signing who wore the armband last night.

While Portland have yet to lose a preseason match, Vancouver have struggled in the run up to First Kick. They've won three and drawn one while losing four. Yet preseason - even this Cascadia Summit - means nothing come March 15.

Portland Timbers Starting XI: Brown, Taylor, Danso, Horst, Braun, Pore, Moffat, Marcelin, Alhassan, Johnson, Umony

Vancouver Whitecaps Starting XI; Nolly; Rochat, DeMerit, Janicki, Leathers; Wagner, Dunfield, Thorrington, Knight; Harris, Tan
