There are only three Cascadia Cup matches left in the 2013 MLS season, and it's still anybody's Cup to win. Some teams have more work to do than others. For example, the Portland Timbers need to win their remaining two Cascadia matches to defend the Cup. In that scenario, the Timbers would still need a Whitecaps win/draw against Seattle on October 9th in Seattle. 

Heading into Sunday's match against Vancouver, the Timbers currently sit in third position on three points.
