Quick Strikes | 84 days later, Timbers road trip to come to end in Philadelphia

The Portland Timbers will play their last match of their record, season-opening 12-game road trip when they face the Philadelphia Union, Saturday at Talen Energy Stadium (4:30pm PT, ROOT SPORTS). Here are five numbers to know for #PHIvPOR in the latest Quick Strikes. 

5 With his goal against Houston, Brian Fernandez became the fifth player to score in his MLS debut while playing for the Timbers. The last Timbers player to do so was Gastón Fernández in 2014.  

3X5 Midfielder Sebastián Blanco has notched five or more assists in each of his three seasons with the Timbers. Blanco is one of four MLS players with at least five assists in each of the last three seasons. 

84 Saturday's match takes place 84 days after the Timbers started their road trip with a 3-3 draw at the Colorado Rapids on March 2. Over the course of the next 84 days following Saturday's match, Portland will play nine home games and four away matches. 

9 Defender Bill Tuiloma has started nine consecutive matches for the club, the longest streak of his MLS career. Tuiloma is the only Timbers player to have played every minute of the club's last nine matches. 

36 Since making his Timbers debut on March 31, defender Jorge Moreira leads the club in tackles made with 36. The 36 tackles place Moreira in sixth-place for most in MLS this season.
