The Portland Timbers will look to extend their six-game home unbeaten streak when they take on the Chicago Fire Wednesday night at Providence Park (8pm PT, TICKETS, ROOT SPORTS). Here are five numbers to know for #PORvCHI.
7 After his performance in Portland's 3-1 victory over Vancouver, midfielder Renzo Zambrano was named to the MLS Team of the Week for the first time. Zambrano is the seventh different Timbers player this season to be named to a team of the week.
0 Chicago is the only MLS team that the Timbers have never lost to in any competition. Portland is 4-0-5 in nine all-time matches against the Fire.
79 With a pair of assists in his last match, Diego Valeri now has 79 assists for his MLS career. That leaves Valeri one assist shy of Chris Henderson and Mauricio Cienfuegos for 12th place on the league's all-time assist leader charts.
3 Since the beginning of the 2018 MLS Cup Playoffs, Sebastián Blanco has scored three goals from outside the box in MLS play (regular season and playoffs). Only Sporting Kansas City's Johnny Russell has more goals in MLS from outside the 18-yard box in that span.
1X3 Just two minutes after coming off the bench against Vancouver, Tomás Conechny delivered the assist on Portland's third goal against Vancouver. Conechny became the third Timbers player this season to have an assist as a substitute, joining Blanco and Jeremy Ebobisse.
