Quick Strikes | Pair of Jorges have delivered for Portland

In the last road match of the 2019 regular season, the Portland Timbers will take on Sporting Kansas City Sunday at Children's Mercy Park (4:30pm PT, ROOT SPORTS). Here are five numbers to know for #PORvSKC in the latest edition of Quick Strikes. 

6 The Timbers have six road victories this season, just one off the club record for most away wins in a single season. Portland won seven road games in both 2014 and 2015. 

3 In their last match at Sporting KC, the Timbers defeated their hosts, 3-2, to win the 2018 Western Conference Championship and advance to the 2018 MLS Cup. Diego Valeri notched a brace, while Sebastián Blanco delivered a goal from outside the box. 

11 After his first career brace on Wednesday, Jeremy Ebobisse is up to 11 goals in 2019. Ebobisse's 11 goals are the most ever by a Timbers MLS draft pick. 

21+ In the last two matches, the Timbers have taken 29 and 21 shots, respectively. It is just the second time in Timbers history that the club has attempted 21 or more shots in consecutive games. 

4X2Both Jorge Moreira and Jorge Villafana have four assists in 2019, which is tied for third-most on the Timbers this season. The Timbers are one of two teams in MLS with two defenders with four or more assists in 2019.
