Sebastián Blanco nearly had a hat trick – two goals scored and set up an own goal to benefit Portland – and the Timbers drew 4-4 with Minnesota United FC Saturday afternoon in St. Paul. Here are three key numbers to remember from the match.
Sebastián Blanco set a new club record for the fastest goal scored in Portland’s MLS era when he tallied :13 seconds into the match against Minnesota. It was the earliest goal scored in the league in 2022 and the fourth fastest in MLS history.
Midfielder Diego Chara made his 350th appearance for the Portland Timbers Saturday. He is just the seventh player to make 350 appearances for a single club in MLS history (regular season & playoffs).
Portland extended its unbeaten streak to eight matches, posting a record of 4-0-4 over the stretch. During the run, Portland has outscored its opponents 18-10, scoring multiple goals in six of those eight matches.
