Sebastián Blanco, Timbers at Fire, 3.31.18

The Timbers will finish up their longest road trip in club history when they face Orlando City SC Sunday at Orlando City Stadium (1pm PT, ESPN). Here are five numbers to know for #ORLvPOR in the latest Quick Strikes. 


96.4 In his second start of the season, Diego Chara delivered one of the most prolific passing games of his career in the team's 2-2 draw against the Chicago Fire. The midfielder completed 53 of his attempted 55 passes for a completion percentage of 96.4. It was Chara's best passing accuracy ever for a match in which he attempted at least 50 passes. 


4 With three goals and an assist, Sebastián Blanco has been a part of all four of the Timbers goals this season. Blanco is the first Timbers player to have scored or assisted on each of the first goals in a Timbers MLS season. 


2 The last time Portland and Orlando squared off, midfielder Diego Valeri scored two goals on way to a 3-0 Timbers victory last September at Providence Park. Orlando City also had two men sent off in the match. 


1 In the first MLS start of his career, Andrés Flores delivered an assist during Portland's 2-2 draw with Chicago last week. Flores is the first Timbers player to have an assist in their first MLS start since Jeremy Ebobisse accomplished the same feat last year against Vancouver. 


18 Since the beginning of last season, the Timbers have scored at least one goal in 18 different away matches. That is three more than any other MLS team in that span.
