The Portland Timbers journey to Florida this Saturday to face Inter Miami FC at DRV PNK Stadium (5pm PT, FOX 12 PLUS). Here are some key numbers to know ahead of the match.


The Timbers will play at Miami for the first time. Portland and Miami have only faced off once before – a 1-0 win for the Timbers at Providence Park on Oct. 3, 2021.


Portland recorded its highest possession rate of the season on May 22 versus Philadelphia (65.85%). In addition, the Timbers also posted their best passing accuracy of the year with 84.95%.


Yimmi Chara has played a team-high 1,245 minutes this season. That ranks as third-most minutes played in MLS and second most amongst field players ahead of week 14 action.


The Timbers lead the league in interceptions made this season with 174. Claudio Bravo is the individual leader on the team (19), followed by Bill Tuiloma, Cristhian Paredes and Diego Chara with 18 each.


Two Timbers have been called up for the upcoming international break. Bill Tuiloma will join New Zealand for their Qatar 2022 Qualifying match and Pablo Bonilla will join Venezuela for two friendly matches.
