Quick Strikes | Timbers forward Fanendo Adi likes to score on Sundays

The Portland Timbers welcome Toronto FC, who are playing its eighth consecutive road match to start the season, to Providence Park for a midday clash Sunday (12:30pm PT, ESPN). Here are five numbers to know for #PORvTOR in the latest Quick Strikes. 

90 Sunday's match will be the 90th MLS regular season game played at Providence Park. Portland has a home record of 42-17-30 in regular season matches at home since joining MLS in 2011. 

15 At the beginning of the 2015 season, MLS started MLS Soccer Sunday for its two nationally televised matches on both ESPN Network and FOX Sports. Since then, Fanendo Adi has scored 15 goals on matches played on Sundays, which is the third-most on Sundays behind only David Villa and Kei Kamara.

67 After his assist Wednesday, Darlington Nagbe now has 67 points for the Timbers (23 goals, 21 assists) in his career, which ties him with McKinley Tennyson for eighth-most points in club history. Nagbe is three points behind teammate Fanendo Adi (31 goals, eight assists) for seventh all-time.  

6 Portland substitutes have scored six goals in 2016, which is the most in MLS for a single team. Among the other 19 MLS teams, there have been 26 total goals scored by substitutes

4 Toronto hasn’t played in Portland since Sept. 7, 2013 when the Timbers defeated TFC by a 4-0 scoreline. The four-goal margin of victory is the largest home win in MLS play for Portland.
