In a match of unbeaten teams, the Portland Timbers scored three unanswered goals to come-from-behind to defeat the Houston Dynamo 4-2 Saturday night. Here are three #StatMan takeaways from the match.
10 Three games into the 2017 MLS season and Portland has scored 10 goals. The 10 goals are the most the club has ever scored over the first three matches of the season since the club's founding in 1975, passing the previous mark of seven set in 2005.
41 With his first goal of the evening, Diego Valeri became the second Timbers MLS player to score 40-plus goals for the club, joining Fanendo Adi. Valeri and Adi join John Bain and Byron Alvarez as the only Timbers players in all eras of the club to reach the 40-goal plateau.
7 Dating back to last season, Adi has scored in each of the last seven home matches the Timbers have played. Portland has won all seven of those matches.
103 No one had more touches in the match than the 103 by midfielder David Guzmán. In addition to constantly being on the ball, Guzman created a game-high four chances, scored a goal and notched an assist.
