1+1 With an assist in Portland's last match, midfielder David Guzmán has scored a goal and had an assist in consecutive matches for the first time in his Timbers career.
95 Since the beginning of the 2016 season, no Western Conference team has scored more home goals (95) or has more home wins (31) than the Timbers. By contrast, no Western Conference team has scored fewer road goals in that timespan than the Rapids (31).
