In the first leg of the Audi 2018 MLS Cup Playoffs Western Conference Championship, the Portland Timbers shut out Sporting Kansas City in a 0-0 draw Sunday at Providence Park. Here are three key #StatMan takeaways from #PORvSKC.
2 For the second time as a Timbers player, goalkeeper Jeff Attinella delivered a clean sheet in the MLS Cup Playoffs. Attinella is the second Timbers goalkeeper in all eras of the club to have multiple career shutouts (Josh Wicks).
7 Diego Valeri was credited with seven chances created in the match, which is the second-most chances created by a Timbers player in an MLS playoff game. The only match with more chances created by a single player was when Valeri had eight against SKC in 2015.
1 The Timbers held Sporting Kansas City to one shot in the first half of the match. The one shot attempted was the fewest in a first half this season for SKC and just the third time since 2010 that SKC had been held to one shot or fewer in the first 45.
