Quick Strikes | Five numbers to know ahead of #PORvMIN

In a match with major playoff implications, the Portland Timbers will host Minnesota United FC on Sunday afternoon at Providence Park (1:03pm PT, TICKETS, ESPN). Here are five numbers to know for #PORvMIN in the latest Quick Strikes. 

4X10 For the fourth time in his MLS career, Diego Chara recorded 10 tackles in Portland's last match. All of four of those matches have been since the 2014 season with no other MLS player hitting the feat more than twice in that time span. 

90 Against the Red Bulls on Wednesday, Sebastián Blanco played in his 90th MLS match in his Timbers career. Blanco is now tied for the 10th-most MLS games played by a Timbers player. 

93 Tomás Conechny started at Providence Park for the first time in his MLS career on Wednesday night. Conechny is the 93rd different player to start for the Timbers at Providence Park in MLS play.

8 In two home matches against Minnesota United, the Timbers have scored eight goals. Diego Valeri leads the way with three goals in those two games. 

90 Defender Jorge Moreira leads the Timbers in tackles with 90 this season. Moreira is on pace to be the third different player to lead the club in tackles in MLS play joining Chara (seven times) and Alvas Powell (once).
