Felipe Mora, center forward recognized in Mexico for playing in clubs like Cruz Azul and Pumas, the 28 year old striker now in his new stage in the MLS was consecrated as the top scorer of Timbers with 11 goals in 30 games, the Chilean striker stands out for staying in the area looking for the goal, he is a player that can cause many complications to the Colorado defense, so William Yarbrough, Colorado's goalkeeper will have to be ready to stop the Chilean's shots.

Colorado's player to watch

Jonathan Lewis, Colorado's center forward is the second best scorer of his club with 7 goals, the American is distinguished for being very agile and fast, for the duel against Timbers it will be essential to generate danger and Lewis, who in his last game of the regular season closed with a double against LAFC, must continue with the goal-scoring inertia to get the pass to the Western conference final.

Portland Timbers

Timbers the recognized team famous for the show they manage to do in their stadium, came fourth in the Playoffs table and faced the Minnesota squad in a match that started down on the scoreboard, however they managed to turn it around and got the pass with a score of 3-1, with a great performance by Sebastian Blanco, who scored a double in the second half, prior to the game against Minnesota, Timbers was positioned in the middle of the table to access the Playoffs, despite having the same wins as the leader, their campaign was not as solid since they registered 13 defeats, becoming one of the qualifiers with more defeats.
3:05 PMa year ago

Colorado Rapids

The season for the Colorado Rapids was intense from start to finish, their leadership in the last rounds was at stake and only one point separated them from their closest pursuer, Colorado had a season with very good numbers, 17 wins, 10 draws and 7 defeats, undoubtedly a very good season, One of the strengths of the Colorado team is their defense, with 35 goals against, they are one of the lowest scoring defenses of the season. Although their offense is not one of the most lethal in the conference, their 51 goals support their good performances.
3:00 PMa year ago

The finalists are getting closer and closer to being known.

The MLS is reaching its end, the teams must now show all their strengths to continue on the road to the Final, the remaining eight teams will face each other in very close duels in which any mistake they make could leave them out, the leaders of each conference, New England and Colorado, must show why they have been the tournament's leaders although with several weeks without playing, it could affect the pace and inertia with which they will close the regular season, even so their rivals in turn should not be confident and take the field as if there were no tomorrow.
