For the 100th time in the history of their storied rivalry which began in NASL back in 1975, the Portland Timbers and Seattle Sounders, two sides currently heading in completely opposite directions, will do battle on Sunday (4 p.m. ET) at Providence Park.

Portland enter Sunday’s milestone clash winners of three straight (their only wins of the season) for the first time since their first three games of 2017, while the Sounders, bruised and battered as they are, sit bottom of the Western Conference with just two wins on the still-semi-young campaign.

Among the injured and unavailable for Seattle are Nicolas Lodeiro, Osvaldo Alonso, Roman Torres, Will Bruin and Victor Rodriguez.

Seattle holds the advantage in all-time meetings between the sides (50W-14D-35L) after going unbeaten against Portland in 2017 (one win, two draws in league play; victory in the U.S. Open Cup), though they haven’t won in Portland since August 2014 (three losses, one draw).
