Preview: SAFC looks to clinch home match with win over Portland


San Antonio FC will look to clinch a top three finish when they host the Portland Timbers 2 at Toyota Field this evening for their penultimate match of the 2017 season.

Last time out: SAFC earned a point in a 1-1 draw against the Tampa Bay Rowdies at Toyota Field on Saturday. Ever Guzman’s goal late in the match would give San Antonio a crucial point in the West standings, keeping their hopes of a top four finish alive.

Win and stay home: San Antonio can clinch a home playoff match at Toyota Field with a victory. If SAFC does win, they can officially clinch the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference with a win in their regular season finale against RGV FC on Saturday.

Against Portland: SAFC earned a 4-0 win over Portland earlier in the season with Billy Cesar Elizondo, Forbes, and Zach Herivaux all scoring tallies. Overall, San Antonio is 1-0-1 against the Timbers 2.

San Antonio FC and Portland Timbers 2 will kick things off at 7:30 p.m. from Toyota Field.

Match predictions:

Stephen Anderson: SAFC 3-0 POR

Samantha Garcia: SAFC 2-0 POR
