PT Vs RSLC Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Portland hit a rut after torching their way to the pinnacles of the Eastern Conference.
With three wins in their first four matches of the Eastern Conference, there just seemed no stopping Portland Timbers. The side’s advent into the 2020-21 edition of the MLS was as emphatic as they come, a start which alluded towards pathbreaking times ahead.
However, with a draw and defeat in their last couple of affairs, Portland’s rampant march into the pinnacles of the points tally has been curtailed. Slipping to fourth spot after being thumped in their first defeat of the season, the 3-0 loss to Seattle Sounders brought to light the issues entrapping the side at the moment.
Where Portland have waned in form, Real Salt Lake make a foray into this one in the wake of their most profound attacking display till now. Scoring more than double of the goals they had managed in five ties, Real Salt Lake’s 4-1 win against Colorado Rapids took them to within just the sole point of Portland.
With a second straight win in the conference taking Real Salt Lake above Portland, the side is set to come hot out of the blocks today. And with a profuse show of attacking might the last time around, they’ll perturb Portland all across the tie today.
We envisage this one curtailing in a draw with neither side managing to string together the winning goal in its favour.

PT Vs RSLC Dream11 Goal-Keeper
We’ll be beginning our Dream 11 side with the pick of Steve Clark from Portland Timbers. Despite being part of a defence which has been hit for 10 goals, he’s managed to stand tall and make a name for himself given his resillinace and resolve.
PT Vs RSLC Dream11 Defenders
They may have only foraged their attacking acumen against Colorado Rapids but Real Salt Lake have been sensational in defence all across the season. Even at a time when the team had no answers in attack, the defence helped the team traverse rough waters to take them out of what could have been a really precarious situation.
Having allowed a measly 4 goals past them in 6 matches, it was only rightfully to entrust the defensive picks from the side. We begin the pick of rightback Aaron Herrera whose ever willingness to canter his way into the side’s attacking plays has seen him come up with the one assist.
Partnering up with him are Nedum Onuoha and Donny Toia, two names who have clobbered side’s in their attacking forays.
PT Vs RSLC Dream11 Midfielders
Portland Timbers’ attack has worked assiduously to make up for a paper thin defence. Picking up the pieces, the side has gone onto score 8 goals, ones which see them currently sit as high as fourth place.
And leading the side’s gallop in attack has been top scorer Diego Valeri to see him become a must have pick for us today. The electric and diminutive pairing of Marvin Loria and Diego Chara slots its way next to him, two names whose ability to control the park with their quick ball movements has helped the side turnover possession.
Real Salt Lake will see, Damir Kreilach with the two goals and Maikel Chang who has the two assists form a daunting and imperious partnership for us.
PT Vs RSLC Dream11 Strikers
Venturing into our side next to the two is striker Corey Baird. He’s scored on one occasion for the club, a figure which can easily rise given the dreary nature of defence he’ll be facing off against.
The flair filled Sebastian Blanco will see his endeavours result in a place our segment for the impending tie.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Scorers of the two goals apiece, Damir will captain our side while Valeri is the vice-captain.
