Sounders FC vs. Portland Timbers, lineups

portland away2 2012.jpgPORTLAND—It’s a beautiful Saturday afternoon in the Rose City.

NBC cameras and talent are here for this network broadcast, the first for an MLS game since 2008. The Cascadia Cup is also here to award to the Timbers Army in the event of a Portland win.

The big question for the Sounders, who can clinch a playoff berth with a win and a San Jose win, is the availability of midfielders Mauro Rosales (quad) and Christian Tiffert (ankle). I’ll post lineups here when they become available.

Note: Kickoff will be at about 12:51 p.m. today.
