Reno 1868 FC Travels to Oregon to Take on Portland Timbers 2
RENO, Nev. - Reno 1868 FC is looking to bounce back from last week's home loss to Phoenix Rising FC, traveling to Oregon to take on Portland Timbers 2 on Wednesday. Portland enters the match in second place in the USL's Western Conference, while Reno sits four points behind them in seventh.
Last week Reno dropped a home match for the first time all year, falling 3-0 to Phoenix Rising FC. Phoenix currently sits atop the USL's western conference, and is riding a seven-match winning streak.
The matchup with second-place Portland is Reno's second match in a row against a team in the top two of the conference.
Portland will be facing 1868 on a short turnaround, winning 2-0 at Orange County FC on Saturday. Portland is 3-0-3 in their last five matches, with the team last losing on April 30 at home to Rio Grande Valley. Portland has just one loss all year at home, racking up a 3-1-3 record.
Portland has actually scored less at home this season, averaging just 1.71 goal per game as opposed to 2.5 on the road.
Portland has played the Wednesday after a Saturday game once before this season, drawing El Paso 1-1 on Saturday, May 25 before beating Real Monarchs 2-1 on Wednesday May 29. Reno has only played two weekday games this season, last Tuesday's loss and a 2-2 draw at home against Tulsa in May.
The match kicks off at 7:00 p.m. PT from Providence Park, and will be live streamed on ESPN+.
