Two teams looking to jumpstart their 2024 campaigns will lock horns Saturday as Sporting Kansas City ventures west to face the Portland Timbers at Providence Park. Kickoff is slated for 9:30 p.m. CT with live coverage on MLS Season Pass via Apple TV, Sports Radio 810 WHB and La Grande 1340 AM.

Sporting found their footing in a 4-0 rout of FC Tulsa on Tuesday, cementing a spot in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup quarterfinals, and will aim to carry that momentum into Saturday’s league fixture against a Portland side that excels in attack but struggles in defense. We take a statistical look at the contest in our newest edition of By The Numbers, presented by Compass Minerals.
