2013 MLS Cup Playoffs: Portland Timbers vs. Real Salt Lake Game Time, TV Schedule, Predictions, & Open Thread

Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

With Sporting Kansas City crowned champions of the Eastern Conference, all eyes now turn to Portland to see if Real Salt Lake or the Portland Timbers will join them in MLS Cup.

After falling behind in the early moments, Sporting Kansas City settled down and dispatched the Houston Dynamo by a score of 2-1. With their spot in MLS Cup secure, all eyes now turn to Portland to see if the Timbers can make up a two goal deficit against Real Salt Lake. If anyone can catch RSL, though, it would be the Timbers. This should be a great game, so why don't you set your DVR to record The Walking Dead and watch this game with us?

Time: 9:00 PM Eastern Standard Time

Venue: Jeld-Wen Field, Portland, Oregon

TV/Streaming: ESPN, ESPN Deportes, and Watch ESPN for streaming.

Previews: Our friends at Stumptown Footy and RSL Soapbox have previews for your consumption.

Prediction: I think that Real Salt Lake will be able to fend off the Portland Timbers and advance to the MLS Cup Final, especially if they score the first goal. But Portland could always catch fire, especially with Chris Wingert and Alvaro Saborio out for RSL.

What are you drinking? I will be drinking a delicious Starr Hill Snow Blind, a doppelbock out of Charlottesville.

As always, this is your place for pre-game, in-game, and post-game chatter.
