Tuesday evening, Alpha United and the Portland Timbers square off in the CONCACAF Champions League match. The Portland Timbers split their squad, leaving some of their more veteran players at home to prepare for the derby against the Seattle Sounders, while a mostly reserve-dominated group heads to Guyana for the CONCACAF Champions League match.
“We have a group that we’re going to play that will be – for the most part – fresh to hopefully get a result in Guyana,” Portland Timbers Caleb Porter said, via Fox Sports. “We’ll hopefully have a group that’s fresh and ready to beat Seattle.”
“For me, it’s just squad rotation,” Porter added. “It’s normal things that you have to manage in a season. It’s not easy. But you can’t wing it. You can’t just get caught trying to figure it out when it’s too late to figure it out.”
