Post-Slab Pint: Timbers 1-1 Orlando City

After a short break (we don’t talk about the FC Dallas game), welcome back to the Post-Slab Pint, where I break down (pint in hand) the good and the bad from each Portland Timbers’ result. This week, I’m breaking down the Timbers’ 1-1 draw with Orlando City.

I’ll start with the positive aspects of the Timbers’ performance:

Cristhian Paredes marked his return from injury with a goal from the spot and an overall solid performance. After missing the previous week because of a slight hamstring injury, Cristhian Paredes showed why he is the clear choice to partner with Diego Chara at this moment in time.
