On Tuesday night, the Portland Timbers will welcome CD Marathon to Providence Park for leg two of their Concacaf Champions League Round of 16 matchup. Fans will be there to watch it. The weather is supposed to be great. It’s gonna be a grand old time.
A way it could be even grander? If the Timbers take care of business and advance to the next round of the CCL. After a mildly disappointing but simultaneously pretty positive 2-2 draw in Honduras, the Timbers are in great position to do just that.
But it’s definitely not a given.
