By The Numbers: Sporting KC vs Portland Timbers

Sporting Kansas City will face the Portland Timbers for the fourth time in MLS (regular season) on Saturday night. The two teams have never played to a draw with Sporting KC winning the first two meetings, both in 2011, and Portland winning last season's match.
