It has the MVP runner-up, Miguel Almiron.
It finished with more points than the Timbers, 69-54, despite playing in what was considered the tougher conference.
None of that matters when it comes to playing a single game.
“It’s going to be a difficult game,” Almiron said. “The Timbers are coming with everything they have. It will be a beautiful game, a game everyone will want to watch.”
Speaking earlier this week, Portland coach Giovanni Savarese said, “Not only satisfied to get to the Cup, but to give everything we have in this final match. Also, we understand very clearly that we have a very good team in front of us, a team that will be strong, a team that will have a great crowd with a great coach an d good players, and that is even more motivation.”
