New York Red Bulls vs Portland Timbers Live Match Thread

Stephen Keel scored an own-goal the first time New York and Portland met this season. With Miller and Marquez both missing tonight, Keel will have to be in top form against the Timbers who are undefeated in their last five matches.

As if there weren't enough to say about the New York Red Bulls heading into tonight's match against the Portland Timbers, as of this writing there is a bit of buzz around the starting back four for New York, as the lineup card apparently says Tim Ream will be starting at left back.  Luke Rodgers and Thierry Henry will be paired up top, but no one can be sure how long Rodgers will be able to last as he is still returning to full match fitness and fighting off his lingering foot issues.

Rafa Marquez won't be starting or on the bench as he is suspended by the team for his post-game comments Wednesday night.  Roy Miller and Brian Nielsen will both dress and be available on the left side if called upon by Hans Backe.   

If you aren't making it out to Red Bull Arena tonight (we hear there should be a great turnout), turn on MSG at 7:30 pm and catch the match there.  You can also check out the more comprehensive match preview from earlier today and join us below in the comments section as the Red Bulls go for three points or face a much earlier than anticipated end to their season.
