MLS: Five Predictions For The 2016 Season

Portland Wins the Supporters’ Shield

The Portland Timbers got hot at the right time during the 2015 season, making an incredible run through the playoffs and ultimately winning the MLS Cup.

Though they have lost a few big names, the Timbers added depth to their squad and will look to build on past success in the new season. With a strong defense and an exciting attacking line, Caleb Porter’s side will be the best regular season team in the MLS.

Diego Valeri will lead the Timbers to a Supporters’ Shield but the club will ultimately come up short in the playoffs.
