The Portland Timbers and Minnesota United open the 2017 MLS season on Friday night. 

Minnesota United is making its league debut as an expansion franchise. Minnesota is one of two expansion clubs debuting this season, along with Atlanta United. 

Portland is looking to return to the upper echelon of MLS after winning MLS Cup in 2015 but failing to qualify for the playoffs last season.
