Diego Valeri scored two goals in the Timbers’ crucial 3-0 win over the San Jose Earthquakes on Wednesday night to keep them in the playoff hunt.
In the 73rd minute, Valeri scored his second of the night and sealed the win for the Timbers. Valeri started a counter attack down the right wing then played a pass for fellow midfielder Darlington Nagbe who found Rodney Wallace making a run on the left side of the box. Wallace’s shot was blocked by Busch, but spilled out to the feet of Valeri who tapped it into the back of the net.
The Timbers will host Real Salt Lake on Friday, October 17 at 10:00 p.m. ET on NBCSN.
