SEATTLE —

When Major League Soccer decided the third week of the regular season was going to feature matchups of the league's best rivalries, they made sure Seattle facing Portland was the centerpiece.

It might seem a little early in the schedule, but the heated competition in Cascadia is already set to begin on Saturday night when the Sounders host the Timbers.

Seattle has two tasks on Saturday: Erase the taste of a disappointing season-opening home loss to Montreal and start down the road of re-claiming the Cascadia Cup that Portland won a year ago. The Timbers have not won in Seattle since joining the MLS and got just one point out of two home games to start the season.
