Here are Colin's Keys for the 'Caps to start defending their Cascadia Cup with a home win over Portland Timbers.

Put them under pressure

Portland have scored nine goals this season. But they've also conceded eight.

They've looked better going forward than they do defensively.

We need yo put their back four under pressure.

Back in action

The 'Caps looked great in Dallas, and they lost two key contributors to international duty.

The returns of Andrés Cubas and Fafà Picault come at a good time.

They provide both more options, and more quality.

The reaction

Last weekend's 2-1 home loss to RSL was not the standard this team expects.

We will need a positive reaction to that performance and result.

From both players and supporters.
