Portland Timbers survive a second-half comeback from Seattle Sounders to record a 3-2 victory to qualify for the final of the MLS Western Conference.

Portland Timbers have recorded a 3-2 victory over Seattle Sounders to progress through to the final of the MLS Western Conference.

After leading 2-1 from the first leg, Portland stormed into a 3-0 advantage after 47 minutes, and although Seattle pulled two goals back, the Timbers held on.

The home side's opening goal came from Will Johnson, who netted from the penalty spot after a handball, with Diego Valeri doubling the lead just before the break.

Mamadou Danso appeared to have put the match to bed two minutes after the break with Portland's third, but two goals in three minutes from DeAndre Yedlin and Eddie Johnson gave the visitors hope.

However, Portland held on to progress through to the final, where they will play Real Salt Lake.
