Play was stopped as the Timbers medical group took care of Blanco who rested on the ground. Minutes later while resting on the sideline, Blanco burst into tears while favoring his ideal knee.
He would be substituted out of the match in the 5th minute and be changed by Marvin Loría making Blanco disqualified to return.
As Loría took the pitch, Blanco was being brought off by a stretcher.

Blanco has been probably the Timbers’ best gamer this season, winning the MLS is Back Competition MVP after scoring 3 objectives and dispensing five helps inside the Orlando bubble. In eight regular-season looks this season, the Timbers designated gamer has two goals and 5 helps.
