FC Dallas to Win

The last time these two sides faced off each other in Texas, the hosts edged out Timbers in a 2-1 win. Lucchi Gonzalez will be looking forward to a repeat of the result, especially after their rivals were involved in CONCACAF Champions League engagements during midweek. Couple this with their injury nightmares that has seen six players on the treatment table.

Total Goals Over 2.5

In their last two meetings at the Toyota Stadium, the Over 2.5 was realized. Continuing the trend, both sides have seen three or more goals in their recent MLS engagements. There is optimism regarding another goalscoring bonanza but it should be taken with a grain of salt. Portland will like to keep the scorers’ activity to a minimum given their recent form and have yet to open their away scoring tally.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

The Portland defence has conceded in their recent two competitive outings, while a similar result was observed in FC Dallas’ trip to San Jose. We are still early in the season and both outfits have yet to settle on their preferred backlines. With the visitors suffering from an injury crisis, they will be without their preferred options, leaving room open for Dallas to exploit their replacements.

Dallas vs Portland Timbers Fixture Preview

FC Dallas

The Toros finished 6th in the Western Conference and 11th overall in the 2020 MLS campaign. Lucchi Gonzalez would have wanted an improved start to the 2021 campaign but his men have failed to live up to the challenge. Their away form remains capricious and will to make the most of their home fixtures. The Dallas faithful have something to cheer about in the form of Ricardo Pepi. The 18-year-old forward scored in his substitute appearance, hinting at his unexposed potential.

Portland Timbers

The Timbers finished third in the Western Conference but like the Toros, suffered in the post-season to finish 8th overall. With continental engagements to keep them busy in midweek, Giovanni Savarese has a tough task of keeping his players in shape and fighting for honours. It has proven to be a tough task as six players are receiving treatment from the club’s medical staff after just three competitive outings. Felipe Andres Mora Aliaga finished last season with seven goals to his name and was on target against Club America. The Chilean forward converted from the spot seven minutes into added time to salvage a point for Portland Timbers.
