FC Dallas vs Portland Timbers: How to watch local and online

FC Dallas are looking to regain some positive momentum when the Portland Timbers visit Providence Park on Saturday night.

Both teams had games during the week, with Dallas losing 1-0 in Seattle and the Timbers drawing 1-1 at home to Nashville. At the moment, the two teams are separated by three points in the playoff race.


FC Dallas Notes:

Key player for FC Dallas – Sebastian Lletget – He may only have joined his new team-mates yesterday but if he can come off the bench for 20-30 minutes in this game and impress it would go a long way towards scoring points in this important away game .

Get a rare win in Oregon – The away side have won just two of the 25 regular-season matches ever between these two clubs. FC Dallas have had just one win in Portland, a 3-1 win in April 2016, while the Timbers have recorded seven wins and three draws in the other 10 regular-season meetings at Providence Park.

Strong beginnings – FC Dallas have made strong defensive starts in both halves this season. Dallas have conceded just one goal in the first 15 minutes of games, with only Union and Red Bulls (none) conceding less, while no team has conceded fewer goals in the first 15 minutes of the second half than Dallas (2, with NYCFC, LAFC).

Portland Notes:

Solid at home this season – The Timbers extended their unbeaten run to nine games (W4, W5) with a 1-1 draw with Nashville on Wednesday, the longest active streak in MLS. Portland have had three double-digit regular-season unbeaten runs in club history, most recently a 15-game run in April-August 2018.

Down but not out – The Timbers have fallen behind at some point in five of the nine games in their current unbeaten streak and have accumulated at least a point in every game. This is Portland’s first time in MLS history that they have avoided defeat in five straight games they have been behind and the first team to do so this season.
