Howdy live from high above Jeld-Wen Field(where is is very cold). Tonight in the second match of the Portland Preseason Tournament and FC Dallas will take on the hometown Portland Timbers. Both teams drew their first match of the tournament, though in much different circumstances.
As you may remember, FCD was held to a 0-0 draw with Swedish side AIK while Portland had an enthralling 3-3 draw with the San Jose Earthquakes. While Sunday's match was one for the starters, I expect both teams to play many more reserves tonight with Dallas potentially starting a team with 7 or 8 changes from Sunday.
What will be very interesting to see is if Eric Hassli makes his first big start for FC Dallas as he joined the team on Sunday. We should also see a heavy dose of Michel, Bradlee Baladez, Andrew Jacobson, Stephen Keel and London Woodberry.
The match kicks off at 9:30pm central time and you can watch it right here. We'll have the lineups and all the action shortly.
