We've gotten through the hectic and rather painful month of May and now we're into June. The sun is starting to shine a little longer during the day and hopefully that means some good things are on the horizon for FC Dallas here as they hope to turn their season back around.
Colorado Rapids - home - June 7 (7:30pm)
The road back to the win column doesn't get easy with the first opponent of the month. Oscar Pareja's old club will be out for some revenge. The Rapids right now are flying pretty high as they have won a couple big wins as of late. Dillon Powers and Deshorn Brown continue to lead the charge there while the defense is still pretty stout with Drew Moor in the back.
Portland Timbers - away - June 11 (9:00pm)
Another midweek game but at least this one comes right on the heels of the World Cup and the break. Portland has been up and down this season and while they're still a quality bunch, they have struggled to get wins of any kind this season. Defensively they are still a mess but playing on that turf and at Providence Park is never an easy out.
San Antonio Scorpions - home - June 17 (8:00pm) - USOC
The lone USOC match won't be an easy one either. San Antonio is on a bit of a hot streak in the NASL at the moment and there is always a tricky factor about these early round USOC games too. FCD has dropped these at home in the past to lower division teams and it should be said that San Antonio has won against MLS sides in this competitions in the past.
Columbus Crew - away - June 28 (7:00pm)
The final regular season game of the month is in Ohio against the Crew. Gregg Berhalter's side has been good and bad just like FCD has been this season. As of right now they have only one win in their last ten matches. Currently they sit outside of the playoff zone in the East. If FCD were to get road points this month, it might be here more so than in Portland.
At this point, it will be all about getting that first win. Stopping the bleeding in this eight-game winless rut is what FCD has to focus on here. It starts with Colorado this weekend and if the club can some how earn three points there, I do think there is a slight chance that they could earn upwards of six or even seven points in June.
But it the trend continues, we may be looking at another month were the team only comes away with a point or two.
The USOC match is also important as well but we'll touch on that next week.
What do you all think will happen in June? One points? Two? Six? The full nine?
