FC Dallas returns to action tonight with the first of two games this week. Up first is the Portland Timbers who are nearly as hot as FC Dallas is to start the season. Both the Timbers and the Hoops have not lost a game since Week 2 in Major League Soccer. Portland has a few more draws than wins at this point but only sit six points back of FC Dallas in the standings.
Dallas has never lost at home to the Timbers, going 2-0-1 in all three meetings with the Rose City gang. Two of those meetings have been absolute blowouts with a 4-0 win in 2011 followed up by a 5-0 thrashing last year.
Match day/time: Wednesday, May 8, 8:00pm CT.
Venue: FC Dallas Stadium
