Both teams comes into this match off losses on Decision Day this past Sunday. Portland used a b-squad in their loss at Vancouver, while FC Dallas dropped points on the road at Colorado.
FC Dallas notes:
Last time against Portland. The two sides met twice earlier this season, both ending in draws.
Return to playoffs. FC Dallas is 14-21-8 in postseason games and 3-3-3 since Oscar Pareja became head coach in 2014.
That short rest feeling. Playing on four days of rest or less this season, Dallas is 4-1-1.
Key player for FC Dallas: Michael Barrios - He had his moments last week against SKC but Dallas will need a monster game from him to lock up that number two slot.
