Portland is coming into this match on a two-game losing streak, including a 4-1 loss to Austin on July 2.
FC Dallas notes:
Key player for FC Dallas -
Last time out against the Timbers - One of the two wins this season for FC Dallas came back in May as they downed an exhausted Timbers side 4-1. Portland was in the middle of a Champions League run at that time and they had to rely on a heavily rotated squad.
Just bad on the road - FC Dallas has lost its first five away matches of the 2021 season, being outscored 12-2 in those games. This is the second-longest road losing streak to start a season for Dallas who lost its first six road games of the 2000 season.
OUT: Matt Hedges (hip injury), Beni Redzic (ankle), Kyle Zobeck (quad injury), Jose Martinez (thigh injury)
On Loan: none
International duty: Bryan Acosta (Honduras - Gold Cup)
Portland Timbers notes:
