Lineups

FC Dallas looks to win back-to-back games as they host the Portland Timbers in the final match for the month of March.

Both teams are coming into this game off wins last weekend. Portland picked up a 1-0 win over Austin FC, while FC Dallas scored two late goals to down Nashville SC.


FC Dallas notes:

Key player for FC Dallas - Alan Velasco - We’ll go back-to-back weeks here picking the young Argentine. He came off the bench last week and immediately made an impact and then scored a wonderful goal. Now the question will come, can he earn a starting spot for this one or is he better served off the bench?

Can we get on a run? - FC Dallas picked up its first win of the season with a 2-0 victory over Nashville on Saturday. Dallas managed consecutive wins only once in 2021, beating the Galaxy and Sporting Kansas City in late July.
