FC Dallas will look to remain unbeaten in Major League Soccer play when they host the Portland Timbers at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas on March 24. FC Dallas has a record of one win and one draw following their 3-0 win over the Seattle Sounders at Toyota Stadium this past Sunday.
The convincing win over the Sounders was extremely impressive when you consider the fact that Seattle has represented the Western Conference in the last two MLS Cup Finals (beating Toronto FC in 2016 and losing to Toronto FC in 2017). In Dallas's win over the Sounders, left winger Roland Lamah led them offensively with two goals and one assist. Lamah's first goal was the game winning goal in the 20th minute and then put FC Dallas up 3-0 in the 63rd minute with his second goal. Lamah's assist came on a goal by Maxi Urruti in the 58th minute.
Like the Sounders, the Timbers have had success in recent seasons. In 2017, the Timbers finished in first place in the Western Conference regular season standings with 53 points, but lost in the Western Conference semi-final to the Houston Dynamo 2-1 on aggregate. The Timbers are led by reigning MLS most valuable player Diego Valeri.
In other FC Dallas news, the team has traded Shaft Brewer to the Los Angeles Football Club for a fourth round draft pick in the 2019 MLS SuperDraft. Brewer is valuable because he plays forward and midfield.
