Portland Timbers vs FC Dallas
Major League Soccer
Date: Monday 1st July 2019
Kick off at 04:00 UK/ 05:00 CET
Venue: Providence Park.
Early on Monday Portland Timbers will take on FC Dallas at Providence Park and both teams will be searching for all three points.
The problem for Portland is that they are bottom of the Western Conference after only winning 5 games this season and that includes losing 2 of their last 3 matches.
At home Portland have only played 2 games all season and this seems to be a factor in their league positioning. The nightmare schedule has not changed for them and they will be playing many games back at home.
FC Dallas do not look as strong as last season but they are in 4th place with 26 points and well within the play offs. Form has been good but not brilliant as they have drawn 2 of their last four games.
But the one stat that sticks out is that FC Dallas have gone their last 4 games on the road with no wins and a revamped and spirited Portland will be out to get the win.
Portland Timbers vs FC Dallas: Head to Head

Portland Timbers vs FC Dallas: Prediction
We shouldn’t take too much notice of where Portland are in the league with an amazing batch of games to now be played at home they have every chance to start picking up points.
It is one of the main reasons that the club have been installed as slight odds on favourites to win the game and we are going to go with that.
Also, Dallas are no travelling well at this time so this looks like a solid choice to take on.
