Portland Timbers vs FC Dallas
Major League Soccer
Date: Monday, 23 November 2020
Kick-off at 3:00 UK/ 4:00 CET
Venue: Providence Park.
The Toros are one of the worst teams in the playoffs, and the only reason they made it to the post-season is due to their form early in the season. They have been struggling to secure wins at least once in a while lately, and the problem is even worse once they are on the road.
Meanwhile, Giovanni Savarese’s men had won the ‘MLS is Back’ tournament, and they are also one of the favorites to lift the MLS Cup as well. The reason being – they really are a different animal under pressure, and especially in knockouts.
Moreover, they also have a good h2h record against this rival at this venue.
As such, expect Portland Timbers to post the win this Monday.
