Match preview

Will Portland Timbers' unbeaten start to the campaign continue?

Giovanni Savarese's side began 2022 with back-to-back draws, first 2-2 against New England Revolution and then 1-1 at LAFC.

In the latter, at Banc of California Stadium, the Timbers came agonisingly close to a victory, conceding the equaliser in the 93rd minute.

But, last weekend, Portland did get three points on the board, beating then table-topping Austin FC 1-0 at Providence Park.

Bill Tuiloma getting the only goal, heading home Yimmi Chará's free-kick.

Now, will last season's MLS Cup runners-up make it back-to-back wins?

FC Dallas meanwhile lifted the Supporters' Shield in 2016 but have actually failed to make the post-season in two of the subsequent five campaigns.

Nico Estévez's side though enjoyed their first victory of 2022 last weekend, beating Nashville 2-0 in Frisco.

Franco Jara opened the scoring with an 85th minute penalty before, just moments later, record-signing Alan Velasco dribbled past everybody and fired into the roof of the net.

The Argentinian teenager showing the talent he has that persuaded Dallas to part-with $7 million for his services in the off-season.

Overall, Dallas now have four points in total, having drawn with Toronto and then lost to New England Revolution in Foxborough.

Will there be a winner at Toyota Stadium?
