Story Lines

Arrest the Slide: FC Dallas has lost two games on the bounce after winning its first two under new interim head coach Peter Luccin. Dallas let a late lead slip in Seattle last week, eventually falling 3-2 in what could have been the club's first win at Lumen Field since 2011. Then, on Saturday, FCD dropped its first home game since mid March with a 1-0 defeat to FC Cincinnati, the reigning Supporters' Shield winners. It's important for Dallas to bounce back on the Fourth of July against the Portland Timbers and recapture the early momentum of the Peter Luccin era.

New Blood: There were two debutants in FC Dallas' narrow loss to FC Cincinnati on Saturday. Lewisville native Tomas Pondeca and Homegrown forward Tarik Scott both made their MLS debuts as second-half substitutes. Both players were called up after spending the first half of 2024 with North Texas SC, FCD's second team, where they helped the club reach first place in MLS NEXT Pro. With Dallas' congested schedule and the injury list piling up, there should be even more chances for Pondeca, Scott and potentially more North Texas standouts over the next few weeks.

The Timbers: Dallas faces a Portland team that's in a rich vein of form. The Timbers are unbeaten in their last six, including four wins and two ties, and are up to fifth place in the Western Conference. Despite suffering through a run of nine games without a win early in the season, head coach Phil Neville has turned it around and his Timbers are among the hottest teams in MLS. The danger man for the Timbers is undoubtedly Brazilian playmaker Evander, who boasts nine goals and 11 assists this season and was recently named an MLS All-Star. It's not all about Evander, though. Fellow South Americans Felipe Mora and Jonathan Rodriguez have also chipped in with nine goals apiece so far in 2024. Dallas' backline will need to be at its best to contain the Timbers who've scored at least two goals in five of their last six games.
