Winners of four straight games, FC Dallas takes the Toyota Stadium field for the last time until August 15th on Saturday night when they host Western Conference rivals Portland Timbers FC. Sitting at the top of MLS, Saturday's match has huge playoff implications on the line so don't miss this one. Here are the 10 things to know about Saturday's match.
1. Be sure to arrive early as we are handing out the third in our collectible mini-scarf series. This one, presented by Chase, has the "Unite for 90" tagline and you want to get there early to grab one of those at the gate.
3. Our graphic designer Olivia Brestal has crafted up another awesome match poster for this weekend's game honoring 2015 MLS All-Star Fabian Castillo. Cop one in the team store on Saturday night and maybe Fabian will autograph it for you sometime.
4. Saturday's match is on TXA21 with the All-Star team of Mark Followill and Brian Dunseth on the call! If you can't catch the broadcast, tune to 100.7FM for the English call with Steve Davis or the legend Carlos Alvarado on 1270AM with the Spanish radio call.
5. Things have gotten very heated(no pun intented) between FC Dallas and Portland over the last couple of years. Check out some of the controversies bubbling under the surface as we head into this match.
6. One huge thing to watch on Saturday night is birthday boy Kellyn Acosta. The man who turns 20 on Friday scored his first MLS goal last week and the way he pushes into the attack makes FC Dallas an even more dynamic team. We talk about it in our Keys to the Match driven by Toyota.
