PT vs DAL Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
The Western Conference of the MLS will see runner’s up of last time in Portland Timbers host FC Dallas in what is going to be a matchup of great importance on Sunday.
Portland Timbers are still in the last place in the Western Conference, and this has been down to their unbelievably bad start to the season. The team has recovered a little bit but need to be a bit more consistent as only a few games are left before the playoffs. Mathematically they are still in it, and all they have to do is focus, and regain their form of last season in order to make a solid run.
Meanwhile, FC Dallas are in the fourth spot, and are having an ordinary season so far. The team has done exactly what was expected from them, and their lack of a superstar might see them being ousted from the playoffs soon. Regardless, the franchise is still looking good, and are undefeated in the last four played.
