The Portland Timbers play FC Dallas on a quick turnaround Saturday at Providence Park (7:30pm PT, TICKETS, FOX 12 PLUS). Here are some key numbers to know ahead of the key Western Conference showdown.


Portland is unbeaten in its last nine matches (4-0-5), dating back to June 18, 2022 – the longest active unbeaten streak in MLS. It also marks the club’s longest unbeaten streak since the 2018 season (15). 


The Timbers have scored 40 goals this season – the third most in the Western Conference and fourth most in the league. Portland has scored at least one goal in 10 consecutive matches, tallying 20 total in that stretch.


Portland is currently the only team in the league that has five goal scorers with five or more goals each (Santiago Moreno, Jaroslaw Niezgoda, Sebastián Blanco, Bill Tuiloma, Dairon Asprilla).


Santiago Moreno finished the match against Nashville with a 100% passing completion rate on 43 passes. He’s just the third player in club history to make 40 or more passes in a match with 100% accuracy (Diego Chara – 7/22/2019, Darlington Nagbe – 10/26/2014).


According to Opta, Sebastián Blanco has the highest attacking contribution on the Timbers (4.37), which combines shots and open play chances created per 90 minutes played. Blanco’s score puts him in the 95th percentile of MLS players.
