Quick Strikes | Lucas Melano and five numbers to know heading into #DALvPOR

The Portland Timbers take the field Wednesday against FC Dallas at Toyota Stadium (6pm PT, ROOT SPORTS). Here are five numbers to know for #DALvPOR in the latest Quick Strikes. 

13 Dating back to last season, the Timbers have scored in 13 consecutive MLS regular-season matches. That is the longest ongoing streak among MLS teams and ties the club's MLS record for longest such streak, previously accomplished between July 18 and Oct. 8, 2014. 

5 Out of Darlington Nagbe's 23 career MLS regular-season goals, five have come against FC Dallas. The output is two more than Nagbe's most against any other opponent and is tied for most goals by a Timbers player against a single opponent with Fanendo Adi (against Real Salt Lake and LA Galaxy) and Diego Valeri (against Chivas USA). Nagbe also scored against Dallas in the 2013 U.S. Open Cup. 

42 Midfield stalwart Diego Chara leads MLS for tackles this season with 42. Chara, who had the second-most tackles in MLS in both the 2013 and 2014 seasons, is one tackle ahead of NYCFC's Ronald Matarrita for the 2016 lead.

16Winger Lucas Melano has a club-high 16 successful dribbles, which is the eighth-most in MLS play this year and one more than teammate Nagbe.  

9 Along with his 32 career MLS goals, forward Fanendo Adi's nine career assists for the Timbers places him seventh on the club's MLS-era assist charts.
