Quick Strikes | Timbers again have double-digit home wins

The Timbers will play their penultimate home game of the 2018 regular-season when they face off against Western Conference-leading FC Dallas, Saturday at Providence Park (7:30pm PT, FOX 12 PLUS). Here are five numbers to know for #PORvDAL in the latest Quick Strikes. 

6 With his assist against Minnesota, Jorge Villafaña became the sixth defender to have a goal or an assist for the Timbers this season. The assist was Villafana's first for Portland since the U.S. international had two assists against the Galaxy on Oct. 18, 2015. 

10 Portland has won 10 matches at Providence Park this season which is tied for third-most home wins in MLS this season. In addition, the Timbers are the only MLS team that has won double-digit home matches in each of the last three seasons. 

12 The Timbers have proved to be one of the best teams in MLS following the halftime break. Only one team (Atlanta United FC) has more than Portland's 12 goals between the 46th and 60th minutes. 

24 Tomás Conechny made his first career MLS start in Portland’s match against Minnesota United FC. Conechny is the 24th different player to start a league match for Portland in 2018. 

10Through their first 30 games of the 2018 MLS regular season campaign. The Timbers have held a lead at the 75th minute mark in 12 matches this season, posting a solid 10-1-1 record in those matches.
