Quick Strikes | Jorge Moreira one of only two players in MLS with games of seven or more tackles

The Timbers head to Texas to take on FC Dallas at Toyota Stadium Saturday (5pm PT, FOX 12 PLUS (KPDX)). Here are five numbers to know for #DALvPOR in the latest edition of Quick Strikes. 

3 Including their 2-1 victory over FC Dallas in last season's Audi 2018 MLS Cup Playoffs, the Timbers are unbeaten in their last three visits to Frisco. 

106 Forward Foster Langsdorf made his MLS debut in Portland's last match, becoming the 106th different player to play for the Timbers in MLS play. Langsdorf is the third Homegrown Player to compete in MLS for Portland. 

116 The 116th and final game of Giovanni Savarese's MLS playing career came against Dallas, then known as the Dallas Burn, on Sept. 9, 2000. Savarese scored three different times against Dallas in his playing career. 

50 With his next appearance, Jeff Attinella will be playing his 50th MLS (regular season and playoffs) match for Portland. Attinella, who has 13 shutouts for the club, will be the fourth goalkeeper to hit 50 MLS games played for the Timbers. 

7X2 In his two games with the Timbers, defender Jorge Moreira has recorded seven tackles in each match. Moreira is the only player in MLS to have multiple matches with seven or more tackles this season.
