With seven points from their first five games, Dallas has had a respectable start to 2023 as they aim to improve on last season's third-place finish and playoff loss.

Dallas is now ranked fifth in the early-season standings. The Texas team lost their previous match 2-1 at Los Angeles FC, with Denis Bouanga scoring the game-winning goal six minutes from time after Nkosi Tafari had restored the California team's advantage following Timothy Tillman's opener in the third minute.

Dallas must overcome their loss if they wish to close the eight-point deficit to league leaders St. Louis City as a win over the Timbers would allow them to move up to fourth place and overtake Minnesota United.

After beginning 2023 with a 1-0 home victory over Sporting Kansas City, Portland Timbers has had a disappointing season thus far in Giovanni Savarese's sixth season as manager.

After that victory, Atlanta United suffered three straight defeats to Los Angeles, St. Louis, and Atlanta United, the latter of which resulted in a 5-1 drubbing in Georgia. A victory in Texas this weekend may move Portland above Houston Dynamo, only one point below the top seven, and provide them with the momentum they need to match or improve on their eighth-place finish from 2022.
