The Black-and-Red are starting to feel some pressure after five games without a win, and they'll get the chance to pick on a short-handed Dallas side at home.

Despite some good moments in most of their matches, D.C. United has started 2016 with three ties, two losses, and zero wins. They've only scored three total goals across their MLS and CONCACAF Champions League games despite taking more shots than their opponent in four of five outings.

The Revolution traveled to Dallas looking to win some silverware in an otherwise disappointing season. However, instead, the Revs were outclassed by a vastly superior opponent.

If the New England Revolution's disappointing 2016 season had a glimmer of hope and pride, it was the club's drive to the US Open Cup Final.

A 2-1 lead at home in the first half is a spot that should put teams in the driver's seat, but the Revs coughed up that lead, eventually losing 2-4.

The New England Revolution welcomed FC Dallas to Gillette Stadium on Saturday night, hoping to build on the momentum of a 2-0 win over Chicago last week.

In an imperfect but impressive performance befitting an imperfect but impressive season, the Timbers came out of Toyota Stadium with a 2-2 draw that propels them to their first cup final since 1975.

For 60 minutes the Timbers did largely what they came to Dallas to do: squeeze the Hoops and look to break.

Sporting KC Fall in Dallas

Down the Byline at related • 0 views
Sporting Kansas City's first road trip of the year didn't turn out very well for KC in Dallas tonight as a Blas Perez brace helped to lead Dallas to a 3-1 win over KC. While KC didn't look extremely well in the loss, and probably deserved to lose the game, the scoreline did flatter Dallas a little bit considering Perez and about four other Dallas players were offside on Perez's second goal, and without that goal, the question becomes whether KC would have been pushing forward as much leading to Dallas' third goal on the counter.

PORTLAND, Ore. Pa Modou Kah scored a 94th-minute equalizer Wednesday as the Timbers came back from a two-goal deficit to draw with a FC Dallas side that ended the match with nine players on the field.

In the final MLS match before the World Cup, Fabian Castillo and Blas Perez scored first-half goals for FC Dallas, but late Will Johnson and Kah goals were enough for Portland to salvage the 2-2 draw in front of another sellout crowd at Providence Park.

TL;DR version: You play to win the game

Heading to Commerce City, Colorado (1 PM, ESPN) the Seattle Sounders have a 2-1 lead in the Western Conference Finals. This is their best ever lead just a match away from the MLS Cup. Any result where they win or draw means that they advance. A loss by just one goal if they score at least one means that they advance.

Last Chance To Turn The Season Around

Last time we were in Dallas...
Three weeks ago I wrote about how important this 5 game run was. I said to achieve our reasonable goal (at that point) of a top 2 finish and a shot at the Shield we needed to show up for these 5 games because the run-in after that was an easier schedule. Well in the first four of those games we've managed 2 points and seen Dallas pull away from us and LA and FSL start breathing down our necks.

On June 28th or 29th we'll be in Dallas for the next round. The winner of that game will be on the road against the winner of Houston/KC in the quarterfinals on July 20th or 21st.

Dallas Burns Rapids Defense

View From The Couch at related • 0 views

As many fans feared the decision to play the second team on Wednesday seems to have cost the Rapids as the planned on win didn't emerge from Saturday's game in Dallas. Instead Dallas sliced and diced a possibly tired Rapids defense in the second half en route to a 3-2 win. Colorado can feel unlucky in some ways, as two of the three Dallas goals were scored due to unusual deflections, but at the same time Dallas had two great opportunities they smashed off the woodwork.

Three Questions from the Timbers’ 3-1 Meltdown Against Dallas

What a ridiculous first-half performance that was from the Portland Timbers.

If anybody thought the Timbers would come into Providence Park with a chip on their shoulder after Nigel de Jong mugged Darlington Nagbe on Sunday, Caleb Porter's team dispelled that notion in short order by putting in a listless, sloppy effort in the first half that had Porter apologizing to supporters after the game.
