Records to this point. FCD (17‐8‐8, 59 points) is two points ahead of where it was in 2015 (17‐10‐6, 57 points), 33 games into the season.
Only 1. According to the club’s game notes, Dallas’ 1‐0 victory against LA on Oct. 1 was the first win at Toyota Stadium this season when FCD scored only one goal. The last 1‐0 win at home for Dallas came on March 7, 2015 – a span of 32 matches.
Better with Gruezo. Since May 11, FC Dallas has only lost one match in which Carlos Gruezo has started, a 1‐0 defeat to Real Salt Lake in Utah on Aug. 20.
