Ending droughts on the road. According to the game notes, Dallas had not won in RFK Stadium since May 28, 2005 – a 2‐0 win with both goals coming from Carlos Ruiz – until March 26, 2016. Dallas left RFK Stadium with a 3‐0 win on goals from Barrios (14, 28) and Urruti (52). Dallas had never won in Providence Park until April 13, 2016. Dallas downed Portland Timbers FC, 3‐1, on goals by Barrios (4), Castillo (26) and Tesho (29). FC Dallas haven’t won at the Red Bulls since 2006, when they took a 2‐1 victory at Giants Stadium. FCD has never won at Red Bull Arena (0‐1‐2).
High scoring. Dallas has 15 goals, the second‐most in MLS this season (LA Galaxy has 17). The team is on pace for 57, which would surpass the club record of 55, set in 2014 and 1997.
Against New York. The Red Bulls have a three‐game undefeated streak against FC Dallas, in the series, after the teams played to a scoreless draw in their only meeting a season ago, May 15 at Toyota Stadium. The Red Bulls had won the previous two meetings between the teams, both by 1‐0 scores.
