Current unbeaten streak According to the game notes, FC Dallas is currently enjoying its fifth‐longest (tied) home unbeaten streak in franchise history. A win or draw against San Jose on April 9 would push the streak to nine matches, three away from the third and fourth longest in club history. Dallas' regular season record is 25‐6‐3 at Toyota Stadium under head coach Oscar Pareja.
Against the Quakes. FC Dallas is undefeated in its last four matches against San Jose. FCD won both meetings at Toyota Stadium a season ago, a 1‐0 win in the season opener on March 7 and a 2‐1 win on Oct. 25 to close out the regular season.
On goal. Dallas ranks first in MLS in shots on goal this season (31). Vancouver ranks second with 29.
