Lineups show a new face

FC Dallas remains on the road to close out the month of July as they visit rivals Sporting Kansas City tonight.

Both teams are coming into this one on different forms. FC Dallas has won three out of their last five league games while Sporting KC has lost three out of their last five and are on a four-game winless streak in league play at the moment.

FC Dallas notes:

Last time against SKC. It wasn’t that long ago that these two sides met in the USOC Round of 16 where SKC got a late goal in a wild 3-2 result.

Ahead of pace. FC Dallas matched its win total from last season (11) with its victory vs. Chicago on July 14. With 20 games into the season, Dallas (39 points) is ahead of its pace during the 2016 season (37 points through 20 matches) in which it claimed the MLS Supporters Shield.

Oscar in July. Oscar Pareja has a 15-3-3 record (.786 winning percentage) for the month of July since becoming head coach in 2014. The three losses were big defeats too, a 5-0 defeat to Seattle Sounders FC on July 13, 2016, a 4-0 loss to the Vancouver Whitecaps FC on July 29, 2017 and a 2-0 loss to Real Salt Lake on July 7, 2018.

Key player. Maxi Urruit - If there was ever a time to break a scoreless rut, it would be this one for Maxi. He needs to step up again before some of the new faces join the club in the coming weeks.
