Michael Barrios doubles the lead for #FCDallas, with a bending strike to the far post side netting. #MNUFC gave him way too much time and space.— Jason Foster (@JogaBonito_USA) August 19, 2018

So much good about this lineup
Both teams are coming in looking for points as the playoff push begins. Minnesota has one win on the road all season while FC Dallas just suffered their first home loss of the year two weeks ago to San Jose.
FC Dallas notes:
Last time against Minnesota. The two sides not long ago as FC Dallas trotted out six Homegrown players in the match that saw them pick up a 1-0 win at Minnesota.
Pareja in August. Pareja has a 6-10-3 record (.395 winning percentage) for the month of August. Let’s hope he is able to get some things changed to improve that this weekend.
First to score. FCD has scored first in all of its wins this season. Maxi Urruti ranks fourth in MLS in shots with 83 (3.77 per game). Dallas has a winning percentage of .900 (12-0-3) when scoring first – tied for the second-best mark in MLS with Vancouver (8-0-2). Seattle ranks first with a .938 winning percentage.
Key player. Matt Hedges - It will be important to keep an eye on Darwin Quintero if he plays in this one and Hedges is the right guy for that job. Keep Quintero off the board and FCD will have a good shot at three points in this one.
