Houston snags a late goal
Hedges to the rescue!
Aranguiz gets another start
FC Dallas is coming off a pretty simple 2-0 win last weekend over Minnesota while Houston has lost five straight, including a 2-1 loss to Salt Lake last weekend that saw them give up the game-tying goal and winning goal in stoppage time.
FC Dallas notes:
Last time against Houston. It was only a few weeks ago that these sides squared off in the first installment of this year’s Texas Derby. After a wild start that saw each team score in the first ten minutes, things settled down until another wild sequence that saw Roland Lamah miss a penalty, Houston score on the counter attack seconds later, only to have that called back by VAR.
Recent history in Houston. FC Dallas is 9-10-12 all-time vs. Houston and 4-7-5 all-time in Houston. FCD is 6-1-5 vs. Houston since March 17, 2013.
Key player. Pablo Aranguiz - We got a nice glimpse of what he can bring to the attack for FC Dallas last weekend against a weaker Minnesota team. While he may not go the full 90 just yet, his ability to get through a defense with his ball skills and passing is something Dallas will need to get on the board in this one.
