Comment: Dallas gut out a solid draw on the road, and Maxi Urruti did what he does in getting the all-important equalizer. Mauro Diaz was an unused substitute in the game against LAFC -- is his gravitational pull over FC Dallas’ attack gone?

Comment: A point on the road in Los Angeles is a good return for Oscar Pareja’s side. Maxi Urruti’s excellent work was rewarded with a second-half goal that helped the visitors claim a draw against Bob Bradley’s team.

Comment: A monster game from Max Urruti -- four shots, one goal, four recoveries, three tackles, three clearances -- powered FCD to a valuable point on the road and one more display of a broader identity, with just 35.7 percent of possession. Mauro Diaz did not play.
