Both teams are coming off 2-0 wins in Week 2, as the Crew won in New England while FC Dallas downed conference rivals LA Galaxy.
FC Dallas notes:
Last time against Columbus. The annual meeting in 2018 was in Frisco, where the two sides played to a 0-0 stalemate.
Key player for FC Dallas: Paxton Pomykal - We saw a week ago how important he can be for this attack. Columbus will present a few more issues and challenges for the young attacker than LA did a week ago but if he can do what he’s been doing this season, FCD should get points on the road here.
FCD against Porter - Caleb Porter and FCD have a long history with one another during his time with the Portland Timbers. In 18 regular season matches against the Porter-led Timbers, Dallas posted a record of 7-6-5 with a plus-nine goal differential.
