LA is coming off three straight road losses as they return home for the first time since mid-July. Just one point separates the two clubs in the current MLS standings as they each are looking to stay above the red playoff line.
FC Dallas notes:
Last time against the Galaxy. The two sides met earlier in the season at Toyota Stadium where FC Dallas came out on top in a 2-0 win.
Key player for FC Dallas - Bryan Acosta - While we need the attack to stay at the rate that we saw over the weekend against Minnesota, Acosta was key part of keeping the defense from being put under a lot of pressure. He’ll need to be able to lock down the likes of Zlatan and Pavon before they get through to the backline.
QUESTIONABLE: Zdenek Ondrasek (F) - lower body strain, Thomas Roberts (M) - quad contusion
On Loan: Dante Sealy (North Texas SC), Moises Hernandez (San Antonio FC), Francis Atauhene & Ema Twumasi (Austin Bold)
