The two sides are coming into the match on opposite results from a week ago against their top rivals. FCD dominated Houston at home in a 5-1 blowout, while FCC struggled at home against the Columbus Crew in a 3-1 loss.
FC Dallas notes:
Last time against the FCC. This is the first meeting ever between the two clubs.
Key player for FC Dallas - Jesus Ferreira - Last week we saw just how special Jesus could be in the midfield as he dribbled his way through the Houston defense on his way to scoring a wonderful goal. Dallas will need his creative play again on Saturday as the Cincy defense has been super leaky this season, especially on the road.
