Looks like we’re going on the road..

Another bad start to a half...

Well that isn't the best start

Lineups

FC Dallas heads into Decision Day against Minnesota United with one thing in mind, locking up a home playoff game (or two) with a win or draw.

Both sides are in the playoffs and this could be a playoff preview should the standings remain the way they are now after today’s game.


FC Dallas notes:

FC Dallas against Minnesota in 2020 - Had one game not been cancelled due to a COVID-19 issue back at the beginning of October, this would have been the fourth meeting of the year between the two sides. Instead, it will be the third. Kevin Molino scored a pair of second-half goals, leading the Loons to a 3-2 win Sept. 9 at Allianz Field. On Aug. 29 at Toyota Stadium, Fafa Picault and Jesus Ferreira netted goals a minute apart early on, pacing FC Dallas to a 3-1 win.

Key player for FC Dallas - Matt Hedges - The veteran defender will need to be the leader on the pitch that we know he can be here as the club looks to secure a home playoff game. FCD has struggled in the past defensively against the Loons on their turf, so Hedges will need to lead by example here in order to make that happen.
