Jimmy with a massive save
Good chance by Vargas early on
Vargas’ ability with the ball, particular when trying to find an open shooting lane, may be something to keep an eye on this season, y’all. https://t.co/j4YZEvYkZL— Big D Soccer (@BigDSoccer) April 18, 2021
FC Dallas’ home record against the Rapids is 25-8-6 with 71 goals for and 41 against. Dallas has faced Colorado in season-opening matches three times, not including 2021.
FC Dallas notes:
Key player for FC Dallas - Franco Jara - He did well enough in the preseason against some sub-par MLS sides but against a playoff-contender like Colorado, he needs to shine more than he did in 2020. Get off to a good start in this one and fans will have his back.
All-time in season openers - FC Dallas is currently on an 11-game unbeaten streak in home-opening games. The club has an all-time home opener record of 14-4-7 and a 9-1-5 record in openers at Toyota Stadium. Dallas’ all-time record in season-opening games stands at 12-4-8.
Last year against Colorado - Thanks to COVID, the teams faced just once in 2020 with Dallas winning 4-1 thanks to a hat trick from Santiago Mosquera.
OUT: Jesus Ferriera (shoulder), Thomas Roberts
