Geez, okay, Cowell is the real deal

Not the best start in the second half.

The early press looks good
1' - Wow, Dallas nearly opens the scoring within 20 seconds after Franco Jara steals the ball of the goalkeeper but Obrian's shot was saved.— Garrett Melcer (@GarrettMelcer) April 24, 2021
Dallas also hit the crossbar from the following corner. Promising early signs. #DTID #SJvDAL pic.twitter.com/NNT3R36TnL
San Jose got off to a rough start in week one as they lost 2-1 to the Houston Dynamo. Dallas is coming off a scoreless draw to Colorado as well.
FC Dallas notes:
Key player for FC Dallas - Andres Ricaurte - He was quiet, a bit too quiet in the season opener a week ago against Colorado. Dallas will need him to facilitate things to the wings and up top to Franco Jara more in this game as the Quakes defense is prone to giving up lots of goals. The more chances he helps create, the better chance FC Dallas returns to Frisco with three more points.
All-time vs San Jose & at PayPal Park - FC Dallas’ all-time regular season record against San Jose stands at 20-28-17 with 77 goals scored and 100 conceded. The club’s total away record isn’t great as they’ve gone 8-16-9 with 38 goals for and 56 against in all-time meetings in Northern California. Since the ‘Quakes moved into their new stadium PayPal Park in 2015, FCD has a 1-1-4 record at the venue.
Last time against San Jose - Thanks to COVID, the teams haven’t faced one another since June of 2019, in a 2-2 draw out in San Jose.
OUT: Jesus Ferriera (shoulder)
On Loan: Brandon Servania, Justin Che
San Jose Earthquake notes:
Yeah, we know him - Chris Wondolowski has scored seven career goals against FC Dallas (7), most among all players currently in MLS.
OUT: Marcos Lopez (lower leg)
QUESTIONABLE: Luciano Abecasis (thigh), Tommy Thompson (shoulder)
