Both teams are in the thick of things in the Western Conference playoff race. RSL is coming off a bad 4-1 loss to Vancouver, while FC Dallas picked up a 5-3 win last weekend in Austin.
FC Dallas notes:
Key player for FC Dallas - Jesus Ferreira - Without Ricardo Pepi up top, it may be time for Luchi to give Jesus the keys to the attack have him up top for a game.
Only draws here - Four of the last six meetings between Real Salt Lake and FC Dallas have ended in draws, including the last three in a row, while each team has recorded one win against the other in that span.
OUT: Beni Redzic (ankle), John Nelson (back), Bressan (shoulder)
