Welp..we don’t like that.

Lineups:

FC Dallas looks to defend their Copa Tejas crown from a year ago as they take on the Houston Dynamo.

Both teams come into this match with identical records on the season at 3-1-3. New managers Nico Estevez and Paolo Nagamura get their first look at what the Texas Derby is all about here.


FC Dallas notes:

Key player for FC Dallas - Alan Velasco - The play on the wings will be big in this one as the attack needs to find their mojo again after another scoreless draw last weekend. Velasco hasn’t had a taste of the Derby yet since arriving in Frisco and he needs to insert himself in this one early and often to help set a tone for the Dallas attack.

The Derby at Home - The home side is unbeaten in the last 15 meetings between FC Dallas and Houston (W7 D8), with Dallas last to win away, 3-1, at Houston in 2016. Dallas is unbeaten in 11 straight home matches against Houston (W7 D4) dating back to 2013, tied for its second-longest regular season home unbeaten run against a single opponent (13 straight vs Colorado from 2002-08).
