MLS: FC Dallas at Austin FC Scott Wachter-USA TODAY Sports

Well, crap

BRANDON!!

HOTTEST PLAYER IN MLS

Lineups


FC Dallas notes:

Key player for FC Dallas - Jesus Ferreira - Six goals in two games at Q2 Stadium. That feels like the only stat you need to know right now going into this one. He’s also scored in every single game against Austin.

Recent run against Austin - FC Dallas won all three meetings against Austin in their new Texas rival’s inaugural MLS season, outscoring them 9-4 in those games. The three-game sweep marked the first time Dallas has won three matches against a team in a single season since 2016 (Seattle, Portland, including playoffs).

Can a road streak begin? - FC Dallas has won two of its last three away matches (L1), including a 3-1 win in Orlando in its last road game in late May. Dallas hasn’t won consecutive MLS road games since May 2018 with wins at Toronto and the Galaxy.
