MLS: LA Galaxy at FC Dallas Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

FC Dallas looks to regroup after a dismal effort last week against Nashville when they host rivals Real Salt Lake.

Both teams are in the playoff hunt at the moment as FC Dallas has a four-point gap over RSL going into this one but RSL does have two games in hand making this one a pretty important game for FCD.


FC Dallas notes:

Key player for FC Dallas - Jesus Ferreira - He’s back in the lineup after his yellow card accumulation suspension last week. He will need to pick up right where he left off a couple of weeks ago too.

Last time out -Dallas ended a five-match winless run against RSL on July 23 with a 1-0 away win. RSL is unbeaten in four straight matches in Dallas (W1 D3) after avoiding defeat just three times in their first 17 visits (W1 D2 L14, including playoffs).

Jesus at home - Jesús Ferreira has scored nine goals at Toyota Stadium this MLS season, including finding the net three times in his last two home matches.

Homegrown minute watch - This season, FC Dallas Homegrowns have played 7,126 minutes and accumulated 112 appearances. During the 2021 season, FCD Homegrowns played 10,312 minutes and made 171 appearances.
