FC Dallas will be wanting a better result here following the 2-0 MLS defeat last time out to Houston Dynamo.
In that game, FC Dallas managed 72% possession and 28 attempts at goal with 8 on target. At the other end, Houston Dynamo had 11 attempts at goal with 6 of them on target. Quintero (20') and Cerén (83') scored for Houston Dynamo.
It’s been a rare occasion in recent games that FC Dallas have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. It will be a concern for them that Toros have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 matches, leaking 8 goals along the way. We will just have to see whether or not that trend will end up being continued on into this next match.
