It has not been often in recent times that Austin FC haven’t conceded. The facts show that Austin FC have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 matches, giving up 10 goals during that time. We will just have to see whether or not that trend can be sustained into this next match.
Following on from suffering a loss in their previous game against Vancouver Whitecaps in MLS action, FC Dallas will be aiming to make amends here.
In that game, FC Dallas had 67% possession and 16 attempts on goal with 1 of them on target. Vancouver Whitecaps got 4 attempts on goal with 2 of them on target. Lucas Cavallini (2') and Déiber Caicedo (44') scored for Vancouver Whitecaps.
The stats tell the story, and FC Dallas have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, with opponents netting 12 goals in all. At the back, FC Dallas certainly have room for improvement.

Team News: Austin FC
It doesn’t get much better regarding selection, with just the lone fitness concern for the Austin FC manager Josh Wolff to be concerned with from an otherwise fully-primed group of players. Jhojan Valencia (Knee Injury) is sidelined. The players who will not be able to play in this game through being suspended are Cecilio Domínguez and Daniel Pereira.
It looks as if Austin FC should make use of the 4-2-3-1 formation for this game and select Brad Stuver, Hector Jimenez, Ruben Gabrielsen, Julio Cascante, Jon Gallagher, Felipe Martins, Alexander Ring, Owen Wolff, Sebastián Driussi, Diego Fagundez and Maximiliano Urruti.
Team News: FC Dallas
Due to a fully injury-free squad available to choose from, the FC Dallas manager Nico Estévez does not have any fitness concerns to report before this game.
We reckon that Toros seem likely to elect for a 4-3-3 formation, going with Maarten Paes, Ema Twumasi, J. Antonio Martínez, Matt Hedges, Marco Farfan, Facundo Quignon, Paxton Pomykal, Brandon Servania, Paul Arriola, Jesús Ferreira and Alan Velasco.
We feel that FC Dallas are dangerous enough to get a goal against this Austin FC side, but it realistically won’t be as many as the goals that they could concede.
We’re tipping a close game with a 2-1 winning margin for Austin FC at the end of the 90 minutes. There looks to be little in this one.
