STORY LINES

Homegrown Derby
Saturday's game is the first of two meetings between FC Dallas and Real Salt Lake, two teams with similar philosophies. Both clubs believe in developing and playing Homegrown players. In 2019, the clubs set an MLS record when they played a combined 12 Homegrown players in one game (RSL played seven, FCD played five). This year, Dallas saw one of its Homegrown player named to the MLS All-Star game when Jesús Ferreira was voted into the team for next month's showdown against the Liga MX All-Stars. It's the third All-Star game in a row to feature an FCD Homegrown: Paxton Pomykal in 2019, Ricardo Pepi in 2021 and Ferreira in 2022 (there was no All-Star game held in 2020).

Hungry for a Win
Both teams head into the weekend's matchup needing a win. It's been seven games since FCD's last victory (a 3-1 away victory over Orlando City on May 28) but it hasn't been for a lack of trying: Dallas has taken the lead in four of those seven matches but was unable to take all three points. On the other side, Salt Lake broke a four-game winless run with a 3-0 victory over last-place Sporting Kansas City but Pablo Mastroeni's men are looking to chip away at Austin FC's eight-point lead second place in the West.

Defending Savarino
Dallas will need to keep a close eye on RSL's Jefferson Savarino this Saturday. The Venezuelan playmaker has four goals and two assists in just seven matches since returning to the club this May. Dallas hasn't kept a shutout since May 8 (a 2-0 win over Seattle Sounders) so Saturday would be a perfect time to get back on track. Salt Lake also hasn't lost at home all season but streaks are meant to be broken, right?
