STORY LINES

Home Form
FC Dallas enters Saturday's matchup with the Sounders on a four-game home win streak. Nico Estévez's team has yet to lose at Toyota Stadium this year and has only dropped points once (a 1-1 draw with Toronto FC in the season opener). While Dallas has yet to win away (three draws, one loss), the team is largely following a historically-proven MLS strategy: win at home, don't lose on the road. This tactic has FCD sitting comfortably in fourth place in the West so Estévez and co. will feel they're on a great path to earn a home playoff game come October. But, with five of its next seven games coming away from home, Dallas will need to capitalize this Saturday at Toyota Stadium to provide a nice point cushion before a tough road stretch.

Ferreira the Younger
Homegrown Jesús Ferreira is on the verge of writing another chapter in the Ferreira family's story in Dallas. The 21-year-old Designated Player tied his father, David's, MLS goal-scoring tally with his 24th strike last Saturday in the 2-2 draw with Sporting Kansas City. Jesús could surpass his dad's record this Saturday at Toyota Stadium, the venue where David became MLS MVP and led FCD to its only MLS Cup appearance back in 2010. It's a special achievement, but not one Jesús has been keeping close tabs onuntil now.

Jesús Ferreira: "I didn't even know (about tying David's record) until I saw the tweet. But I'm happy, I'm excited that I was able to do that, especially here in Dallas. And also wearing the #10, like he did. I'm happy, I'm excited and I'm ready to beat his score."

Facing the CONCACAF Kings
FC Dallas will face the newly crowned Concacaf Champions as the Seattle Sounders defeated Pumas 5-2 on aggregate Wednesday night. In doing so, Brian Schmetzer's team became the first MLS team to hold that title in the modern era of the competition. Although FCD and Seattle have had their fair share of tense, heated battles over the years, this achievement shines brightly on MLS as a whole and deserves recognition from Dallas and Seattle fans alike. That's not to say Saturday's game matters any less. Seattle sits in 12th place in the West (albeit with a few games in hand) and, with the CCL campaign finally over, they'll need to start climbing the table sooner rather than later. Dallas, too, will be desperate for three points in front of its home crowd.
