Match Overview

HEAD-TO-HEAD

  • FCD vs. Tigres all-time: 3-5-0 (9 goals scored, 12 goals conceded)

FC Dallas hosts Liga MX side Tigres UANL in an international friendly while the MLS season is on a short break during FIFA's international window. The clubs are familiar with one another as they used to compete for the Rio Grande Plate (a two-game friendly competition) twice a season between 2006 and 2008 as well as 2011. In those games, Tigres had the upper hand with five wins while Dallas earned three victories: First, a 2-0 win in the first meeting on July 19, 2006 followed by 3-2 victory in 2008 and lastly a 2-1 win in the most recent game between the teams on Sept. 3, 2011.

"I think it’s a good opportunity to keep our rhythm of training during the week and then playing on the weekend," said head coach Nico Estévez. "Tigres are a good team. They’ll keep us alert and focused and will demand a lot more from us than a regular scrimmage.

"It’ll also help put everybody on the same page. There are players who’ve played fewer minutes lately and they’ll have the opportunity to play more and get their fitness which is very important. It’ll help everyone to keep playing with rhythm and progressing with our style of play and work on things that we didn’t do well against San Jose. So it’s great to have this game."
