FRISCO- FC Dallas returns home this weekend looking to regain momentum and remain undefeated at home against the New York Red Bulls. 

HEAD-TO-HEAD

  • FCD record: 5-3-2 (17 pts., 5th in West)
  • RBNY record: 3-4-2 (11 pts., 8th in East)
  • FCD vs. RBNY all-time: 17-22-6 (63 GF, 66 GA)
  • FCD vs. RBNY home: 9-12-4 (33 GF, 32 GA)

CURRENT FORM

  • FC Dallas returns home after a road loss against Houston looking to keep their streak at home alive. FC Dallas has a current 5-3-2 record while the Red Bulls have a 3-4-2 record starting out the season. The Red Bulls have been on a hot streak winning their past two games, whereas Dallas has been adjusting to injuries and a changing roster looking to regain rhythm at home. 

INCOMING MOMENTUM

  • The Red Bulls seem to be finding their momentum after a struggling start. They have won back-to-back games after taking a single point from their previous five. With a midweek match on Wednesday against Montreal, they'll face a short turnaround heading to Frisco for Saturday's matinee. On the road, New York has two points from four games and remains in search of their first full result. 

ONE-SIDED

  • The series history against the Red Bulls isn’t one that FC Dallas looks to for inspiration heading in to this game. Over the last six seasons, Dallas has a 0-4-2 record, including lopsided 4-0 and 3-0 results in the last two trips to Red Bull Arena in 2016 and 2018, respectively. At home, Dallas has back-to-back draws against New York, 0-0 in 2015 and 2-2 in 2017 - a game played a man down for 60 minutes after Jacori Hayes earned two yellows in the opening half hour of his first MLS start. FCD's last win over the Red Bulls came at Toyota Stadium on March 11, 2013, a 2-1 result. 

SUSPENSIONS

  • After serving a three-game suspension, the Red Bulls regain midfielder Kaku this week. The midfielder was a staple in the Red Bulls 2018 lineup and has two assists in the four games he’s seen playing time in this year. On the other side, Michael Barrios will see his 96 consecutive match appearance streak come to an end as he serves a one-game suspension for yellow card accumulation after picking up his fifth of the year on Saturday in Houston.
