Dallas form and stats

The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Dallas so far with only 5 points returning home. The records show 1-2-3 (win-draw-lose). Dallas seem to be suffering from homesickness with two consecutive losses away. Third time lucky?

Dallas won their last game, 1-0 versus Sporting KC played at home. Preceding that game, the 0-2 loss visiting Houston Dynamo's place.

So, this is expected to be a close game, an even contest. Looking at earlier matches with Dallas playing away and similar expectations, we found five relevant matches. Results were zero Dallas wins, one draw and four defeats.
