FC Dallas vs DC United for Friday’s Major League Soccer match at the Toyota Stadium, in Frisco.
The Texans, who had four straight games in their dominance, two in MLS and two in the United States Cup, faced Portland Timbers at their rival’s stadium on Sunday, June 30th, and returned home with their hands empty. They lost by 1 to 0.
They remained stuck with 26 points. They did not have their position in the classification table changed. They started the midweek matchup in the fourth position of the Western Conference, but they saw the rivals approaching. The difference for Real Salt Lake, eighth-placed and first team outside the qualifying zone for post-season, fell to three points.
As hosts, performance is slightly lower. FC Dallas is the fifth best host of their conference. Of the 30 points played in his stadium, they won 19. Scored 16 goals and had defence beaten ten times.
By drawing 1-1 at home with Toronto FC on Saturday, June 29th, DC United missed a chance to retake the lead of the Eastern Conference. They had 31 points in second place, one point behind Philadelphia Union, who were beaten 4-2 at New York City by their rivals.
The campaign as a visitor to the team of the American capital is the third best of the conference. Of the 24 points that DC United played outside their domains, took home 12 having scored eight goals and suffered seven. It has the worst offensive production as a visitor, but it compensates with the less leaked defence as number two.
