Austin will be keen to retain their winning form, having beaten Portland Timbers 3-1 in their last fixture.
Austin have now lost 10 of their last 17 meetings, a worrying statistic that has to be addressed by Manager Josh Wolff. They currently sit in twelfth place, with a total of 19 points having won five meetings, drawn four fixtures, and lost 11 matches.

FC Dallas’ campaign so far has seen them accrue 22 points this season
Dallas’s next opponents will smell blood if they begin the next match with all guns blazing. Whilst it’s understandable that they may want to do this, after their recent 2-2 draw at Houston Dynamo and previous loss to Seattle Sounders, Dallas must get a positive result and keep defensively solid.
Dallas have been unable to find the winning strategy now for 14 of their last 18 games, a habit that must be broken if they want to end with a positive season. Their position is eleventh in the League, and they have 22 points having won five matches, drawn seven matches, and lost nine fixtures.
It must be a worrying prospect for Dallas to go back on the road, with a bud run of away performances under their belt this season. So far they have only secured one win and two draws to the home team.
Winning this fixture will see FC Dallas on 25 points.
