Austin vs FC Dallas notes

FC Dallas, currently in fourth place, will look to avenge a 2-0 loss to the eighth-place Vancouver Whitecaps. FC Dallas had lost three of its previous four games. FC Dallas has allowed the fewest goals in the conference (15). Austin FC is a point ahead of FC Dallas in third place. Austin has 29 goals this season, which ranks second in the West. Austin’s goal differential of plus-11 ranks second in the conference.

Philly Union v NYCFC notes

The most recent meeting between Philadelphia Union and New York City ended in a 0:2 victory for Philadelphia Union. Being the host side has not proven to be an advantage in the last ten head-to-head meetings, with 4 home victories and 5 away triumphs. Only one of the last ten meetings ended in a tie. One of the last five meetings produced more than 2.5 goals, and two saw goals scored at both ends of the field. During that time, New York City kept one clean sheet and the Philadelphia Union held their opponents to no goals.
