FC Dallas hits the road for the first time in 2022 as they take on the New England Revolution.
Both sides are coming into this meeting off draws in their first game last weekend. New England came from behind twice in a 2-2 draw in Portland, while FC Dallas picked up a draw at home against Toronto.
Key player for FC Dallas – Jesus Ferreira – He had some clear struggles in front of the net last week against Toronto. New England has defensive holes that he could do well against if he just takes his chances this time around.
First roady of the year – Since 1996, FC Dallas has a 6-12-8 record for its first road match of the season. Dallas’ first road match in team history was against the Colorado Rapids on April 21, 1996.
A little unclean in the back – FC Dallas has not kept a clean sheet in any of its last 20 away matches (including playoffs) dating back to a 1-0 win at Nashville in November 2020. The 20-game run is the longest active streak without an away clean sheet in MLS and the second-longest in club history (26 straight from June 2001 to September 2002).
Recently good against New England – FC Dallas is unbeaten in nine straight matches against New England (W8 D1) dating back to the start of the 2012 season. According to the league’s website, those 25 points represent the most FC Dallas has ever collected against a single opponent over a nine-match span in the club’s MLS history.
