FC Dallas are aiming for their second straight win and third of the season on Sunday night as they host the Vancouver Whitecaps in a game on July 4.
Vancouver just drew 2-2 last weekend in Seattle. They are currently two points behind FC Dallas in the Western Conference standings.
FC Dallas notes:
Key player of FC Dallas – Richardo Pepi – Just keep giving him the ball. Do it.
Fireworks all around – FC Dallas are 10-4-4 with the last six games of July 4 that ended in victories for FC Dallas. Dallas has faced DC United five times, Chicago Fire, New England Revolution, New York MetroStars / Red Bulls and Chivas USA twice, and Atlanta United FC, Orlando City SC, Toronto FC, Sporting Kansas City and Philadelphia Union once. The Vancouver Whitecaps will be the 12th team Dallas faces on America’s birthday and the second Canadian team.
Recent issues with Caps – Vancouver is undefeated in its last three trips to Dallas (W1 D2), scoring eight goals over the three visits. The Whitecaps had lost their first eight games at Toyota Stadium (including the playoffs), scoring just three times in those games.
OUT: Matt Hedges (hip injury), Beni Redzic (ankle), Kyle Zobeck (quad injury), Jose Martinez (thigh injury)
On loan: none
International obligation: none
First semester problems – The Whitecaps haven’t scored a goal in the first half of their 10 games this season. This is the longest first-half goal drought in team history and the 11th time a team has played 10 or more games without a first-half goal in MLS history. .
