FC Dallas hopes to return to their home pitch for three consecutive losses when they face the Los Angeles Galaxy at the Western Conference Dust Up in Frisco, Texas on Saturday.
Playing at home was good for undefeated FC Dallas in 16 straight home matches (8-0-8), MLS’s longest and most active regular season home undefeated run.
FC Dallas (2-7-5, 11 points) are at the bottom of the Western Conference table after losing 2-0 in Colorado on Wednesday. The club’s three consecutive defeats (all on the road) are the longest since May 2019.
Dallas coach Luchi Gonzalez said his team’s losing streak would be trivial.
“We are there in terms of games,” Gonzales said. “We’re there in terms of ball presence, concept, and organization. But there’s an important moment … the opposition is playing, but it’s not. We’re still summarizing it. Not. Especially apart, that’s our fight. “
FC Dallas scored goals in 13 consecutive games after maintaining no goals against Colorado in the opening round of the season. This is the longest match that Dallas has played without any goals since scoring 14 games in a row from 2013 to 2014.
The Galaxy (8-5-1, 25 points) dropped from two goals on Wednesday to win a draw against Real Salt Lake after losing 2-1 to Vancouver on Saturday. Rayan Loveroson won the Galaxy equalizer in the 77th minute and found the net for three consecutive games.
This was the fourth consecutive match between MLS co-top scorer Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez and midfielder Jonathan dos Santos and the Galaxy without Efrain Alvarez.
“(Laverosson) has great patience when it comes to crossing situations,” said Galaxy coach Greg Vanney. “His athletic ability, jumping ability and heading technique are on display at that moment.
“He really helped us find goals in different ways during this stretch. Obviously Javier (Hernandez) came out and we are looking for goals in different types. “
This is the first time Los Angeles has played a series of games without a win this season.
FC Dallas has won six of the last seven home matches against the Galaxy for the past four times in a row.
