FC Dallas return home after a two-game away stretch. They earned one point while on the road with a 3-0 loss to New York City FC and a 0-0 draw against Minnesota United. Dallas will be hungry for a win tomorrow night. They will face St. Louis City SC, this is the first meeting between the two sides.


St. Louis is currently in 2nd place in the Western Conference with 19 points, they are only one point away from Western Conference leaders the Seattle Sounders. Like Dallas, they are winless in their last two games. They tied the Colorado Rapids 1-1 and lost 2-1 to the Portland Timbers. Like Dallas, they'll be hungry to win.

Injury Issues-


Dallas is beginning to see some injury issues with core pieces of their roster. Alan Velasco has been out since early April. His last match was against Inter Miami where he played 90 minutes. Defender Nkosi Tafari missed the match against Minnesota United with a muscle injury.


Unfortunately, I couldn't find the injury report myself but according to this Tweet, Velasco should be available tomorrow. Nkosi, however, will still be out.


Thoughts on the Match-


Dallas will have their fans and El Matador tomorrow night to cheer them on. El Matador has been extremely impressive this season, it feels like their really helping Dallas lock down "Fortress Frisco". This match should be a win for them but the absence of Nkosi has me a little nervous.
