FC Dallas will host Minnesota United at the Toyota Stadium in MLS action tomorrow.
FC Dallas comes into this game on the back of a 0-0 draw against Houston Dynamo at the BBVA Compass Stadium on Saturday. Houston Dynamo was arguably the better team, and FC Dallas was fortunate to escape with a point.
Minnesota United, on the other hand, lost 2-1 to Sporting Kansas City on Saturday at the Allianz Field. A goal from Gadi Kinda and an own goal from Michael Boxall secured the win for Peter Vermes' side, with a Jaylin Lindsey own goal scant consolation for Minnesota United.
