Fabian Castillo’s rabona assist stole the show and FC Dallas reclaimed the Brimstone Cup on Saturday night, as Dallas defeated the Chicago Fire 3-1 at Toyota Stadium.
Goals from Maxi Urruti, Mauro Diaz and Mauro Rosales powered FC Dallas to the win, extending the club’s home unbeaten run to 16 matches in the process.
The Dallas starting 11 named by manager Oscar Pareja was again a surprise to most, with goalkeeper Jesse Gonzalez earning his first MLS start since May 7th. Defender Walker Zimmerman was left off of the game day roster in another surprising move by Pareja, with the center back potentially resting for Wednesday’s Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup quarterfinal at Houston.
FC Dallas heads to the northwestern United States in search of three points on Wednesday night as they face the struggling Seattle Sounders at CenturyLink Field.
This will be the second of three meetings this season between Dallas and Seattle. Their first meeting in 2016 was a 2-0 home win for FC Dallas on May 14th, with goals scored by Mauro Diaz and Michael Barrios.
20 games into their 2016 MLS season, FC Dallas find themselves top of both the Western Conference and the Supporters’ Shield standings with an impressive 37 points.
Conversely, the club goes from the top of the league to the bottom of it when it comes to fan attendance at home matches. Website Soccer Stadium Digest routinely updates the 2016 MLS Attendance rankings following each match week, and as of July 10th, FC Dallas is last in MLS when it comes to average attendance per home match.
