  • Omar Gonzalez started against the Spurs and said after the match he was targeting 90 minutes against FCD.
  • Last week, with Brek Shea out of the lineup as punishment for an outburst against coach Schellas Hyndman, Dallas thwacked the Portland Timbers to the tune of a 5-0 beatdown.
  • The reigning MLS champ is in fifth in the West with 30 points. Eight points back is Portland, eighth in the nine-team conference.
  • After a sluggish start to the season LA has turned it around. Three wins and a draw in the last four matches have pushed the team into the final playoff spot.
