Match Preview | St. Louis CITY SC On the Road this Saturday to Take on FC Dallas 


St. Louis CITY SC will play its 17th MLS regular season match this Saturday at 7:30 p.m. CT against FC Dallas at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas. Fans can tune in live on MLS Season Pass on the Apple TV app and listen via radio on KYKY Y98.1 FM (English) and KXOK 102.9 FM (Spanish).

CITY SC will be looking to pick up points in their third consecutive match and continue their climb up the MLS Western Conference table.

St. Louis CITY SC played their 50th MLS regular season match in their last outing against Portland Timbers. The draw against Portland means CITY SC (74) has accumulated the fifth most points of any MLS team in their first 50 games, trailing LAFC (94), Atlanta United (88), Houston Dynamo (79) and Seattle Sounders (75).

Across the first 50 matches, St. Louis has racked up 74 points, earned 20 wins and scored 85 goals with a plus-15 goal differential. Indiana Vassilev is the only player to appear in all 50 MLS regular season matches. He is also the only player to feature in the team’s 68 matches in club history.

Against Portland, Roman Bürki picked up his fifth clean sheet of the season, doing so in 16 MLS regular season matches which was four matches earlier than it took him to reach the same mark last season. Bürki’s five clean sheets are tied for third in the league.

St. Louis is 0-2-5 on the road this season, with their last away point coming against Supporters’ Shield leaders Inter Miami. In that match, St. Louis scored three goals to record their 15th game with at least three goals since the start of the 2023 season. St. Louis is averaging close to two goals (1.86) per road match and has earned a point in five of their seven away matches.

The match will mark the fourth time the teams meet across all competitions since the beginning of the 2023 MLS season. St. Louis and FC Dallas both won their home leg of the fixture last season. The record is locked at 1-1-1 after the two teams played to a draw back in April this season. In that match, St. Louis outshot Dallas 26-10, firing seven shots on target and earned nine corners.

Dallas has a 3-8-5 record this season and is winless in their last five regular season matches. Dallas is 3-2-2 at home and has scored 11 goals and conceded 10. After leading 3-0 in their last home match, FC Dallas gave up three goals in 30 minutes to Real Salt Lake, denying them the three points on the day.

FC Dallas will have a new face managing the team on Saturday after announcing that they have parted ways with former head coach Nico Estévez. Assistant coach Peter Luccin will step in as interim head coach, with his first match at the helm this weekend against CITY SC.
