St. Louis CITY SC holds an overall record of 2-0-1 with 11 goals scored and seven goals conceded against Austin FC and a 1-0-0 record against Austin when playing at CITYPARK. In Austin’s last visit to St. Louis, CITY SC fired in six goals, defeating the away side 6-3. The nine goals were the most goals scored in a single match last season. CITY SC’s six goals in that match was the highest number of goals they have scored in any match in their short history.

Austin FC comes into the match on a high note after defeating San Jose Earthquakes on the back of a stoppage time penalty by Sebastián Driussi. Driussi’s penalty in the 90’+11th minute against San Jose on Saturday was the latest match-winning goal in MLS history. In seven games, Austin FC boasts a 2-2-3 record but is still looking for their first away win of the season. The Verde and Black have four players with at least two goals this season: Driussi, Julio Cascante, Guilherme Biro and Diego Rubio.
