FC Dallas hopes to end skid against Minnesota

FC Dallas will look to its home-pitch advantage to try to snap a two-match losing streak when it hosts surging Minnesota United on Saturday evening at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas.

The Huntsmen, who fell 2-1 at Seattle on Aug. 11 in their most recent match, are still atop the Western Conference standings (12-5-6, 42 points), but losses in their past two games have sliced their lead to three points over Sporting Kansas City and Los Angeles FC.

Dallas' only goal in last week's setback came from striker Dominique Badji, who was playing in his first match with the team after being obtained in a trade with Colorado on July 23. Badji's goal in the 53rd minute evened the match.
