In their fourth meeting this season, FC Dallas are hoping to score their first goal, and claim their first win against Nashville SC when the teams meet Wednesday night at Nissan Stadium.
Both teams have clinched a berth in the 2020 Audi MLS Cup Playoffs, but there's more to play for in their penultimate match of the regular season with postseason positioning at stake. Seventh in the Eastern Conference at 1.38 points per game, Nashville SC (7W-6L-8D) have lost just once in their last 10 games and are coming off a 1-1 draw against Chicago Fire FC, while FC Dallas (8W-5L-7D) are unbeaten in their last three with consecutive wins, including a Texas Derby triumph over the Houston Dynamo and are sixth in the West at 1.55 PPG.
Nashville celebrate a 3-0 victory over FC Dallas in the last meeting Oct. 20 in the Music City, with Randall Leal, Jhonder Cadiz and Daniel Rios scoring. In back-to-back games at Toyota Stadium in a span of five days, Nashville and FC Dallas drew 0-0 after Nashville SC celebrated their first victory, 1-0, on Aug. 17.
