Dallas - Chicago

I expect brutal reaction from Dallas after 0-5 midweek loss. First of all, coach Oscar Pareja didn't start M Michael Barrios, F Fabian Castillo, M Mauro Diaz, M Carlos Gruezo and D Matt Hedges against Seattle, that explains a bit final outcome. Now all leaders are well-rested so expect usual effort from Dallas.
They are far and away the best team in the league. Yes, Colorado is close as far as points are concerned (three behind the league leaders) but Dallas has played more attractive soccer.
FCD play very strong at home having +7=3-0 record this season. They have steady defence with 3 clean sheets in last 4 home games and 8 this season overall. But Dallas true strength comes from their dynamic midfield. While many 4-2-3-1 formations include two holding midfielders (like when Paunovic utilizes the formation) or one holding midfielder and a pivoting midfielder that links up with the attack, Pareja generally utilizes two attack minded midfielders. The preferred starting two have recently been Kellyn Acosta and Carlos Gruezo with Victor Ulloa filling in during schedule congestion or injury spells. The pair had a 78% pass completion rate against San Jose, and 88% pass completion rate against Orlando and an 80% pass completion rate against Real Salt Lake. A majority of those passes were made into the final third.
They got speed on the wings. Wingers specifically allow them to charge down the sideline in a combined 77% of attacks. Michael Barrios and Fabian Castillo have speed. And I yet to mention maestro Diaz (15/2 + 7 assists) and Urutti (18/4 + 3 assists). Oh yes , they netted 31 goals already including 20 in 10 home games this season.

Hmmm. Chicago. Well. They should lost to Kansas midweek:
Total shots 3-19
Possession 32 68
But its not all about the stats. Kansas should took an early lead but referee wrongly ruled out goal. Visitors also hit the woodwork (just mentioning). I doubt that Chicago will have such luck on their side every time. Especially away from home where they were totally outplayed by injury-hit Toronto last time (and almost in every game this season).
The Fire hasnt won away game since 14.07.2014 and dont see it coming soon.
They put strong effort at home but are pushovers in visits.
Ive said enough about Chicago previously. No need to repeat myself.

Dallas plays very good football at home. Chicago is horrible away from home. Dallas rested all key guns midweek, Chicago played with all starters + had flight.
