  • The teams are meeting for the first time this season, the first of a home-and-home series over the season’s final four weeks. The teams did meet in a U.S. Open Cup semifinal, FC Dallas taking a 2-1 win in extra time Aug. 10 at StubHub Center, Victor Ulloa scoring the late game-winning goals.
  • The Galaxy have won the last two league meetings between the teams, once at each ground. The Galaxy’s win Aug. 15, 2015 at Toyota Stadium ending a two-game FCD home winning streak, their first victories at home vs. the Galaxy since 2011. The Galaxy are undefeated in Carson over the last eight meetings vs. FC Dallas in league play, dating back to the start of the 2010 season, going 7-0-1 in that time.
