THURSDAY NIGHT PREVIEW
FC DALLAS- NEW YORK
(ESPN2, 8 pm ET/7 pm CT)

After winning back-to-back games at home, the unbeaten Red Bulls return to the road, where they face FC Dallas in a matchup of conference leaders.

It's a battle of MLS's best offense against its best defense. FC Dallas has scored seven goals and given up seven -- the most in both categories. NYRB has yet to concede a goal in three games.

New York won, 3-0, when the teams met 11 days ago. Clint Mathis, who had a goal and an assist in that game, is suspended for the rematch. In FCD's home opener on Sunday, a 3-1 win over Colorado, Ramon Nunez scored twice.

The early season class of Major League Soccer meets on ESPN Primetime Thursday this week, as the New York Red Bulls travel to Frisco to take on FC Dallas. The teams met just 11 days ago, the Red Bulls claiming a 3-0 victory as they caught FC Dallas on the back end of two games in four days with a cross-country trip in between. The teams both have seven points on the season to lead the MLS overall table. The Red Bulls have yet to lose this season - and yet to concede a goal, while FC Dallas has just the loss to New York, but has scored the most goals in the league this year.
