Fc Dallas vs Austin Fc Aus Picks and Predictions May 11th 2024

Austin FC is gearing up to keep their winning streak alive as they head into a high-stakes face-off with FC Dallas this Saturday. The vibe is intense as these two Texan teams go head-to-head in the notorious Texas Derby in Frisco, Texas. Austin is riding high with an impressive defense, not letting a single goal slip by in over 303 minutes—a stellar record they’re hoping to keep up. Meanwhile, FC Dallas is desperate to shake off a rough patch and snag a much-needed win on their home turf.

Austin’s Rock-Solid Defense:

Austin FC (sitting pretty with 16 points from a 4-3-4 record) has been on fire since late March, boasting a 4-1-1 record. Goalkeeper Brad Stuver is basically a human wall, leading MLS with 58 saves this season. Austin’s coach, Josh Wolff, can’t stop raving about the squad’s fitness and grit, especially on the defensive end. He’s all about that classic soccer wisdom: to win, you’ve gotta defend like your life depends on it. “The best teams in the world defend, and they work extremely hard without the ball. It’s a requirement of the game,” Wolff said in a press meet, driving home just how key a tight defense is to their game plan.

FC Dallas’s Home Turf Woes:

Flip the script and you’ve got FC Dallas, who’ve been kinda stuck in a rut. They’re down at 13th in the Western Conference with just 8 points from a 2-6-2 record. Sure, they snagged a win in the recent U.S. Open Cup, but their league performance? Not so hot, with only one win in their last six games. They’re really hoping to turn that around, especially since they historically play well against Austin at home.

Rivalry Records:

When it comes to past face-offs, Dallas has had the upper hand with a 5-3-2 record against Austin. They’ve managed to keep Austin at bay during home games, winning three out of four. That’s a stat they’re probably clinging to as the derby approaches, adding an extra layer of excitement to this matchup.

Spotlight on Key Players:

Austin’s secret weapon? Brad Stuver and his incredible goalkeeping. But let’s not overlook FC Dallas’s Jesus Ferreira, who’s just coming back from a muscle injury. He’s a key playmaker and showed his chops with an assist in last week’s game against Toronto.

Looking Ahead:

FC Dallas’s coach, Nico Estevez, is feeling the pressure of a tight game schedule but knows what’s at stake. “It will be nice if the games are a little bit more spread out… but for us, it is important. We played Austin, so we understand what we need to do,” he stated, emphasizing the need for strategic planning and execution.


This Saturday’s Texas Derby isn’t just another game—it’s a battle for pride, points, and the chance to dominate the state rivalry. Austin wants to keep their defensive streak and climb higher in the standings. Dallas? They just want to get back on track with a win at home. It’s gearing up to be an epic showdown in Texas.
