The Earthquakes head into Saturday’s match following a 3-1 win against Western Conference leaders FC Dallas. The Quakes are undefeated in three consecutive matches against Dallas dating back to April 2017.
Dating back to 2008, the Quakes have only lost to Colorado four times in 24 encounters, holding a 10-4-10 record.
Player to Watch
Following the Quakes’ last match, Vako became just the second player to score two or more goals in a match against FC Dallas in the 2018 MLS regular season (Josef Martinez, Atlanta). Vako has now tallied six goals and four assists in just 22 appearances this season.
The Quakes are one of two teams in the West to defeat Western Conference leaders FC Dallas in the 2018 MLS regular season (Real Salt Lake).
Ending the Streak
The Quakes are the first team to defeat FC Dallas at Toyota Stadium in MLS regular season play since July 29, 2017, when they lost to Vancouver Whitecaps FC.
The Quakes have only conceded two goals in their past four matches in all competitions (Manchester United, Seattle Sounders FC, Real Salt Lake and FC Dallas).
Among all active players in MLS, Earthquakes forward Chris Wondolowski is currently the all-time goal scoring leader against the Colorado Rapids with 11 goals in 25 appearances.
