Winless streak at FC Dallas so rough for RSL that merely a lead would feel good

So how bad is that winless streak at FC Dallas that RSL hopes to break tonight?

Yikes, it's even worse that we realized.

Not only is the team 0-8-1 all-time at FC Dallas, mostly at the Oven Formerly Known as Pizza Hut Park, but it has scarcely even come close to winning there. The Climbing the Ladder blog on the league web site went back and checked the math, and discovered that RSL has led for precisely … 21 minutes of that stretch.

That's just 2.6 percent of the 810 minutes played.

The Hoops, meanwhile, have led 53.1 percent of the time, which is the most among seven teams with home unbeaten streaks of at least nine games against a particular opponent.

The longest such streak is New York's 14-gamer against the New England Revolution, followed by San Jose's 13-game run against Sporting KC, Sporting KC's 11-game streak against Colorado and Colorado's 10-game streak against New England.

Of course, RSL managed a scoreless draw at FC Dallas last season, and another one of those would certainly make it look like the team is trending up in Texas.
