2. The Cobra picks up where he left off
Zdenek Ondrasek came to form late in 2019. He scored all seven of his goals in the final two months of the regular season last year. With such a streaky run last year, no one really knew if he could extend that form over a longer period in 2020.

On Saturday, he showed his good form has carried over from the end of last season and perhaps he might just able to maintain his scoring form throughout the entire year — that, given the creativity of the FC Dallas midfield, would be huge for the team.
Ondrasek’s goal was a top-class strike. Receiving the ball on the edge of the penalty area, his first touch was perfect, spinning as he controlled the ball to set himself up for a shot. Using a run outside of him to attract the defender’s attention and create space for the shot, Ondrasek then fired an arrow into the bottom corner from distance.
Dallas might have a highly productive striker pairing in the works if Franco Jara and Ondrasek can form a connection when the Liga MX forward arrives. And with the strength of the squad at other position, Luchi Gonzalez’s side could be on their way to the playoffs.
