Arango is currently on a hot streak though.
His goal in the 42nd minute extended his goal streak to four games. The last time Arango didn’t score was nearly a month ago against the Houston Dynamo.

Arango’s goal could have been predicted when you look at his current streak combined with his playing history against FC Dallas.
He’s scored five goals in just three matches against the Texas club.

“The west is a logjam,” Mastroeni said. “One point or less will move the needle. Whether we are home or away, we want to go for those three.”
Despite key players missing time as of late, Mastroeni believes the club is prepared to finish strong.
“I think we’re set up in a really good position to fight as a group, to compete as a group, and to play as a group,” Mastroeni said.
