There isn’t much expected from Austin FC coming into their second season. Austin FC had the fourth-worst record in the MLS in 2021, but at least the team wasn’t an abject disaster. Cecilio Dominguez, Diego Fagundez, and Sebastian Driussi were all competent on the attack, combining for 19 goals in league play, and that gives Austin FC something to build on for the future. Still, it looks like the postseason is at least another year away after Austin allowed 56 goals last year.

Austin FC 2022 Preview

What a difference a year makes! Austin FC has been one of the most exciting teams in the MLS through the first third of the 2022 season, and this team might go from worst to first. Diego Fagundez has been one of the best playmakers in the league, and he is tied for the league lead with seven assists through 13 matches. Sebastian Driussi is one of the leaders in the Golden Boot race with eight goals and four assists to his name, and Cecilio Dominguez is back after a month-long suspension. That has Austin abuzz, as this team has already surpassed both Lone Star State rivals.

The attack has really clicked, and the defense has improved drastically after some offseason acquisitions. Although Jhojan Valencia hasn’t worked out as expected, Alexander Ring has been a solid defensive midfielder and Ruben Gabrielsen has been an excellent center back. Nick Lima has been solid in defense too, giving this club hope that it can make the postseason in its second year of existence.

Austin has doubled up its opponents with 27 goals and 14 goals allowed through 13 matches, but the xG numbers show that the second half of the season may be really tough for this team. Their xG For is currently 1.34, while their xG Against is 1.43, so we might see some heavy regression to the mean.

Austin FC Past Results

2021 9-21-4 12th Cancelled

Austin FC was announced as an expansion franchise in 2018 and became the MLS’ 27th team in 2021. They immediately established rivalries with fellow Texas teams FC Dallas and the Houston Dynamo, but they couldn’t find much success on the field in their inaugural season. They finished 24th in the overall league table, but they were one point ahead of Houston and just two points behind Dallas as Texas teams were not good in 2021.

The franchise didn’t have to wait long for its first win, going on the road to beat the Colorado Rapids 3-1 in their second match. They had to play the first two months of the season on the road though, as the league wanted to give the construction crew ample time to finish Austin’s new stadium. They finally made their home debut on June 27, 2021, and they drew the Columbus Crew 0-0 in front of a sellout crowd. Austin hammered the Portland Timbers 4-1 in its next match on July 1 to record its first home victory.
