Game one of the two-game must-win home stand happens tonight as FC Dallas (32 points, 8-12-8) hosts Seattle Sounders FC (43 points, 12-6-7).

The lineups are out!

FC Dallas: Harman, Loyd, John, Hedges, Benitez, de Guzman, Jacobson, Jackson, Shea, Ferreira, Perez

Bench: Seitz, Pertuz, Rodriguez, Marcelin, Leyva, Hernandez, Sealy

Seattle Sounders FC: Gspurning, Johansson, Ianni, Parke, Gonzalez, Evans, Alonso, Tiffert, Rosales, Zakuani, Montero

Bench: Ford, Scott, Martinez, Burch, Ochoa, Carrasco, Caskey

Notes

The lineup is about as expected for FCD tonight. Blas Perez makes his first start in months while Jackson returns at right mid for the injured Fabian Castillo. Everything else is unchanged from the loss to LA.

For Seattle, Steve Zakuani makes his first MLS start in well over a year while Fredy Montero starts as well.

Prediction(12-15 on the season): Like FC Dallas to get the W tonight as a very motivated team in an extremely hot environment. Seattle has had a lot of success in Frisco, but tonight's is going to be a very very tough environment with all the heat.

2-1 FC Dallas
