It's a hot, balmy 94 degrees tonight here in Frisco as FC Dallas is set to take on the Portland Timbers. This is the return leg of their late April match up in Portland that saw the Timbers barely hold on to a 3-2 win.
The lineup is in tonight for FC Dallas and things are changing due to Fabian Castillo's absence with his recent Colombian call-up. Brek Shea could be getting the call to forward if you based it off Schellas Hyndman's lineup card. We'll see though but I think it could be a 4-1-4-1.
