FC Dallas plays their first game of 2015 in Toyota Stadium.

Olivia Brestal | FC Dallas

The preseason continues for FC Dallas tonight as they host D.C. United at Toyota Stadium. The two sides are meeting for the second time this week after battling to a 1-0 decision in the ATX Pro Challenge last Sunday in Austin in a match that saw the Black and Red come out on top.

Kickoff time: 7:30PM

Venue: Toyota Stadium, Frisco, TX

Streaming: FCDallas.com

Previews: Plenty of decent preview material to get your ready for this one. We have our "What to Watch For" post up, so does the club's website.

Projected lineups: Just as we saw in Austin, I believe Oscar Pareja will use a fairly strong lineup that will begin to get more minutes collectively. Look for guys like Walker Zimmerman and Atiba Harris to continue to get more time in the defense. Same will likely go for Ryan Hollingshead in the midfield on the right side. We do hope to see some minutes out of guys like Tesho Akindele and Zach Loyd in this match but their status remains unclear at this point.

Prediction: Last week's match was a tight one that did see Dallas do well in the first half. I would expect the main guys to get more minutes for both sides in this one, so expect another low scoring match. Maybe another 1-0 result with FCD coming out on top this time.

What are you drinking?: I'm up in the press box of Toyota Stadium, so water is about all I will be drinking. Though I did have a pint at the Londoner before hand.

Here you go, comment below. We'll be adding lineups and commentary as we go along here.
