FC Dallas finishes up their 2015 preseason play with a Texas-size match against NASL champions San Antonio Scorpions.
The two sides met twice last year, once in the preseason that ended in a 1-1 draw, and a second time in the US Open Cup that saw FCD advance. Both sides should have plenty of familiarity between then with Marvin Chavez recently signing with the Scorpions and former FCD forward Eric Hassli remaining an option in their attack.
Key player for FCD: Blas Perez. The offense continues to look strong in the preseason but it is about high time that El Raton gets going here before the season starts. Perez has done well so far this preseason but it would be nice to see him get involved a little more in the attack for FCD, especially on the road like this.
Biggest question: Will this game be enough to get the team ready for next weekend?
This preseason has gone by rather quickly with limited games. The big thought going into it is has FCD done enough to prepare themselves for the upcoming season. This game certainly should help get them there. San Antonio was a strong side last year in the NASL but their roster isn't entirely full just yet. I would expect Oscar Pareja to use this game to get his core group of players 80-90 minutes again like he did a week ago against DCU.
Match date/time: Saturday 2/28, 7:00 PM
Venue: Toyota Field, San Antonio, TX
