How to watch
Venue: Toyota Stadium, Frisco, TX
Projected lineups: I think tonight we'll see what should be FCD's normal starting XI, with maybe a couple exceptions like Zach Loyd at right back and Walker Zimmerman starting in the middle of the defense with Matt Hedges. I also think it is a toss up to see who starts at right wing as well, Michael Barrios is a good choice but I wouldn't mind seeing Ryan Hollingshead or Tesho Akindele get a run there as well.
Prediction: Like I stated in our game preview, I'm going with a 3-1 win. Its do-or-die right now for FC Dallas. Three points or bust.
What are you drinking?: I'm taking this one in at the Toyota Stadium press box, so water is what I'll be drinking.
