Squad Selection: Who is in our best lineup to take on Seattle?

New, 14 comments

We know the opponent now, so which lineup makes the most sense?

MLS: FC Dallas at LA Galaxy Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

The MLS Cup Playoffs move to the conference semifinals this weekend as FC Dallas heads to the Pacific Northwest to battle their playoff nemesis the Seattle Sounders.

The two sides have battled it out three times already this season with three largely different results. Oscar Pareja’s side will have the fresher legs in this one as they didn’t have to deal with the Knockout Round like the Sounders did on Thursday night.

The big question will be revolving Pareja’s formation and lineup. Does he stick with a pragmatic 4-4-2 like he deployed last Sunday in Los Angeles? Or does he revert back to the 4-2-3-1?

Here is what we know in terms of availability:

OUT: Zach Loyd (concussion), Mauro Diaz (Achilles)

LOAN: Moises Hernandez (Rayo OKC)

See responses here.


Are you going with Mauro Rosales in the 4-2-3-1? Or do you stick it out with Maxi Urruti and Tesho Akindele in the 4-4-2? Let us know below who is in your lineup this weekend.
