Last night’s game was both exciting and brutal. Exciting due to the win but brutal due to the travel involved in going to LA and the extra 30 minutes of playing time. Once again FC Dallas will be faced with a quick turn around here as they return home for a game Saturday night against Sporting Kansas City.
Oscar Pareja used his strongest available lineup in the semifinal win last night out in LA, so now the question has to be asked, what does he do on Saturday against KC? One might imagine that he would rest Mauro Diaz, maybe Matt Hedges and Chris Seitz a bit after their extended performance in LA. Or he could see those guys recover quickly enough for this home game against SKC.
Here is what we do know in terms of player availability:
OUT: Zach Loyd (concussion)
LOAN: Moises Hernandez (Rayo OKC), Timo Pitter (Energy FC)
How does your lineup look for Saturday? Are you giving some key guys a rest? Lets sound off on that below.
