Squad Selection: What is the best group to battle SKC?

FC Dallas hits the road for another tough battle in KC.

MLS: Pachuca at FC Dallas Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

We’re midway through the month of August and so far things haven’t been going FC Dallas’ way as they enter Saturday’s match with Sporting Kansas City on a three-game winless streak.

Oscar Pareja has floated around a couple different lineups as of late as he attempts to figure out what to do with Mauro Diaz in his attack. Last weekend against Colorado he went back to the 4-4-2 that had Cristian Colman up top with Maxi Urruti. The team created a ton of chances against the Rapids but none worked out in the 0-0 draw.

This week could be a different story against a high-pressure team like SKC. Dallas will probably want to sit back a bit more, so a five-man midfield may be the key in that.

Here is what we know going into the match in terms of availability:

LOAN: Anibal Chala (LDU Quito)

No official word yet from the club as to whether or not Luis Gonzalez has his ITC and Visa in as of this writing. More than likely he will not be available for this weekend’s game.
