Does Oscar Pareja continue to rotate players ahead of the Knockout Round?

MLS: FC Dallas at Colorado Rapids Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Things have not gone well for FC Dallas over the last few weeks as they’ve dropped three straight games heading into tomorrow’s Knockout Round game against the Portland Timbers.

Dallas was able to secure home field advantage against a Portland side that rested key players on Decision Day this past weekend.

Lately we’ve seen Oscar Pareja rotate through some players in his attack, while keeping the same shape in the midfield and defense. When things were working in September, Maxi Urruti and company were humming along nicely up front but lately the attack has struggled to get anything going.

Does Pareja make one final gamble and use Pablo Aranguiz in the number 10 role with Urruti up top again as a lone striker? Or will he continue down this path with Urruti in the playmaker role?

What do you want to see happen on Wednesday night?

Here is what we know in terms of availability for Wednesday’s game (some of the loaned players could end up not being on loan, those are fluid each week):

OUT: Cristian Colman (torn ACL)

LOAN: Anibal Chala (L.D.U. Quinto), Adonijah Reid (Ottawa), Francis Atahuene & Ema Twumasi (OKC Energy), Moises Hernandez (San Antonio)
