MLS: FC Dallas at New York City FC Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

And one more from Villa

Handball costs FCD, Villa PK give City lead

Santiago Mosquera opens his MLS count!

NYCFC strike first.

Lineup for the bad guys:

NYCFC too lazy to to organize their players by formation. Opts to list them instead.

FCD lineups are in:

FCD going with the 4-4-2 again and giving Colman and Mosquera another run of minutes. This pleases us.


What was once the potential matchup of the remaining unbeaten teams in MLS is no more. FC Dallas kept their unbeaten run alive last weekend at home in a 2-0 win over Philadelphia while New York City FC failed to keep their streak going with a 3-0 loss at Portland.

Still, both sides are playing good soccer these days and today’s match should be one of the better ones on this weekend.


FC Dallas notes:

All-time vs NYCFC. FC Dallas 1-0-2 in all-time meetings with City. The previous meeting in the Bronx saw the two sides play to a 2-2 draw back in 2016. Last year, they tied a mid-May matchup in Frisco 1-1.

Key player. Santiago Mosquera - If the Young DP gets another start this week, he’ll be a big player on the wing for FCD’s attack. Dallas will want to use the limited space available at Yankee Stadium to get Mosquera open in front of net.
