Back in the 4-3-3
Both teams are coming off big July 4th wins as FCD knocked off Atlanta in thrilling fashion while RSL downed Sporting KC 4-2.
FC Dallas notes:
Last time against RSL. The two squad faced off at the beginning of the season in Frisco as they ended that game level on a 1-1 draw.
Recent success at Rio Tinto. FC Dallas is 1-0-1 in their last two trips to Sandy, UT. Dallas won 3-0 in its last trip to Salt Lake City on May 6, 2017. Maxi Urruti scored in the third minute via PK and with a smart finish in stoppage-time and Matt Hedges scored FCD’s second goal in the 67th minute.
Key player. Maxi Urruti - As we saw late in the game on Wednesday against Atlanta, Urruti was a catalyst to setting up Tesho Akindele’s first goal. FC Dallas will need more of that out of him and guys like Roland Lamah or Santiago Mosquera.
