Penalty or no?

Lineups

The weekend is in full swing here as FC Dallas is back at home to close out the month of July with a game against Western Conference rivals Real Salt Lake.

RSL had to deal with the Leagues Cup on Wednesday night against Tigres UNAL. They dropped that match 1-0 but their league form has been decent as of late with three wins in their last five games.


FC Dallas notes:

Last time against RSL. The two sides met back in March up in Utah in the first leg on this “Homegrown Derby” with FC Dallas coming out on top with a lovely 4-2 win. Paxton Pomykal scoring a brace against a RSL side reduced to 10 men when Damir Kreilach was shown a straight red card for a head butt on Carlos Gruezo in the 17th minute.

Key player for FC Dallas - Michael Barrios - If he can be a pest on the wings like we saw a few times last weekend in KC, the attack should be just fine no matter who is in the middle ( Pomykal or Jesus Ferreira).
