Lineups


FC Dallas looks to make it three in a row on Saturday as they head to Kansas to battle rivals Sporting Kansas City.

Luchi Gonzalez’s side is coming off two straight wins at home over the past week and will look to upend Sporting and their bid to return to the top of the Western Conference. Peter Vermes’ side is coming off a 1-0 win over Minnesota earlier this week, a win that snapped a four-game winless streak for them.


FC Dallas notes:

Last time out against SKC - The teams are meeting for the second time this season, with the first match coming just a couple of weeks ago. Franco Jara gave FCD an early lead, but Khiry Shelton equalized just before halftime. The game ended level after 90 minutes.

Key player for FC Dallas - Michael Barrios - It seems like Barrios is out of his funk that he was in earlier this season and is now getting more and more comfortable with this new attack that includes Jara and Andres Ricaurte. This game feels like one that could see his speed on the wings as an asset to help drive the Dallas attack.
