Lineups

For the second week in a row, FC Dallas will be battling an in-state rival on the road as they take on Austin FC in the state capital for the first time.

Austin FC is looking to win back-to-back games for the first time since early May when they won two in a row on the road. FC Dallas on the other hand is looking to continue their unbeaten run on the road that extends back to late July.


FC Dallas notes:

Key player for FC Dallas - Ricardo Pepi - He had a hell of a week with last week’s Texas Derby to the All-Star Game in LA. Now that he is set to go off to the USMNT after this game, it is time to find him in the penalty box and allow him to do what he does best.

Last time out against the guys in green - It wasn’t that long ago that these two met as FC Dallas picked up the first win in the series with a 2-0 win.
