Lineups

FC Dallas travels down to BBVA Stadium to take on Houston Dynamo in the third and final Texas Derby match this season.

This game will decide the outcome of who gets to keep El Capitan as the previous two meetings in 2021 ended in a draw. If the clubs tie for a third time, FCD would retain possession of El Capitán. Dallas can also clinch the inaugural MLS Copa Tejas title by taking all three points.


FC Dallas notes:

Key player for FC Dallas - Ricardo Pepi - Until he cools off again, the main guy for FC Dallas to go to in this one has to continue to be El Tren.

All-time in Houston - FC Dallas has a 13-12-16 (64 goals for, 57 goals against) all-time regular season record against Houston. The club’s all-time away record against the Dynamo is 4-9-8 (29 GF, 34 GA).

Consistency matters - This season, FC Dallas has fielded 22 different lineups in25 matches only using the same lineup in back-to-back games on June 27/July 4, July 17/July 21 and July 31/Aug. 4.
