Lineups

FC Dallas looks to find their first win of the 2022 season as they host Nashville SC.

Nashville continues their long road trip to begin the season as look to open their new stadium in May. Last weekend, they picked up a draw in Minnesota. Dallas is coming off a loss in New England.


FC Dallas notes:

Key player for FC Dallas - Alan Velasco - He’s probably not going to get the start but Nico Estevez has made it known this week that we’re likely to see him come off the bench in this one. We’re all eager to see what he actually brings to this team.

Burrr, it’s cold - FC Dallas has won just one of its last 14 matches dating back to the beginning of September 2021 (D6 L7). The nine points Dallas has collected in that time is second-worst in MLS ahead of only FC Cincinnati (3).

The short history against Nashville - After collecting one point and scoring no goals in the first three meetings, FC Dallas earned a 1-0 win over Nashville in the most recent match between the sides, back in November 2020. That result remains one of only two home losses for Nashville and the only home defeat in the last two years.
