FC Dallas vs Seattle Sounders: Lineup notes 📝
Can FC Dallas find a rare win in Seattle tonight?
For the second straight game, it is do-or-die for FC Dallas as they face off against the Seattle Sounders in a decisive Game Three in their Round One series in the MLS Cup Playoffs.
Both teams have their lineups submitted, so let’s dive into what we’re working with on both sides.
Changes from the last match
But yeah, this sucks. Ferreira is out for this one as Nico Estevez has to shift back to a 4-4-2 to make up for it. Paxton Pomykal gets a weird spot in the attack with Jader Obrian. Paul Arriola and Bernard Kamungo are on the wings again with Liam Fraser and Asier Illarramendi in the middle of the park.
The defense remains the same as Game Two, Ema Twumasi and Sam Junqua are on the wings with Nkosi Tafari and Sebastian Ibeagha in the middle with Maarten Paes in goal.
Who we could see in the second half
Based on the way that Estevez has been handling his subs, it makes sense to see Dante Sealy and Eugene Ansah at some point in the second half. Maybe, just maybe, we’ll see Sebastian Lletget make his return too for a limited time.
Out: Tarik Scott (ACL/MCL - season-ending injury), Geovane Jesus (right knee), Alan Velasco (knee), Nolan Norris (rest), Jesus Ferreira, Marco Farfan
International Duty: none
