FC Dallas vs Seattle Sounders Predicted Lineups and Team News

In this Saturday evening clash, Dallas and Seattle Sounders are set to face off at the Toyota Stadium. Dallas showed their resilience in their last game, clawing back to secure a 2-2 draw against Atlanta United. On the other hand, Seattle Sounders couldn’t hold onto a two-goal lead in their last match, settling for a 2-2 draw against the Portland Timbers.

Dallas aims to maintain their solid home form, having been unbeaten in four of their last five MLS matches at home. Meanwhile, Seattle, currently second in the Western Conference standings, looks to bounce back. However, history isn’t on their side, with only one win in their last 12 visits to the Toyota Stadium.

Team News: FC Dallas

In Dallas FC team news, 18-year-old forward Tarik Scott remains sidelined due to an ACL injury, extending his unfortunate spell away from the pitch. Along with him, the manager Nico Estévez won’t have Bernard Kamungo at his disposal because of an injury. This can be worrying as he scored the crucial second goal for his in their last game against Atlanta.

On the brighter side, 22-year-old Jesus Ferreira who has been a key figure this season, will be starting. Fresh off an assist against Atlanta United in the last match, he has contributed to a total of 11 goals. Expect him to lead the charge in the attack once more, partnering with Alan Velasco.

Team News: Seattle Sounders

Turning our attention to the Seattle Sounders, there’s a notable absence as Brazilian winger Chu won’t be available due to suspension following a red card in the last game against Portland.

In Chu’s stead, the veteran forward Nicolas Lodeiro is expected to make his return to the starting lineup. He’ll be joining forces with Rusnak, Morris, and the 33-year-old striker Ruidiaz in the final third.

Unfortunately, Seattle will also be without Dylan Teves and Kelyn Rowe due to injuries. Teves is recovering from a hamstring issue, while Rowe is nursing a muscle injury.

Seattle Sounders Predicted Lineups

Stefan Frei; Alex Roldán, Yeimar Gómez Andrade, Jackson Ragen, Nouhou Tolo; Obed Vargas, João Paulo; Jordan Morris, Albert Rusnák, Nicolas Lodeiro; Raúl Ruidíaz.

Will Bernard Kamungo Play Today?

No, Kamungo will not be playing against Seattle as he is out with a shoulder injury. It is uncertain when he will be fit to play for his team again, as announced by the manager Estevez.

Kamungo was injured and subbed off after scoring the equalizer for his team against Atlanta.
