Team News: FC Dallas
There aren’t many selection issues, with just one fitness concern for the FC Dallas manager Luchi Gonzalez to be concerned about from a near full-strength set of players. Paxton Pomykal (Groin Surgery) is out of contention.
Team News: Minnesota United
Minnesota Utd manager Adrian Heath has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Luis Amarilla (Ankle Injury), Osvaldo Alonso (Muscle Injury), Tyler Miller (Hip Injury) and Ike Opara (Unknown Injury) are those who can’t be considered.
It’s likely that Minnesota United will have a difficult task to get a goal against a FC Dallas lineup who will likely win well here.
