Dallas-Union: Lineups and pre-match thoughts

Philadelphia Union
Le Toux-Carroll-Farfan-Cruz
Bench: Konopka, Albright, Torres, Wheeler, Fernandes, Hoppenot, Kassel

FC Dallas 
Bench: Seitz, Nunez, Ferreira, Warshaw, Woodberry, Keel, Hassli 

- Danny Cruz appears to have overcome what sounded like a pretty severe ankle knock to get in the starting XI. We’ll see which side he starts on.

- This is the chance for Michael Farfan. Without Kleberson, Michael Lahoud and Keon Daniel, Farfan returns to his preferred central midfield role. We'll see if he can make a mark on the game in the same way that Daniel has of late.

- As far as Dallas, they’re just going to go for it, it appears. They have Kenny Cooper and Blas Perez in the same side, a bit of a rarity this year. Instead of former MVP David Ferreira operating in the slot, they’re going with more width in the form of Fabian Castillo opposite Jackson. That’ll be a stiff test for the Union defense, both in limiting service from the wings and cutting out the aerial threat presented by the two tall forwards.
