FRISCO - It's the final home match of the regular season - and easily the biggest to date. FC Dallas, with a win, could clinch a top-two bid in the postseason. With some help, it could clinch the regular season Western Conference title.
FCD is back to its likely top look on the penultimate day of the season after two weeks of lineup rotation and international absences. Dominique Badji returns to the top of the formation with Maxi Urruti below him and Michael Barrios and Santiago Mosquera on the wings. The back six returns to it's normal look as Reggie Cannon and Carlos Gruezo are back in the fold after National Team duty last weekend.
He might be one of Dallas' newer players, but Dominique Badji will see his 100th MLS appearance today, his ninth with FCD.
With SKC being one of the two teams chasing FCD in the Western Conference race, today's match could set up a six-point swing heading into the final week. With a win today, Dallas can clinch the coveted first-round bye and if LAFC loses to Vancouver, Dallas would lock up the top spot in the West.
