FRISCO, Texas- The 2020 season has finally arrived as FC Dallas hosts the Philadelphia Union in Week 1 at Toyota Stadium. As FC Dallas looks to start the season with a big three points, Let's take a look at the Texas Health Sports Medicine Injury Report.
OUT: Kai Wagner (lower leg injury), Andrew Wooten (quad strain)
Philadelphia will be without defender Kai Wagner who was a key piece of their defense in the 2019 season. He is working through a lower leg injury that will have him sidelined for this match, as well as potentially a couple more for Philadelphia to try and adjust their backline. They also will be without forward Andrew Wooten who has been listed as out due to a quad strain that flared up during preseason training. Without those two pieces of their roster, Philadelphia will look to keep their depth across both the top of the field and the backline in the season opener.
FC Dallas has a pretty healthy roster heading in to the match at Toyota Stadium. Midfielder Bryan Acosta is unavailable as he recovers from an appendectomy that took place early in February. He is progressing but does not have an estimated return window established. Midfielder Brandon Servania is also unavailable this week as he works through a knee injury that he suffered earlier in preseason. FC Dallas has no one questionable this week and will be able to test their roster depth in the midfield against Philadelphia.
