FRISCO – A healthy FC Dallas will be on the road for this weekend as they face the Seattle Sounders FC on Sunday for the second time in almost a month, with both clubs hanging on a thread as they look to secure a playoff berth with just two matches remaining in the regular season.
Seattle Sounders FC
OUT: Osvaldo Alonso (quad strain), Brad Evans (back), Jordan Morris (hamstring strain)
QUESTIONABLE: Will Bruin (AC joint sprain), Cristian Roldan (forearm fracture)
Some big names for Seattle find themselves on this week's injury report, including two of their top three scorers (Bruin, Roldan), although both could still play. Reigning Rookie of the Year Jordan Morris remains out, as does Ozzie Alonso and Brad Evans for the Sounders.
Following the FIFA international window last week, Seattle will have their seven international players back in contention for Sunday’s matchup with Clint Dempsey (USA), Román Torres (Panama), Nicolás Lodeiro (Uruguay), Joevin Jones (Trinidad & Tobago), Gustav Svensson (Sweden), Nouhou Tolo (Cameroon) and Oniel Fisher (Jamaica) all returning this week.
INT’L DUTY: Bryan Reynolds (U.S. U-17s)
With some regular starters for Seattle potentially missing action on Sunday, Dallas will want to take advantage coming into a crucial and difficult away fixture. FCD comes into this game needing to pick up points in order to avoid a scenario where they will heavily depend on other results to determine their chances of finishing above the playoff line.
