LINEUP NOTES, pres. by UnitedHealthcare: FC Dallas at Los Angeles Football Club | 5.16.19

LOS ANGELES - FC Dallas opens up a home-and-home series with LAFC tonight and Luchi Gonzalez has shown another tactical shift in his Starting XI.

THE 3-4-2-1

With the high-flying LAFC attack, Dallas will debut a 3-4-2-1 look very similar to the one they used against Atlanta on April 20. Bressan makes his return to the lineup with John Nelson making his second straight start, replacing Ryan Hollingshead on the left flank. Jacori Hayes and Bryan Acosta will patrol the midfield with Michael Barrios and Jesus Ferreira sitting wide above them.

COBRA'S FIRST START

After a strong performance last week off the bench, Zdenek Ondrasek will make his first start and fifth appearance overall since joining FCD. With four shots to his stat line, the Cobra will look to make an impact atop the formation and be a target forward for Barrios and Ferreira on either side of him. 

NEW FACES ON THE BENCH

Dealing with call-ups and injuries this week, Bryan Reynolds and Ema Twumasi will make their first appearances on an 18-man roster this season for FCD. Reynolds has been on one other gameday roster for the first team since signing in 2016 - Oct. 16, 2018 in D.C. The Homegrown has started every game this season for North Texas SC. Twumasi has just one MLS appearance to his name since being drafted in the first round of the 2018 SuperDraft.
