8.3 Lineup Notes

LINEUP NOTES, pres. by UnitedHealthCare: FC Dallas vs Orlando City SC | 8.3.19

FRISCO, Texas- FC Dallas is on the road this week after a busy week of All-Star events for multiple players. They look to continue their all-time series streak against the Florida team. Let's take a look at tonight's Lineup Notes, presented by UnitedHealthCare. 


Due to a couple minor injuries sustained in practice this week, we see some movement around the frontline of the FC Dallas attack. With Dominique Badji and Michael Barrios questionable for the match, Jesus Ferreira moves back up to the top and we see Santiago Mosquera and Edwin Gyasi to close out the line. This will be Edwin Gyasi's first start since joining FC Dallas in July. He played 21 minutes last week against Real Salt Lake and seems to be learning the FC Dallas system quickly. 


This week we see Bressan in the starting lineup at the right back position due to Reggie Cannon's absence this week following Yellow card accumulation. During Reggie's absence for Gold Cup Bressan stepped in to the position and meshed well with the rest of the veteran backline. He even saw a few opportunities for shots on goal, and success in shutting down the opponents chances. Bressan has proven his ability to step up when needed, and will have another opportunity to build his performance against Orlando City SC. 


Due to another yellow card accumulation on the FC Dallas roster, some shifts in the midfield appear. Paxton Pomykal returns to the 10 spot after playing in the MLS All-Star game and resting for a couple games as a sub. We also see Jacori Hayes return to the starting lineup in Bryan Acosta's spot as he serves his suspension for Yellow Card accumulation. Brandon Servania continues to hold his starting spot in the lineup after playing in the 2019 Homegrown Game this week as well.
