It is currently 104 degrees in Frisco, Texas and while it's going to cool off as the evening goes along but cooling off from 104 degrees isn't saying a whole lot. It's a strong lineup for FC Dallas and much to the chagrin of Sounders fans and barbers everywhere, Brek Shea gets the start. With so few changes to the lineups from CCL play, expect both sides to use all of their subs this evening.
The big news for Seattle is twofold; Mike Fucito will start up-top alongside Fredy Montero, making this just his second start in MLS with the first coming against...FC Dallas, back in May. The other big news is that James Riley will get a night off in favor of Zach Scott, and that's not something we see very often at all.
FC Dallas Starting XI:
Kevin Hartman; Jackson, Zach Loyd, Ugo Ihemelu, Jair Benitez; Brek Shea, Daniel Hernandez, Daniel Cruz, Marvin Chavez; Ricardo Villar, Maicon Santos
