Wednesday night at 8pm the Red Bulls will travel to Pizza Hut Park in Frisco Texas to take on FC Dallas. Dallas has a lot of dangerous attacking weapons, but they have been struggling recently. Brek Shea has had a dip in form the last month or so for his club. I'm not sure Dallas would be my first choice to see in the wild card round, but they're still very much a beatable team at the moment. What does everyone think of our chances?
And one side note about the last game. Against Philadelphia we improvised the position for the 4-4-2. Dax played as a slightly wide midfielder and always looked to play Solli down the wing. When Solli went up, Marquez pinched right and along with McCarty covered the space. The team took a risk tactically and it paid off. I hope Backe doesn't simply revert to the standard formation that led to so many stagnant performances this season (16 ties!) and plays another variation.
