Seattle Sounders at FC Dallas starting lineup: defender Xavier Arreaga makes his first MLS start


Due to weather, tonight's match has been delayed to 6:47 p.m. PT as long as lightning stays clear of the area. 

The Seattle Sounders are taking on FC Dallas on Saturday (5:00 p.m. PT; JOEtv, YouTube TV, Univision-Seattle, 950 KJR AM, El Rey 1360 AM) at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas. Here is the Delta Starting XI:


  • Defender Xavier Arreaga makes his first start for Sounders FC since signing last month, replacing the injured Kim Kee-hee (L knee pain). The Ecuadorian made his club debut as a substitute last weekend at Sporting Kansas City.
  • Midfielder Gustav Svensson returns to the lineup for Sounders FC after missing the past six matches with a strained hamstring. Svensson’s last appearance came on April 24 at San Jose.
  • With Nicolás Lodeiro suspended due to yellow card accumulation, Cristian Roldan occupies the attacking midfield role, flanked by Alex Roldan and Harry Shipp. Roldan is also wearing the captain’s armband for tonight’s match.
  • Fresh off joining the team this week, defender / midfielder Joevin Jones is available as a substitute this evening, making his first appearance in the 18 since signing with the club last month.
