With less than an hour before kickoff, lineups have been released for both the Dynamo and the Galaxy. Heading into the match, the only question mark for the Dynamo was the health of forward Calen Carr. Although he was not listed on Friday's injury report, it was not known if he was fit to go a full 90 or if Kinnear would use the energetic Macoumba Kandji to start the match. That question was answered with the release of today's lineup.
