As rivalry trophies go, El Capitán is quite possible one of the largest in sports. The Civil War-era mountain howitzer is awarded to the winner of the season series between the Dynamo and FC Dallas. Because of the new unbalanced schedule in MLS, the two teams will meet only once in 2012. If the game ends in a tie on Saturday and the teams do not meet in the MLS Cup final, the Dynamo will retain El Capitán for another season.
After missing three defenders (Cameron, Hainault, Taylor) and a midfielder (Watson) for the Vancouver match due to international duty, the Dynamo expect to be at full strength when they take on FC Dallas on Saturday. Cameron and Hainault returned to training on Thursday, while Watson and Taylor are expected back on Friday.
FC Dallas returns Panamanian striker Blas Perez from World Cup qualifying duty. All-Star midfielder Brek Shea was not with the USMNT, but was listed as "Out" on Tuesday's injury report. Keep an eye on Friday's injury report to see if the Dallas midfielder will play.
