STARTING XI NOTES:

  • For the first time in 21 games this season, the Dynamo will run out a Starting XI that they’ve already used this season. In fact, it’s the same Starting XI from Wednesday night, marking the first time the team started the same 11 players in consecutive games since Sept. 24 and 30, 2016 vs. Portland and vs. New York City FC.
  • MF Memo Rodriguez will make his second consecutive start tonight. He became the third Dynamo Academy alumnus to start a regular-season match for the club on Wednesday night, joining Alex Dixon (1) and Tyler Deric (making his 67th start tonight).
  • MF Alex will make his 19th start of the season, his 58th with the Dynamo and the 105th of his MLS career tonight.
  • Alex will continue his string of playing in every game this season. He and DF Adolfo Machado are the only players to have played every game this season for the team.
  • DF DaMarcus Beasley will make his 15th start of the season and the 165th of his career tonight.
  • MF Juan David Cabezas will be making his 15th consecutive start and his 16th overall this season.

  • GK Tyler Deric will be making his 67th career start tonight and his 13th of the season.

  • DF Adolfo Machado started his 21st consecutive game. He is the only player on the team to have started every game this season.
  • FW Mauro Manotas will make his 26th start for the Dynamo in MLS regular-season play tonight and his 16th of the season.
