STARTING XI NOTES:

  • GK Joe Willis will make his 76th career start in MLS regular-season play and his 54th with the Dynamo this evening.
  • Willis can record his 15th clean sheet in MLS regular-season play and his fourth of the season.
  • Willis can earn his 22nd career win as a starter and improve his record this season to 7-8-4, which would extend his career high in wins.
  • DF Andrew Wenger will make his 15th start of the season and his 16th appearance of the year tonight.
  • DF Alejandro Fuenmayor will make his 15th start of the season and his 16th appearance this evening.
  • Fuenmayor returns to the starting lineup after receiving a red card on August 4.
  • DF Philippe Senderos will make his sixth start of the season and his eighth start in league play for the Dynamo.
  • Senderos could score his fifth goal for the club, which would be more than he has scored with any club in his career. He had four goals for Arsenal from 2003-10.
  • DF DaMarcus Beasley will make his 18th start of the season, his 102nd with the Dynamo and the 190th of his MLS career tonight.
  • MF Boniek García will make his 14th start and 21st appearance of the year. For his career, it will be his 130th start and 161st appearance in MLS regular-season play.
  • MF Tomás Martínez will make his 27th career start and will play in his 32nd MLS game.
  • MF Darwin Cerén will make his 13th start with the Dynamo and his 80th MLS regular season start this evening.
  • Cerén returns to the starting lineup after receiving a red card on August 4.
  • FW Memo Rodriguez will make his 24th career appearance and his sixth start.
  • Rodriguez could equal his scoring total from 2017 with one goal, which would be his second of the season.
  • FW Mauro Manotas will be making his 100th appearance for the club across all competitions.
  • Manotas will make his 55th career start and will play in his 87th career game.
  • Manotas needs two goals to set a new club single-season record across all competitions. He currently has 15 goals (11 MLS, 4 USOC), which is one shy of Will Bruin’s total (12 MLS, 4 USOC) in 2012.
  • Manotas needs three goals to tie the club single-season record of 14 goals set by Erick “Cubo” Torres in 2017.
  • Manotas needs one goal to move into the top five in club regular-season history, tying Ricardo Clark with 28 career goals.
  • FW Romell Quioto will make his 19th start of the season and the 33rd of his MLS career.
  • Quioto needs one assist to reach 15 with the Dynamo in regular-season play, which would tie him with former Dynamo DF/MF Geoff Cameron for eighth on the club’s all-time list.
