Red Bulls to face FC Dallas without Angel


Red Bulls forward Juan Pablo Angel will miss the team’s match against FC Dallas on Saturday with a hamstring strain that forced him to miss practice this week. He did not travel with the team to Texas.

Angel’s absence likely means that Jozy Altidore and Oscar Echeverry will partner up top against FC Dallas, while John Wolyniec provides depth. It should be interesting to see how Altidore and Echeverry play together considering they didn’t get a chance to play together much at all this pre-season.

I will get into more detail on the lineup I see the Red Bulls using and the rest of the preview of FC Dallas match tomorrow.

What lineup would you like to see Osorio use against FC Dallas? Share your thoughts below.


  1. I heard an interview with Dallas keeper Dario Sala. He said he was excited to face Juan Pablo Angel since they were teammates at River Plate in Argentina. It would have marked the first time the two played against each other. Pretty disappointing but here’s to a speedy recovery for Angel.

  2. Lol I’m with you Matt, we’ve had less injuries to this point than in the past from things like pulls and strains, can’t control something like Freeman hurt away from the team or Richards cuz of a bad tackle by another team.

  3. Angel hurt?

    Ironic how a coach who is supposedly such an expert on strength and conditioning keeps having players pull up lame.

  4. Should be Magee playing in behind the strikers, so a 4-3-1-2 rather than a straight 4-4-2. I’d be surprised if we saw Ubi start again after being taken off at HT last week.

  5. I think Osorio needs to put this lineup out:







    JCO likes Reyna in the AM spot, but due to injuries and Ubi/Borman struggles you gotta keep DVB on the wing and keep Ubi as a sub. Especially with Dallas’ offense and Parke out, I bet JCO puts Reyna back at DM w/Stammler and leave Magee behind the forwards. That’s the strongest lineup I see with who is available.

  6. I see the lineup for this game looking as follows:

    Altidore Echevary

    DVB Renya Ubi Sanasso

    Goldie Stammer Mendez Leich


    JCO has said he plans to play 4 in the back away from home and with the injuries and suspensions in hand I think this is the most likely lineup. Renya will look to get up the field more but, in this game look for the red bulls to play a much more counter attacking style of soccer.
