Seattle Sounders FC lead the two-leg aggregate goal series 3-0 after leg one. The match would only go to extra time if the score is 3-0 in FC Dallas’ favor. It would go to PKs if tied at the end of extra time. The away goal tie-breaker is only active during the 90 minute game. This graphic shows the possible outcomes from today’s match.
Head Coach, the team ripped “interim” off his title on Wednesday, Brian Schmetzer is clear. The organization will not sit back and absorb FCD’s pressure. The Sounders are playing to win the game.
Hilario Grajeda is the center referee. Clint Dempsey is still out due to a heart issue. Andreas Ivanschitz is out with a knee sprain. Alvaro Fernandez is out with a hamstring issue. Oalex Anderson and Roman Torres are listed as questionable. FC Dallas will be without Zach Loyd and Mauro Diaz. Osvaldo Alonso and Maynor Figueroa will miss their next playoff game if they earn a yellow card tonight.
