The memory is still very fresh in the minds of the FC Dallas squad: a 0-0 draw at CenturyLink Field in Seattle. It was a draw that helped FC Dallas advance to the Audi 2019 MLS Cup Playoffs where they will face ... the Seattle Sounders.
With another trip to Seattle on the horizon, FC Dallas manager Luchi Gonzalez has already issued the rallying cry for his group after a resounding 6-0 victory over Sporting Kansas City in the season finale on Decision Day, presented by AT&T:
"We were just there and we're not afraid," Gonzalez said. "We're not going to be afraid. We know they have great tools and a great environment, but we're going to go try and change the history of this club over there."
Sounders star forward Jordan Morris is definitely not taking them lightly even if FC Dallas are the lowest seed in the West: "We had them here a couple of weeks ago and they made it tough for us."
