Schellas Hyndman always says that the US Open Cup is the quickest and easiest way into the CONCACAF Champions League. Well, the gaffer may be happy to see that his club could be home for another round as FC Dallas could potentially host the quarterfinals should they beat rivals Houston next week.
Obviously it is a big if as Dallas has to take care of business next week against the Houston Dynamo.
Looking even further ahead, it appears that Dallas may be paired with the side of the bracket that contains Western Conference rivals Real Salt Lake and Chivas USA. Should neither one of those clubs advance we could see USL-Pro side Charleston Battery or NASL side Carolina RailHawks.
A whole lotta 'ifs' left though before we can count on those games here.
