Here is your game thread for today's game.
It all starts here. The 2014 season begins tonight as the Oscar Pareja era kicks off in Frisco. FC Dallas is hosting the Montreal Impact in the first game of the season.
Pareja will be hoping to get a lot out of his young attack tonight.
Montreal will be without some key players however as Marco Di Vaio, Nelson Rivas and Andres Romero are all suspended tonight. The Impact reached the postseason in just their second MLS season, but this year will be led on the touchline by Frank Klopas, who last year was in charge of the Chicago Fire.
