On this CCL journey so far, Dallas has played in the national stadiums of El Salvador and Toronto as well as a stadium used in the World Cup. Now they head to Panama where they'll take on Tauro FC at the Estadio Rommel Fernandez, the national stadium of Panama. 

The Rommel Fernandez is named after arguably the best Panamanian player of the past couple decades. Fernandez was killed in a car accident at just 27 years old. It's a strange stadium in the fact that there's no club team that plays there, but for games like this one it hosts a number of teams.

The stadium was renovated in 2009 and hosted the Central American Cup earlier this season so Marvin Chavez who played with Honduras will be familiar with this pitch.

Tauro was beaten 2-1 by Toronto FC and drew 0-0 with Pumas at home earlier in the group stage.
