Everything on the line as FCD gets set to take on Vancouver | FCDallas.com

The home-and-home set with the Whitecaps over the next week is really a good playoff preview for everyone involved. I think if you get four points out of these two games somehow, FCD really sets themselves up well for getting a top two seed in the West.

SKC back on the rise | Goal.com
