It all comes down to this 90 minute game (or 120 if FC Dallas can pull the impossible out). FC Dallas looks to survive the Western Conference semifinals and overcome a 3-0 hole against the Seattle Sounders tonight.

QUESTIONABLE: Kellyn Acosta (hip)
After being shutout. Following a shutout loss on the road, FC Dallas has a 5‐0‐0 record, 12GF, 3GA when returning to Toyota Stadium in 2016.
Last 4-0 win. Needing four goals (and a shutout) to get past Seattle tonight. FCD will have to lean on their July 4th performance from this season when they dominated Orlando in a 4-0 win.
Hope. FC Dallas won both games at home against Seattle, scoring four goals in those two games while only giving up one. FCD scored two goals in ten minutes vs. Seattle on Oct. 16. They also scored two goals in five minutes at LA in Open Cup Semifinal.

Projected lineups: We expect FC Dallas go back to the 4-2-3-1 with Mauro Rosales getting a start tonight in the Mauro Diaz role. Could we also see Carlos Ruiz get a few extended minutes? We think so.
