Three memorable matches between FC Dallas and New York Red Bulls

FC Dallas has struggled in recent years against the Red Bulls

Tomorrow night two MLS originals will hit the field at Red Bull arena as New York Red Bulls host FC Dallas for their lone meeting of the season.

In 42 all-time meetings, the Red Bulls have the series advantage. FC Dallas also hasn't won in New York since the Red Bulls were playing at the old Giants Stadium in East Rutherford.

Why pull out a blowout? Simple, this was a day that Clint Mathis scored five goals in a single game, a record that still stands in MLS to this day.

Even though this one may be tough to watch for some diehards, I still enjoy watching some old clips to see some of those wild jersey designs from the early days of the league. Not to mention, MetroStars and the Burn! Those names!

The last trip to Red Bull Arena didn't go well for FC Dallas towards the end of the Schellas Hyndman era. Kind of crazy to look back on this one and see some early Fabian Castillo, a super young Kellyn Acosta at right back and the center back tandem of Matt Hedges and George John.

Still, on the night New York would win on an own-goal from Erick (remember that guy?).

Last year's lone meeting was a pretty entertaining game between the two teams that would end the season tied atop the league standings with 60 points.

FC Dallas nearly grabbed a late goal in this one (which could have eventually lead to them winning the Supporters' Shield if you want to dwell in that thought for a few minutes). Felipe ended up clearing a shot off the line to preserve the 0-0 score for the Red Bulls.
