New, comments

A win will go a long way but FCD will need help.

MLS: FC Dallas at Seattle Sounders FC Jennifer Buchanan-USA TODAY Sports

The road to the playoffs for FC Dallas comes down to one final game this Sunday against the LA Galaxy. But to get in, Oscar Pareja and company will need some serious help.

FC Dallas will clinch a berth in the Audi 2017 MLS Cup Playoffs if:

  • FC Dallas win vs. LA Galaxy on Sunday and ...
  • San Jose Earthquakes tie or lose vs. Minnesota United FC on Sunday
  • – OR –
  • FC Dallas tie vs. LA Galaxy on Sunday and ...
  • San Jose Earthquakes lose vs. Minnesota United FC on Sunday and ...

Real Salt Lake tie or lose vs. Sporting Kansas City on Sunday

Basically we’ll all need to root extra hard for Minnesota this weekend in San Jose. Currently if FC Dallas and San Jose end up with the same points, the Earthquakes will win out on the first tiebraker (most wins).

FC Dallas will kickoff their game with LA on Sunday at the same time as all other games in the league at 3pm CT.
