FC Dallas to face Seattle Sounders in Western Conference Semifinals

The 2020 revenge tour takes us back to Seattle.

MLS: MLS Cup Playoffs-Round One-FC Dallas at Seattle Sounders FC Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

The conference semifinals are set in the 2020 MLS Cup Playoffs and once again FC Dallas will meet a familiar face in the next round as they’ll take on the Seattle Sounders on December 1 at 8:30 pm CT.

The defending champion Sounders advanced in the playoffs after topping No. 7 seed LAFC 3-1 Tuesday night. Dallas advanced on Sunday night thanks to the heroics of Ricardo Pepi in stoppage-time and then keeper Jimmy Maurer in the penalty shootout to beat the Portland Timbers.

Next Tuesday’s game will air on FS1 and Fox Deportes.

This is a rematch of last year’s wild 4-3 playoff game, that saw Seattle advance after a 120-plus minute battle.

Luchi Gonzalez and company hope that their luck will continue on the road for another week as they look to advance back to a MLS Cup for the first time since 2010.

What do you all make of playing Seattle again in the playoffs? Disappointed that LAFC wasn’t able to help give FCD a home playoff game?
