FC Dallas made things incredibly difficult for themselves with a 1-1 draw Sunday night against Chivas USA. The Whitecaps are four points ahead of FCD in the standings for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference with two matches left for both teams. Bottom line: a Vancouver win in either of its final two games earns them the final playoff spot in the West. Best case scenario for FCD would have Vancouver losing its final two matches - thus FCD needing only a draw and a win to get in on a tiebreaker. Still a lot to play for, but FC Dallas has little control of its playoff fate.
Here's where things stand after Sunday night:
