Looking back at the last meeting between FC Dallas & Chivas USA

By Daniel Robertson

Saturday's match against Chivas USA is the second opponent this season that FC Dallas will be seeing for the second time in 2014 after facing Seattle for the second time last week.

Last time out, FC Dallas and Chivas USA played to a physical, rough-and-tumble, 3-1 win for FC Dallas. After a relatively dull first half, the match sprang to life in the second half as Mauro Diaz, Hendry Thomas and Fabian Castillo combined to produce the first goal of the match in the 71st minute.

Just seven minutes later, a trademark pass from Diaz sprang Je-Vaughn Watson free on goal and the Jamaican made no mistake rounding Dan Kennedy and scoring to put Dallas up 2-0. Things got interesting just a few minutes later as Erick "Cubo" Torres pulled Chivas USA within a goal at 2-1, but Michel's late free kick goal sealed all three points for FC Dallas who are 6-2-6 all-time against Chivas USA at home.

Saturday's final visit from Chivas USA kicks off at 7:30PM and tickets can be purchased here(TICKETS - FC Dallas vs Chivas USA - Saturday, May 17, 7:30PM ).
