FC Dallas will take on a familiar opponent in their third and final group match of the Disney Pro Soccer Classic this evening. Dallas faced off against Toronto four times last season between the MLS regular season and the CCL group stage - twice in Frisco and twice at BMO Field.
FC Dallas won each of the first three matches by a score of 1-0, but FCD fans will remember the fourth meeting all too well. Toronto came down to Texas and handed Dallas a 3-0 loss that put TFC through to the quarterfinal stage of the 2011-12 CCL and eliminated FCD from the tournament.
Tonight will be the first meeting since that match, and once again, advancement is at stake. The winner of tonight's match advances to the final to face the Vancouver Whitecaps on Saturday night. In the event of a draw, FCD would still advance to the tournament championship on goal differential.
The match kicks off at 5 p.m. CT and will be streamed on MLSsoccer.com's live Channel 2. Or, you could make your way down to Trinity Hall at Mockingbird Station where they'll be having a watching party in conjunction with the release of the 2012 FC Dallas kit. It'll be your first chance to buy the new kit, and what better way to break it in than cheering FCD on to the Disney Pro Soccer Classic final for the second straight year?
