SOCIAL | Dallas Buzzin' Over Win Against Árabe Unido

FRISCO -  FC Dallas made quite an entrance into the 2017 season. After spending 10 days in Argentina for preseason, it seems the team's intensive training schedule paid off.  FC Dallas dominated over Panama's Arabe Unido 4-0 in the first leg of the Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinals. To top it all off, it was the largest margin by which an MLS club has ever won in the CCL knockout phase.

While fans were happy to see the team back on the pitch, FC Dallas newcomer Cristian Colman's goal in the 30' caused a frenzy at Toyota Stadium and on social media. 

Homegrown Kellyn Acosta gave FC Dallas a 2-0 lead in the 55' with an assist from Roland Lamah. Acosta later scored his second goal of the match in the 86', giving the team a lofty 3-0 lead.

While the fans were confident the team had already won the match at that point, Michael Barrios found the net just before the final whistle to make the final score 4-0.

FC Dallas will travel to Panama for the next leg of the CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal match, and play on Wednesday, March 1st. Fans can watch the game on CONCACAF's Facebook page where they will be streaming it live beginning at 7pm CT.
