FRISCO - Coming off a 1-0 loss in Leg One of their Round of 16 meeting with Tauro FC, here's what FC Dallas needs at home in Leg Two to advance to the 2018 Quarterfinals.
To Advance Outright
If FC Dallas wins by at least two goals at home (i.e. 2-0, 3-1, etc.), they will advance on aggregate score regardless of the away goals tiebreaker. A single-goal victory would either force extra time or would see Tauro FC advance via the scenarios below.
To Force PKs
If FC Dallas earns a 1-0 win in Leg Two, the series would be tied 1-1 on aggregate score with neither team owning the away goal tiebreaker. In this case, the series would be decided on penalties.
If Tauro FC wins or earns a draw in Leg Two, they would advance past Dallas into the Quarterfinals. If FC Dallas wins a one-goal game (i.e. 2-1, 3-2, etc.) in Leg Two, the series would be tied on aggregate and Tauro would advance by owning the away goal tiebreaker since FCD did not score during Leg One in Panama.
