Sounders vs FC Dallas, full-time: Seattle advances to Western Conference final



FINAL: The Sounders advance to their 4th Western Conference final in 5 years after beating FC Dallas 1-0. It was probably closer than necessary, but we know Seattle can win tough games. All eyes on Thursday night to see who the Sounders are playing.

Pollsters 1, FC Dallas 0: Seattle opens the scoring with a header from Shane O’Neill!

HALF TIME: Maybe the score is a bit misleading considering how fun this game is. Seattle had a good chunk of the ball and took nine shots in the first half. The Sounders are well positioned to advance in the second half.


The Seattle Sounders are once again at the end of the MLS playoffs as they take on a familiar foe at FC Dallas tonight. The Sounders come off a convincing 3-1 win over LAFC in the first round of the playoffs. FC Dallas won a surprise victory over the Portland Timbers, advancing on penalties.

If history has taught us anything, it’s that this showdown could be a barn burner. These two teams met in the first round of the 2019 playoffs and that game ended 4-3 in added time. It’s also the fifth time they’ve met in the playoffs since 2014, with no more than two goals separating the two teams in one of those meetings.
