FC Dallas advances to US Open Cup semifinals with RSL win

FC Dallas flipped the script from Saturday night's road loss to Real Salt Lake at Rio Tinto as they ran out 2-0 winners at Pizza Hut Park.  The win moves FC Dallas within reach of the coveted US Open Cup title as they advance to the semifinals of the competition to face either Seattle or the LA Galaxy.

Both sides made changes to the lineup as Dallas introduced Bruno Guarda, Ricardo Villar and Eric Avila to the starting lineup.  RSL left goalkeeper Nick Rimando out due to injury. After the loss on the weekend FCD had nothing but revenge on their minds Tuesday night and got off to a quick start taking the lead after only 18 minutes.

After Avila drew a foul 25 yards away from Kyle Reynish’s goal, both Villar and Benitez stood over the ball, but it was the Colombian that ripped a curling left-footed shot past an outstretched Reynish for a 1-0 lead.  The rest of the first half featured chippy play – the teams combined for four yellow cards, two to each side – and several deep runs from Espíndola into the FCD defensive third, all to no avail.

FC Dallas made one substitution at the restart, sending Jackson forward in place of Marvin Chávez, and Hyndman’s change paid dividends nine minutes into the second-half restart. Midfielder Eric Alexander played a through ball to Jackson that RSL defender Jámison Olave tried to play offside, but the Brazilian timed it perfectly and gently looped his shot over Reynish for FCD’s second goal. Real Salt Lake played more aggressively down the stretch and Collen Warner nearly put them on the board in the 74th, but his screamer from distance hit the crossbar and bounced away from danger.

In the semifinals, FC Dallas will host the LA Galaxy if they advance otherwise they'll travel to face Seattle on the road.
