FC Dallas is set to open the 2010 MLS playoffs on Saturday at Pizza Hut Park against the defending MLS champions Real Salt Lake.  It is a very difficult draw for FCD after a very succesful regular season and a 3rd place finish in the Western Conference. 

It will be a home and home series with RSL with the opening leg here at Pizza Hut Park Saturday 4:00.  The return leg will take place in Utah where RSL has a home winning streak of .   FC Dallas split its regular season series with Real Salt Lake, winning 2-0 at Pizza Hut Park on July 17. Dallas fell 2-0 against Real in Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah on October 16.

After the MLS record unbeaten streak that lasted a ridiculous five months, FC Dallas has lost their last two matches falling to the top two teams in the Western Conference RSL and LA Galaxy.  They'll need to rebound quickly to advance past Real Salt Lake who is practically unbeatable at home.  The best case scenario would be to grab a win in the opener in Frisco and then go to Utah and earn a draw to advance.
