Whitecaps vs FC Dallas, 2013 MLS Round 2.

After last weekend’s terrible performance against the very same FC Dallas side, the Whitecaps found themselves with another poor result on the road. Following that match, the Caps made their way up to Edmonton to take part in their first match of the 2013 Amway Canadian Championship. In a very unexpected manner, Vancouver narrowly squeaked out a win to take back to BC Place for the second leg of the semi-final.

The last time these two sides met, FC Dallas dominated the play as they continued their great record at home so far this season with a 2-0 victory over the Caps.

Here are the highlights from that match:

Despite Dallas being the top team in the league at the present moment, much like the Caps, they do not hold the greatest record on the road. The Texan side are 1-1-1 away from home, so the Whitecaps will hope to stay undefeated at BC Place and take advantage of this opportunity to turn their fortunes around.
