This past Sunday, Sounders played their first of two games against FC Dallas in the second round of the playoffs. The game was in Seattle, so it was important that Sounders could get a good result. Dallas came in with a game plan of playing defensively and keeping the Sounders to zero goals, so they could have the advantage when they play in Dallas next week. However, from the 45th minute to the 55th minute, the Sounders scored three goals. The score ended at 3-0, which gives Sounders a huge advantage going into the second leg. Dallas looked nothing like the dominant force that they were in the regular season, but Sounders need to keep focused, because Dallas does have the potential to turn it around.
In the best game this weekend, the two top Italian league teams faced off. Juventus got the best of Napoli with the final result being 2-1. Gonzalo Higuain scored the game winner for Juventus against his former club. The win was important as Juventus now created some separation between them and Napoli.
This weekend there are some fantastic matches. The Sounders will play Dallas on Sunday as the Sounders look to secure their place in the next round of playoffs. The North London Derby is also on Sunday where rivals Arsenal and Tottenham will face off in an always exciting match up. Lastly, Chelsea plays Everton on Saturday in a very important game for Everton to try to make some ground on the top teams.
