How to watch Pachuca vs FC Dallas in 2016-17 CONCACAF Champions League semifinal, second leg: start time, TV schedule, and live stream, Pachuca vs. FC Dallas | CONCACAF Champions League Semifinals, 2nd Leg.


If there is going to be a team from MLS in this year’s CCL final, FC Dallas is the favorite to be that team. Carrying a narrow lead to Mexico for the second leg, FCD’s task is primarily not to lose: a tie sees the reigning MLS Supporters’ Shield and US Open Cup champion (but qualified for this tournament as the 2015 Western Conference winner) through to the final.

FCD are carrying a slim advantage thanks to their 2-1 win at Toyota Stadium in last month’s first leg of this home-and-away, aggregate-goals series. So a draw or victory this week will see them through to the CCL final, as would a one-goal loss in which FCD score two or more goals. But with Pachuca having nabbed an away goal in Leg 1, a 1-0 win for the home side or any Tuzos win by more than a one-goal margin will sink Dallas.

Easier said than done against what should be a well-motivated Pachuca side that knows a goal at home swiftly tilts the semifinal its way. In the first leg, Los Tuzos scored first. A repeat of that achievement would suit them very well.
