Chivas USA VS. FC DALLAS When: 2. Where: Home Depot Center. On the air: TV: UniMas. Records: Chivas USA 0-1, FC Dallas 1-0. Record vs. FC Dallas (2012): 0-0-3. Update: Chivas USA started the new season the same way it ended the last one - with a game without a win. The team's 3-0 loss to Columbus extended Chivas' franchise-record winless streak to 15 games. Not that anyone noticed since attendance was announced at 7,121, though observers said the "crowd" was far smaller.

Two UCLA players were among the Top 20 picks in Major League Soccer's two-round SuperDraft on Thursday: Bruin midfielder Fernando Monge is going to the Montreal Impact with the second-to-last pick of the first round, while midfielder Ryan Hollingshead went to FC Dallas with the first pick of the second round. Cal State Bakersfield defender Kory Kindle was the 25th player taken overall, going to the Colorado Rapids. Monge, an all-conference selection from Seattle, was second on the team in minutes played this season, starting all 19 of UCLA's games, scoring five times and adding an assist.

When: 4. Where: FC Dallas Stadium, Frisco, Texas. On the air: TV: Galavision. Records: Chivas USA 7-18-8, FC Dallas 9-13-11. Record vs. FC Dallas: 0-0-2. Update: There's little more than pride on the line in this one because FC Dallas was eliminated from playoff contention last week and Chivas USA, winless since July 28, is guaranteed of finishing last in the Western Conference. Still, Chivas probably has more to play for since second-year Coach Robin Fraser is widely expected to be let go after the game.

And after Sunday's methodical 2-0 win over FC Dallas in front of a sun-drenched Home Depot Center crowd of 21,933, an argument could be made that the team is as good as ever. "I've heard that from a lot of people. Which is good to hear," said defender Todd Dunivant, who scored the second goal Sunday. "Obviously, you don't want to be living in the past.

For much of Tuesday night, Chivas USA appeared to take its quarterfinal matchup in the U.S. Open Cup for what it was — a glorified exhibition game. Goalkeeper Dan Kennedy sat. Other key players joined him for long stretches. It was Chivas' fourth game in 10 days. Fatigue was bound to play a role. And early, it did. By halftime, Chivas had failed to capitalized on nine shots against the Charlotte Eagles of the USL Pro league — the third tier of the North American soccer pyramid.
