FC Dallas vs Vancouver Whitecaps: Match Predictions

The staff are pretty split on this one.

Name Result FCD VAN Comments
Becky Chabot Win 2 1 Dallas but barely. Last minute goal and we spend most of the match not looking great and floundering.
Ben Lyon Win 2 1 I know, a homer pick, but hear me out. Over Mauro Diaz's 37 games in MLS, FC Dallas averages 1.86 points per game. Will he play Wednesday? I'm not sure, but the team does have some practice playing without him at least. Vancouver is fresh off a road draw with San Jose that was a wrestling match masquerading as a soccer game and won't be peak for this one. Frankly, we're in better shape and a better team, so here's the result we need to make the last 3 weeks interesting.

Drew Epperley Draw 1 1 Both teams shuffle players in and out of the lineup with the short turnaround. Vancouver gets a crap late goal that pisses Oscar Pareja off in an epic fashion.
Jason Poon Win 2 0 Dallas pulls off a gutsy performance led by a Matt Hedges headed goal late in the first half, then followed by a wonder goal from Michael Barrios in the dying seconds to seal it.

Mohammad Bushnaq Loss 1 2 I hate to sound doomy and gloomy, but I need to differentiate myself from the other predictions and this is a road game. It'll be close, but FC Dallas won't be able to pull back from a 2-0 deficit falling just short in their comeback efforts.
Nathan Hill Win 2 1 FCD gets a huge 3 points by starting out strong which is the key. Two early goals get answered by Vancouver but a stout defensive performance preserves a massive result. Portland starts sending scouts to scope out Oscar Pareja since Caleb Porter is floundering.
Ryan Scalon Loss 2 3 FC Dallas loses a close one giving up a late winner that's absolutely heartbreaking. But more importantly we get out of the injury free. Please don't get injured anyone...
Scott Hiney Draw 2 2 2-2. It’s tough but I think that this team knows what this game means and I think we see Mauro really rise to the occasion and lead an offensive attack that does enough to get a point.
Taylor Hester Draw 1 1 Vancouver takes the lead early but a late goal from Blas Perez off the bench gets FCD a point on the road.
