FC Dallas won't have much time to celebrate that come from behind, winner at the death victory against the Los Angeles Galaxy with Western Conference rivals Sporting Kansas City making a trip to Frisco tonight. Dallas is used to quick turnarounds like this, but not so much after a West Coast match that went into extra time. But despite all that, the staff do feel that Dallas will get out of this one victorious.
Here are the latest standings*:

How do you think the team performs tonight? Sound off!
|Ben Lyon||Win||2||1||3 games in 10 days isn't the end of the world for these grinders. They're in that sweet spot of youth and experience where they get a positive result here despite a less than stellar effort. Goals for Urruti and Hollingshead.|
|Cody Gamond||Win||3||0||At home and after a poor performance, Mauro Diaz takes some inspiration from Gio and bags a goal and a pair of assists. Urruti and Hollingshead are the other scorers.|
|Jack Hazzard||Win||2||0||Dallas will come out sluggish and lethargic but an early goal from Zimmerman on a setpiece will give FCD life. SKC will be their typical chippy self, allowing Dallas to dictate the game. Urutti will add a second goal in the later stages of the game.|
|Jared Tilley||Win||2||1||Goals by Urruti and Barrios. FCD starts strong and gets a 2 goal lead. They hold on late for the victory and another 3 points|
|Jason Poon||Win||2||1||Tesho gets things going and Getterson opens his FCD account.|
|Mohammad Bushnaq||Win||2||1||This is one of those games where it's kind of ugly but FC Dallas finds a way. Getterson gets his first goal and Barrios adds a second for the good guys.|
|Nathan Hill||Draw||2||2||All even after FCD runs out of gas a bit in the 2nd half. An emotional letdown of sorts. But the team preserves a point after a halftime talk when Pareja shows the team the new Rogue One trailer to get them hyped.|
|Phil Luetchford||Win||2||1||The focus on set pieces clearly paid off in LA. I think Zim gets a goal off a set piece in this one. SKC will keep it close, especially because FCD played a midweek game. The score will be 1-1 going into the 75th minute when Ryan Hollingshead, resurgent after a poor showing in LA, finishes a Michael Barrios cutback from the endline.|
|Ryan Scalon||Win||2||1||This team has given up 31 goals this season, granted two were blow outs, but I don't see them keeping a clean sheet against a talented SKC attack force. Fortunately though, I do see them scoring more than the other team.|
|Scott Hiney||Per the agreement of our loan policy with FC Dallas' front office, Scott Hiney will forfeit his predictions until the loan comes to an end.|
