A road match after the high of the USOC has our panelists split on who takes the points tonight.

Will we see these two square off in the middle of the baseball diamond tonight?

We all gave FC Dallas the kiss of death last week as Drew even went so far as predicting: "death, taxes, and winning at home." Well, this week we learned our lesson and have very split opinions on how this match shakes up in the Bronx.

No changes in the top few scorers as last week was not our best predicting week.

Here are tonight's predictions. Do you agree, disagree, or feel like that sounds about right?

Name Result FCD NYC Comments
Ben Lyon Win 3 2 Why stop? Harris, Barrios, and Urruti get the USOC winners out to a 3 goal lead, and they hang on despite a late charge from the (Senior) Citizens.
Cody Gamond Win 2 1 FC Dallas gets the most out of the old guys, beating the Yankees by a run. Rosales and Ruiz show up City's octogenarians and both make it to home base.
Drew Epperley Draw 2 2 The gas in the tank runs out late in the match for FCD.
Jack Hazzard Win 3 1 FCD throws out a determined reserve side ready to give it there all. Old man Carlos Ruiz makes an appearance late, scoring on his return.
Jared Tilley Win 3 1 FCD bunkers and hits NYCFC on the counter, over and over again. Goals by Barrios, Urruti and Tesho.
Jason Poon Win 3 0 Hedges, Gruezo and Hollingshead do the damage.
Mohammad Bushnaq Draw 2 2 FC Dallas fields a lineup Kasey Keller is not very happy with as Coy Craft nabs the first goal of his career with Tesho adding another one to spoil NYCFC's night in the Big Apple.
Nathan Hill Draw 2 2 NYCFC and FC Dallas trade goals, but a late one from Walker Zimmerman insures FC Dallas comes away with a crucial road point. The team celebrates by attending Aladdin the Musical, and in a revelation, the team realizes that they are the princess Jasmine to Oscar Pareja’s Aladdin.
Phil Luetchford Loss 0 2 NYCFC extend their 5-game home winning streak. FC Dallas is 2W-3L-2D in the last 7 road games. Plus, we're coming off the emotional high of the glorious Open Cup win. Do you think Mauro Diaz and Maxi Urruti are going to go as hard in this one? They might not even start, as Papi opts to play the kids one last time before we ramp up to playoffs. Lampard and Villa do what they do.
Ryan Scalon Loss 2 4 NYCFC takes it in a wild shootout. FC Dallas takes another blow to their supporters shield hopes with a bit of humbling from David Villa and Old Man Frank. Urruti and Acosta get the goals for FCD.
Scott Hiney Win 4 2 Let’s have some fun, huh? Tesho, Mauro, Mauro and Kellyn score as it’s a back and forth game that FCD seals late.
Taylor Hester Loss 1 2 NYC will probably win because they know that field better than anyone. It's FCD's first time playing there, just won Open Cup and CCL coming up in a few days. Might be a weaker squad sent out there and NYC is looking good.
