Big big match on the road tonight at Rio Tinto, a place FC Dallas seemingly struggles to play in all too often. Our writers seem to be pretty optimistic about tonight (I think out of pure hope) because we know how big three points would be for the Supporters Shield race.
The race for the BigDSoccer Fortuneteller award is heating up. Here are how the standings are shaking up as of today.
As for today, as mentioned earlier, the staff seems to be fairly optimistic for a road match. Here are our predictions. What do you think happens tonight?
|Ben Lyon||Win||2||1||Dallas gets the lead and holds on despite a late flurry from RSL. Goals for Diaz and Urruti.|
|Cody Gamond||Win||1||0||Really tight game, but late one Urruti finds a spectacular winner.|
|Drew Epperley||Draw||1||1||Another snoozer between these two clubs.|
|Jack Hazzard||Draw||1||1||Not looking forward to this match. Looks to be a snoozer. Urruti will continue to score.|
|Jared Tilley||Win||1||0||Dallas get out to a hot start and scores through Urruti. They are able to hold on for a massive 3 points.|
|Jason Poon||Win||1||0||Own goal bags the winner.|
|Mohammad Bushnaq||Win||2||1||Carlos Gruezo is way overdue for a goal and since I am predicting him to get one, I will also say that El Pescadito nabs the winner for his first goal of the season.|
|Nathan Hill||Win||2||1||Mauro plays another MVP type game, feeding Urruti and Barrios and withstanding a fierce RSL rally.|
|Phil Luetchford||Draw||1||1||Both Nick Rimando and Chris Seitz make huge saves as the game is tight and tense throughout. Matt Hedges scores as each team converts a set piece.|
|Ryan Scalon||Draw||2||2||FCD gets the point it wanted, but its' inability to close out games on the road becomes a little more worrisome. Hollingshead and Barrios get the goals.|
|Scott Hiney||Win||2||1||How they played against NYCFC only further makes me believe this team can consistently create chances from start to finish. Maxi and Mauro Rosales find the net in the second half to take all three points.|
