FC Dallas vs Sporting Kansas City: Match Predictions

Can FC Dallas bounce back after a disappointing draw?

MLS: FC Dallas at Sporting KC Peter G. Aiken-USA TODAY Sports

Despite giving up a late equalizer last weekend in San Jose, FC Dallas remains one of two teams yet to have suffered a loss in this 2017 campaign. And as it would be written, the other team that’s also unbeaten so far is the visiting Sporting Kansas City.

Here’s a quick recap in the standings for the staff. Despite most of us selecting the correct 1-1 draw, many of us would’ve gladly forfeited those points for a different outcome.

Nathan Hill is continuing his hot streak and is still in the lead. He was also recently accepted into the Doctor of Ministry program at Phillips Theological Seminary. So we’re pretty sure God is on his side, and therefore by the power of transitive properties, God is also on FCD’s side. That’s how that works right?

The staff are fairly optimistic about this encounter. Cody Gamond is expecting a display of goals everywhere, while our managing editor, Drew Epperley is far more logical and practical with his prediction.


Name Result for FCD FCD Score Opposition Score Commentary
Name Result for FCD FCD Score Opposition Score Commentary
Etan Cohn Win 2 1
El Chico Carmona Win 2 1 FCD will get the winning goal right before the game can go to PKs
Mohammad Bushnaq Draw 1 1 FC Dallas pay the penalty and the defending champs bow out of the USOC.
Jared Tilley Win 2 1
Scott Hiney Win 1 1 Maxi sends us to PKs, Hollingshead's take is what seals the victory.
Cody Gamond Win 2 1 Come from behind in extra time after a 1-1 end to the game. Maxi and Ulloa the scorers.
Jeff Loftin Loss 1 1 Unfortunately I think we lose in penalties.
Ryan Scanlon Loss 0 2 I think Kansas City will definitely be wanting this game more as FC Dallas comes out sloppy and really missing Matt Hedges. Sporting is also undefeated in their last 8 games. They'll keep that going here as Rubio and Blessing grab the goals and win for SKC.
Jack Hazzard Win 2 1 KC will be both chippy and arrogant but Urutti will fix that real quick.
Ben Lyon Win 2 1 3 more wins to consecutive silverware. It'll be 2 after tonight.
Drew Epperley Loss 1 1 I think the game will end level but SKC will go on in PKs.

What do you guys think? Will FCD deliver Sporting’s first loss of the season?
