Not looking forward to staying up late for this one

MLS: Portland Timbers at FC Dallas Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

FC Dallas makes their trip up to Portland tonight and with a depleted backline and some international call ups, the staff are fairly skeptical about what’s about to transpire tonight.

Before we jump in, here are the updated standings.

The combination of playing in Portland, no Hedges or Zimmerman... the staff are readying themselves for a long night ahead of us.

FCD v SKC

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? Can Dallas escape with a point or three? Are we overly pessimistic?
