FC Dallas vs LA Galaxy: Match Predictions

It all comes down to this

MLS: FC Dallas at LA Galaxy Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

There’s something cruel yet intrinsically hopeful that after such a collapse, FC Dallas still has a chance at the post-season. A win this afternoon, followed by some help elsewhere, could still see Dallas keep their season alive. In an odd twist of fate, where this feature last year meant Dallas would capture the elusive double by lifting the Supporter’s Shield in Carson, CA, this time, it’s a chance of redemption or the final blow to a lost season.

Predictions

Maybe it’s because we’re all sentimental, or perhaps it’s a home game, or maybe it’s because the worst team in the league, but the staff are exuding an odd healthy combination of apathy and optimism for this one.

No movement in the standings. But with Phil, Mohammad and Nathan all making the same picks (we do these blind), it ensures that either Phil will take top honors this season or he’ll share the top spot with Drew.

What do you guys think? Can Dallas salvage their season? Or is this it and we should just get ourselves ready for 2018?
