FC Dallas vs Pachuca: Match Predictions

Will we see FCD advance to another finals tonight?

MLS: Pachuca at FC Dallas Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

FC Dallas puts their CONCACAF Champions League fate on the line tonight as they enter the second leg match of the CCL Semi-Finals against Pachuca. FCD currently holds a 2-1 lead and will look to join Real Salt Lake and the Montreal Impact as the only MLS teams to have made it to the CCL Finals.

The staff are fairly optimistic that they can hold and advance. Though Mohammad and myself are less optimistic. We’ll dive into that shortly after the standings update:

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 think? Did the week in Mexico help enough to advance Dallas to the Finals? Or are we suffering a little heart break tonight?
