FC Dallas vs Houston Dynamo: Match Predictions

Winner takes all in the final #TexasDerby of 2017

MLS: FC Dallas at Houston Dynamo Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

FC Dallas are now win-less in four, having only found the back of the net once during that span, Mauro Diaz is questionable with a hamstring issue... and El Capitan is on the line for tonight’s Texas Derby.

The game will kick off at Toyota Stadium at 7:00pm. You can catch the game on Unimas.


This has been a very dry month for Dallas. The staff are generally optimistic about this, given it’s a rivalry match and it has the tendency to get the best out of some of the players. Not everyone is as hopeful, but if there ever was a game to snap out of your funk and appease the grumbling fan base, this would be it.

How about you guys? Is Dallas going to snap out of their summer swoon or is there a larger problem with this team that still needs to be addressed?
