FC Dallas vs New York City FC: Match Predictions

Staff predict this evening’s game and we’re... mixed about it

MLS: New York City FC at FC Dallas Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

FC Dallas hit the road again as the league’s last remaining unbeaten team. FCD visit NYCFC, who started the season just as strong as Dallas (in terms of being unbeaten) but things seem to be a bit jittery when Arsene Wenger announced he’s leaving Arsenal and Patrick Veira’s name has been popping up as a possible replacement.

Oscar Pareja has trotted out the 4-4-2 in consecutive games with great success. It’ll be interesting to see if he continue with that or opts to revert back to a more favorable 4-2-3-1 on a smaller field.

The staff are continuing to make picks this season and we’re going with a very simple points system:

Here are our staff predictions against NYCFC:


Name Result for FCD FCD Score Opposition Score Commentary
Name Result for FCD FCD Score Opposition Score Commentary
Ben Lyon Win 2 1 The smug comments from Sounders fans this week...
Jack Rous Win 2 0 How do they do it? Ricardo Pepi
Jason Poon Loss 0 2 It's been fun but I'm not seeing a way out of Seattle with a win.
Jeff Loftin Loss 1 2 Close loss after controversial play at the other end which mysteriously doesn't get VAR treatment.
Mohammad Bushnaq Loss 1 2 Valiant effort but Dallas falls short in the Pacific NW for their revenge bid.
Nathan Hill Draw 2 2 FC Dallas advance on PKs and claim the Cascadia Cup. Goals from Jara and Pepi.
Ryan Scanlon Loss 1 3 Seattle’s quality and combination play will be too much for FC Dallas which will not let us get away with what we pulled off against Portland. Michael Barrios gives us a glimmer of hope with a goal before Jordan Morris and Nick Lodeiro put this out of reach.

What do you guys think? Can Dallas keep their unbeaten run going? Or is this when Dallas finally sees their first L of the season?
