FC Dallas vs LA Galaxy: Match Predictions

The staff are in disagreement about how #LAvFCD will turn out

MLS: Los Angeles Galaxy at FC Dallas Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

FC Dallas hit the road again, this time taking their talents to California on a short turn around. The LA Galaxy will also have a short turn around too, but have the advantage of playing their previous game at home too. Zlatan will also be available for selection, after serving his red card suspension for slapping.

The staff are pretty divided here. On one hand, the Galaxy are a bad, bad soccer team. Also, Matt Hedges is suspended for this one, plus it’s on the road. But again, the Galaxy are a bad, bad soccer team. So, who knows how this will play out?

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 LA:


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 get another result on the road? Or will the heavy travel, tired legs, no Hedges, return of Zlatan be too much for this squad to overcome?
