FC Dallas vs Seattle Sounders: Match Predictions

New, comments

Collapse or redemption?

MLS: Seattle Sounders at FC Dallas Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

FC Dallas suffered an embarrassing loss at the hands of the worst team in the league last weekend in front of a frustrated home crowd. Dallas hits the road tonight and visits a surging Seattle Sounders team that have won their last four in a row. Can Dallas get a result and get things back to normal or is the fall down the standings the new normal now?

Here are our staff predictions against SEA:

FCD vs SEA

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? Is this one going to be bad? Or will this be one of those weird games where, like Jose says, Dallas pulls out a win when they aren’t expected to?
