FC Dallas vs Minnesota United: Match Predictions

Get those three points!

MLS: FC Dallas at Minnesota United FC Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

FC Dallas will look to put behind the drama that is “The Inventor of Soccer”, and focus on getting all the points tonight against the visiting Minnesota United. The Loons are... well, not very good at the soccer right now. Minnesota are dead last in points away from home (4) and are conceding nearly 3 goals on the road too.

This should be a win for Dallas, but we said the same thing against San Jose a few weeks ago and we all remember what kind of effort this squad put up. And because #ThisIsMLS, would Dallas dropping points be a shock to anyone?

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

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 turn things around or is this another trap game that FCD fails to show up for?
