FC Dallas vs Sporting Kansas City: Match Predictions

New, comments

We’ve got some soccer (we think)?

MLS: FC Dallas at Sporting Kansas City Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

FC Dallas was supposed to play last weekend but the game got suspended/canceled/postponed (???) due to several Minnesota United players testing positive for COVID. So the sting of losing to Houston while up a man for 45 minutes still lingers. (Yes, we’re still about that.) The extra time off could be beneficial for Dallas as it allowed several players to get back into training and potentially be available. Either way, Dallas hosts Sporting Kansas City tonight and will need to get some points from this one as four of the remaining six games (after this) will be on the road.

The staff are continuing to make picks this season and we’re going with a simple points system for 2020:

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.

Nathan still holds the lead among us.

What do you think? Is it time for Dallas to swing out of their funk or are they going to stink it up again?
