FC Dallas vs Nashville: Match Predictions

Tuesday Night Soccer? Sure, why not?

FC Dallas picked up a funny win last week against Sporting Kansas City. At this point any win against SKC is funny because Vermes. Now eyes shift to Nashville and potentially some redemption after the two sides met earlier during the restart and Nashville owned Dallas in those back to backs. Can Dallas get something out of this and get the monkey off their back? Dallas is still without Matt Hedges, and Santiago Mosquera. Michael Barrios is suspended due to yellow card accumulation.

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

Here are our staff predictions against NSH:


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? Can Dallas surprise us without Hedges, Barrios and Mosquera or will it just be another evening where you wished you did something else instead of watch this team?
