FC Dallas vs Houston Dynamo: Match Predictions

For glory

MLS: FC Dallas at Houston Dynamo Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

FC Dallas finally mounted their first comeback win of 2020 and got a huge three point boost against Miami. This afternoon Dallas can secure their playoff spot with a draw or a win, but also importantly, secure state bragging rights and keep El Capitan in Frisco for another year. Can Dallas get ‘er done?

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.

Nathan has now put up a commanding lead on all of us. All hail the Reverend!
