FC Dallas vs Minnesota United: Match Predictions

Decision Day with lots to play for

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

FC Dallas is now riding their second three game winning streak of 2020 - a feat they hadn’t done since that historic 2016 season where the club won the Open Cup and Supporter’s Shield. Dallas will travel today on Decision Day with a lot of playoff scenarios on the line. Pending on the results, Dallas could end as low at 7th place or as high as 2nd. Either way, there’s plenty of action to follow later today.

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 MNU:


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. Pending on tonight’s result and how far Dallas advances in the playoffs, Nathan could have this locked up and we can reasonably project Nathan as the winner.
