FC Dallas vs Minnesota United: Match Predictions

Welp, I guess we’ve still got some soccer?

MLS: Minnesota United FC at FC Dallas Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

On Wednesday we had a national moment and a serious conversation on what’s been going on around the country. The players decided to strike and not play on Wednesday in protest of the the senseless violence and killings. But, after much discussion among the players, they’ve opted to play on and here we are. Dallas is at it again tonight against Minnesota United, and are now riding three straight games without a goal. Surely it’s panic time if Dallas cannot find the back of the net in this one.

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 MIN:


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.

More of us are on the board now! After correctly predicting a draw, though none of us imagined both teams going scoreless, seems like our staff have properly aligned our expectations with the reality of this club.
