FC Dallas vs Sporting Kansas City: Match Predictions

FC Dallas hits the road, can they get the points?

MLS: FC Dallas at Sporting Kansas City Peter G. Aiken

FC Dallas finally scored a goal (or three) over the weekend and notched their first win since the league restart. Dallas got off to a fast start, developing a quick 2-0 lead early in the first half before riding out two shots off the woodwork before grinding out a very close win which the scoreline didn’t reflect how tense the game was. Dallas hits the road for the second time in 2020, to a historically difficult place for Dallas to play. But without the crowd, perhaps Dallas can find their third ever win at Sporting Kansas City tonight?

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.

This team has been so inconsistent and we’re all struggling in the standings right now.

What do you think? Can Dallas ride the wave of a three point party to more points tonight? Was the win more of a fluke and what we saw against Nashville and Houston the real FCD?
