Match Predictions: FC Dallas vs LAFC
Los Angeles FC roll into town. This is a big game for FC Dallas. If only we could field our best XI... Here is what we predict.
FC Dallas is banged up.
Los Angeles FC is tired and catching up with a run of games packed together.
The match tonight could go a lot of different ways. If FC Dallas can claw a few set pieces together or get Velasco or Obrian that chance we need, there is a real possibility of wearing LA down and getting a vital win at home. But LAFC might try to run out get a goal early, bring in fresh legs, and wear down a thin FC Dallas team. I don’t know.
The good news, as I mentioned in our latest pod, there will be a couple of fresh players back in the mix for FC Dallas. Will that be enough?
Here is what we predict:
Tommy LeBeouf: Tonight I got LAFC winning. FCD just seems to run on roster “fumes” of kids, backups, and not one bonafide star (with Ferriera at GC). LAFC 3 FCD 0
Jose Carmona: 1-1. I am too optimistic for my own good.
Ismael Belkoura: 2-1 Dallas.
I’ll go with a 1-1 draw, but I hope it is the kind of draw where a youngster scores and the team can take some positives from the match.
What do you predict?
