MLS: FC Dallas at Orlando City SC Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

We had a relaxing weekend for a change with no Orlando City match to cause us stress, but that’s about to change. The Lions are heading into Big D to take on FC Dallas. You’ll get our key match-ups and score predictions, plus our conversation with Ben Lyon of SB Nation’s Dallas blog, Big D Soccer.

We discuss the recent Orlando Pride roster announcement, and talk about which players the team should try hardest to re-sign this off-season, and the important pieces that the club is bringing back by exercising their contract options.

A super-sized mailbag featured mostly soccer questions but there were a couple that went in other directions. We also discussed the USWNT’s upcoming Concacaf Championship run as the Yanks try to qualify for the 2019 World Cup.

Here’s how show No. 144 went:

0:12 - The Lions haven’t scored a goal in three games and have never scored a goal against FC Dallas. Can you guess what we predicted would happen?

24:54 - Ben Lyon jumps on with us to give us the Dallas perspective and once again an opposing team’s blogger talks about Orlando City’s talent.

49:30 - Lots of mail, the USWNT, and the USMNT fills up our final segment. Dave will be seeing Venom before I will, no doubt.
