Our football match prediction:
Chicago Fire will be looking to extend their winning run in MLS to four games when they welcome Dallas at their Toyota Park. David Accam scored the winner in a 1-0 triumph over DC United and the Ghanaian winger will be the man to watch in the home team in Friday’s football match. Chicago are high on confidence ahead of the visit of Dallas and, no doubt, coach Veljko Paunovic, who won the U20 FIFA World Cup with Serbia, is doing a great job with the Toyota Park outfit. Dallas, on the other hand, suffered their first defeats of the season at the weekend, with the team losing to San Jose Earthquakes in front of home fans. In previous three meetings between the two teams in Chicago the hosts emerged triumphant and given Fire’s current form we predict that the history is going to repeat itself.
Highlighted Player (Schweinsteiger):
After making a name for himself at Bayern Munich, Bastian Schweinsteiger moved to Manchester United in 2015 for a fee of €9 million. The German midfielder won eight Bundesliga titles with Bayern Munich, but he has yet to win the Premier League trophy with Manchester United. However, winning the 2014 World Cup trophy with Germany is considered Bastian’s biggest success and it is well known that he won the bronze medal with die Manschaft at the 2006 and the 2010 World Cup finals. Schweinsteiger was born on 1 August, 1984 and he scored 45 goals in 342 appearances for Bayern Munich. The German international, though, failed to impress in the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign with Manchester United as he scored no more than one goal in 18 appearances for the Old Trafford outfit. Bastian Schweinsteiger netted once for Germany at the Euro 2016 finals and later in July he married Serbian tennis player Ana Ivanovic.
Highlighted Team (FC Dallas):
Despite making it to the 2010 MLS Cup final, Dallas eventually failed to win the domestic trophy. The Toros (Bulls) were beaten by Colorado in the final played at BMO Field in Toronto and you should bear in mind that the Rapids scored the winner in the extra time. That was the first and only time Dallas participated in the MLS Cup final, but in 2016 the club won the Supporters’ Shield and the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup. The Toros play their home games at Toyota Stadium, the venue that was opened in August, 2005. The stadium’s original name was Pizza Hut Park, but in September 2013 it was renamed as Toyota Stadium after Pizza Hut Park left as a main sponsor. FC Dallas wear red shits with white stripes when playing at home, while their secondary colours are white and blue. Former Ajax and River Plate ace Mauro Rosales, who joined the Toyota Stadium outfit in 2016, is regarded as one of the club most significant stars.
