Our prediction for this MLS match:
Chicago Fire and Houston Dynamo face each other at Toyota Park in what is expected to be one of the most entertaining games of Sunday’s program. Chicago have been having their ups and downs at the start of the season and, as a result, they sit in seventh place in the Eastern Conference ahead of the visit of Houston Dynamo. The Fire, though, produce much better performances at home than on the travels, which is certainly giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of Sunday’s football match. Houston, on the other hand, have been scoring goals for fun at the start of the season and we predict they are going to stick to their attacking style of play against Chicago Fire. The Dynamo were on the verge of beating Vancouver Whitecaps at the weekend, but the Canadian outfit eventually scored equalizer in the dying seconds of the match. Anyhow, seeing that Houston are not regarded as good travelers, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts.
Highlighted Player (Bastian 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 FIFA 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 (Houston Dynamo):
Houston Dynamo is an American professional soccer club owned by Jake Silverstein, Gabriel Brener, Ben Guull and Oscar De La Hoya, who is considered one of the greatest boxers of all time.
BBVA Compass Stadium is Dynamo’s home ground and the capacity of the venue is 22.039. Houston Dynamo won back-to-back MLS Cup trophies (2006, 2007), with the team beating New England Revolution in each of the two title games. It has to be noted that Houston finished the 2011 and the 2012 seasons as runners-up.
In 2008 the Dynamo made it to the North American SuperLiga final, but this time out their old rivals New England Revolution proved to be a big catch for the BBVA Compass Stadium outfit. FC Dallas are regarded as the club’s main rivals and the two teams face each other in the Texas derby. Houston have developed a rivalry with Sporting Kansas City as well. The colors of the club are orange, black and white.
