Our football match prediction:
Buoyed by a 2-1 win over Montreal Impact Colorado Rapids head into Sunday’s football match against Dallas. Colorado sit in tenth place in the Western Conference ahead of the visit of Dallas and they have slim chances of booking their place in the play-offs. The Dick’s Sporting Goods Park outfit recorded only one win in previous five home games in the Major League Soccer and we are not tempted to put our money on the hosts. Dallas, on the other hand, did well to keep a clean sheet in each of their previous two league games and they are likely to rely on their defence in Sunday’s clash against Colorado. A win over the Rapids would see the Toros climb to the play-offs berth and, taking everything into account, there is a certain value in betting on the visitors, who defeated Colorado at their Toyota Stadium last month.
Highlighted Player (Tim Howard):
Tim Howard is considered one of the best goalkeepers in the history of USA national football team. Howard is well known for his spell with English giants Manchester United. The experienced shoot-stopper played for the Red Devils from 2003 to 2007 and he spent the 2006/2007 season on loan at Everton. At the end of the season he signed a permanent deal with the Goodison Park outfit and it has to be noted that he made no less than 354 league appearances for the Toffees. During the 2011/2012 Premier League campaign he scored his first and only goal for Everton as he found the net in a 2-1 loss to Bolton Wanderers. Thanks to the goal against Bolton he became the fourth goalkeeper to score a Premier League game. In 2016 he decided to return to USA, signing a three-and-a-half-year deal with Colorado Rapids. Howard conceded 20 goals in 19 appearances for the Rapids in the 2016 MLS season and he managed to keep eight clean sheets. It is well known that the USA goalkeeper won the 2007 CONCACAF Gold Cup with the Yanks.
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.
