Our football match prediction:
Out-of-sorts DC United welcome Toronto at their Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium. The capital club are on a six-game losing run in MLS and, no doubt, they are low on confidence ahead of Sunday’s football match against star-studded Toronto. DC United experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-0 loss to Minnesota United in their last league fixture and seeing that the team conceded no less than 15 goals in last four games, away win appears on the horizon. Toronto coach Greg Vanney can count on his star players for the DC United game, taking everything into account, we predict that the visitors, who sit in top position in the Eastern Conference, will pick up all three points from the match. In their last meeting in MLS Toronto recorded a routine 2-0 win over DC United. Sebastian Giovinco scored a brace in a 4-0 win over New York City and all eyes will be on him when the two teams face each other in the capital of USA.
Highligted Player (Maxim Tissot):
Maxim Tissot is a product of the Montreal Impact youth school. Tissot, though, signed his first professional contract with Trois-Rivieres Attak of Canada and he made 14 appearances for the club. On February 26, 2013 the Canadian footballer returned to Montreal Impact and he made his debut for the Saputo Stadium outfit on April 14, 2013 in a 1-1 draw with Columbus Crew. The left back substituted Italian ace Marco Di Vaio in the dying minutes of the match. Maxim Tissot played for the likes of Montreal and Otawa Fury in the past as well and on February 24, 2017 he signed a contract with D.C. United. Speaking of his international career, Tissot received his first ever call up for the Canada national team on November 6, 2014 for a friendly game against Panama. However, he made his Canada debut in January, 2016 against Iceland. It has to be noted that the D.C. United defender was born in Gatineau, Quebec, Canada on April 13, 1992.
Highlighted Team (Toronto FC):
Toronto are a club based in Canada, but they have been competing in Major League Soccer since 2007. Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment own both the soccer club and National Hockey League’s Toronto Maple Leafs. BMO Field is the club’s home ground and the capacity of the stadium is 30.000. The Canadian outfit impressed in the 2016 MLS Cup and they faced Seattle Sounders in the title game at BMO Field. However, the Canadians were more than unfortunate not to lift the silverware as they were beaten by the Sounders on penalties. Speaking of the Canadian Championship, Toronto FC won their fifth domestic title in 2016, with the team beating Vancouver Whitecaps in the final of the tournament. Montreal Impact are considered the club’s biggest rivals and there have always been fireworks in meetings between the two Canadian sides. Toronto FC’s home kit is red and it is no surprise they are nicknamed the Reds. It has to be noted that the club was founded back in 2005.
