Our football match prediction:
Toyota Park will host Thursday’s football game between Dallas and Houston Dynamo. Both sides suffered defeats in their respective league fixtures at the weekend and, no doubt, they are eager to get back on course. The Toros kicked off the new MLS campaign in style, but they have been struggling in front of goal of late and you should bear in mind that they failed to find the net in three of their last four games in the league. Dallas suffered a 2-0 loss to Sporting Kansas City on the road at the weekend, but they are tough to beat at home and Oscar Pareja’s men are after their seventh home win of the season. Houston Dynamo were beaten by Vancouver Whitecaps at BC Place Stadium in their last league match and seeing that they struggle on the travels, we predict that the Toros will return to winning ways in the Major League Soccer.

Highlighted Team (Houston Dynamo):
Houston Dynamo are 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 colours of the club are orange, black and white.
