Our prediction for this MLS match:
After dropping two points in a 2-2 draw with Vancouver Whitecaps in their last league match, Dallas will be looking to give fans something to cheer about when they host Los Angeles at their Toyota Stadium on Sunday. The Toros’ main goal is two secure a top-two finish at the end of the season and they need to take each and every game very seriously if they are to meet the goal. Los Angeles FC, on the other hand, are on a three-game winless run in the Major League Soccer and seeing that they are not regarded as good travelers, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts. In their first ever meeting in MLS the two teams played out a 1-1 draw, but home win should be considered this time out. Argentine attacker Maximiliano Urruti, who has netted six goals so far this term, will be the man to watch in the home team.
Highlighted Player (Jesse Gonzalez):
Jesse Gonzales is a Mexican footballer who was born on May 25, 1995 in Edenton, North Carolina, United States of America.

Highlighted Team (Los Angeles FC):
Seeing that Los Angeles FC will be competing in Major League Soccer from the 2018 season, the club chiefs did well to reinforce the squad. Several high-profile players joined the club in the winter of 2018, with Mexican ace Carlos Vela being the biggest name to sign a deal with LAFC.
