Our prediction for this MLS match:
Despite being considered big underdogs in Sunday’s football match against LA Galaxy, Minnesota United did remarkably well to hold Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Co. to a 2-2 draw at Stubhub Center. The Loons put an end to their two-game losing run, but they need to keep on improving their game if they are to book their place in the MLS play-offs. Minnesota United have been struggling at the back of late and given their attacking potential, there is every chance fans will see a high-scoring affair at Toyota Stadium when they take on Dallas this weekend. The Toros aim to make amends for a 2-1 loss to Seattle Sounders and seeing that they are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. It has to be noted that the hosts will be without suspended defender Ziegler against Minnesota United.
