Our football match prediction:
Toyota Stadium will host Monday’s football match between Dallas and New York City. Dallas have been producing scintillating displays in MLS this season and they totally outclassed Real Salt Lake in their last league game. The Hoops are brimming with confidence ahead of the visit of New York City, but beating the in-form Pigeons is easier said than done. Patrick Vieira’s men outplayed the likes of Columbus Crew and Atlanta United in previous two league fixtures and it has to be noted that experienced attacker David Villa scored his sixth goal of the season in the 3-1 win over Tata Martino’s men. Both teams are likely to go for a win in Monday’s showdown and we predict that fans will see a real football festival at Toyota Stadium. In their last meeting in MLS the two teams played out a 2-2 draw and the history is likely to repeat itself.
