Our football match prediction:
Dallas have yet to suffer a loss in the 2017 MLS campaign. The Toros defeated the likes of New England and Minnesota United in previous two home games in the league and many people expect that they will extend their winning run this weekend when they welcome Sporting KC at their Toyota Stadium. Dallas want to keep their 100% record at home intact, but beating Kansas City is easier said than done. Sporting are undefeated in the 2017 MLS season and they are high on confidence ahead of the trip to Texas. The two teams shared the spoils in each of their last two meetings in Major League Soccer and, taking everything into account, they are likely to play out a draw at Toyota Stadium. Max Urruti failed to score in a 1-1 draw with SJ Earthquakes at the weekend, but he is widely expected to lead the attack for the hosts against Sporting KC.
Highlighted Player (Jesse Gonzalez):
Jesse Gonzalez is a Mexican footballer who was born on May 25, 1995 in Edenton, North Carolina, United States of America. Gonzalez played for FC Dallas during his youth career and the goalkeeper made 17 league appearances for the senior team as well. In 2015 he was loaned to Pittsburg Riverhounds and it has to be noted that he played only one game for the club.

Jesse Gonzalez has seven caps for Mexico U20 team and he made one appearance for Mexico U23 team as well. Jess Gonzalez, who grew up in Texas, wears number 1 on his shirt. Coach Jose Antonio Radilla helped Gonzalez make great progress during his youth career. The Mexican shoot-stopper has a deal with Dallas FC which expires on December 31, 2017.
Highlighted Team (Sporting Kansas City):
Sporting Kansas City have been competing in Major League Soccer since 1996 and they won their first MLS Cup trophy in 2000. The club faced Chicago Fire at Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium in Washington in the play-offs final and Miklos Jon Molnar scored the winner for Bob Gansler’s team. 13 years later Sporting Kansas City met with Solt Lake in the title game and they were fortunate to defeat the Royals on penalties. The Wizards welcome their rivals at Children’s Mercy Park, but they used to play some games at Blue Valley Sports Complex, Julian Field, Hermann Stadium and Durwood Soccer Stadium in the past as well. Sporting Kansas City were founded in 1995 and the club’s original name was Kansas City Wiz. The Wizards wear navy blue shirts and dark blue shorts when playing at home, while the colour of their away kit is blue. Former Wigan Athletic man Roger Espinosa is regarded as one of the club’s most notable players and he has been playing for the Children’s Mercy Park outfit since 2015.
