Our football match prediction:
FC Dallas return hope after back-to-back games on the road, hoping to get back to winning ways against Toronto FC.FC Dallas are coming off from a 1-1 Texas Derby draw against Houston Dynamo, which is the second consecutive 1-1 draw for Dallas following a stalemate in Vancouver. The Texas side return home eager to get back on winning ways and to grab three points that could possibly see them go to the second place in the standings given the fact the total of four sides are currently stuck neck to neck at 25 points on the tally. Toronto FC marked the exact half through the MLS season with a 2-0 win over New England Revolution. It’s been a rather positive half season for Toronto who are currently topping the charts in the Eastern Conference with a point advantage in front of Chicago Fire. Toronto FC’s fine form comes as direct influence of Jozy Altidore who’s been in stellar form for his club. Tied with Sebastian Giovinco with second goals to his name, Altidore has been the major power engine for his side.

Highlighted Team (Toronto FC):
Toronto are a club based in Canada, but they have been competing in Major League Soccer since 2007. Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment own both the soccer club and National Hockey League’s Toronto Maple Leafs. BMO Field is the club’s home ground and the capacity of the stadium is 30.000. The Canadian outfit impressed in the 2016 MLS Cup and they faced Seattle Sounders in the title game at BMO Field. However, the Canadians were more than unfortunate not to lift the silverware as they were beaten by the Sounders on penalties. Speaking of the Canadian Championship, Toronto FC won their fifth domestic title in 2016, with the team beating Vancouver Whitecaps in the final of the tournament. Montreal Impact are considered the club’s biggest rivals and there have always been fireworks in meetings between the two Canadian sides. Toronto FC’s home kit is red and it is no surprise they are nicknamed the Reds. It has to be noted that the club was founded back in 2005.
