Our prediction for this MLS match:
Dallas will look to extend their unbeaten run to four games when they take on Austin at their Toyota Stadium. The Toros have been showings signs of improvement of late, with the team beating both LA Galaxy and Sporting Kansas City, while sharing the spoils with Seattle Sounders. Teenage attacker Ricardo Pepi, who has netted eight goals so far this season, will be the man to watch in the home team. All Che, Martinez, Redzic, and Zobeck are out of contention through injuries for the home team.
Austin, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from a 1-0 loss to Colorado Rapids, with the team beating Houston Dynamo 3-2. The newcomers regained a much-needed confidence, but given their anything but good away record in the Major League Soccer, home win should be considered. All Hoesen, Schoenfeld, Segura, and Sweat have been struggling through injuries.
