Our prediction for this MLS match:
Sunday’s football game at Toyota Stadium pits together Dallas and Cincinnati, the two teams who sit in the different halves of the standings at the moment. The Toros aim to retain their spot in top seven in the Western Conference, whilst the newcomers are stuck at the bottom of the Eastern Conference, with the team collecting 18 points from possible 81 in the 2019 MLS season.
Cincinnati do not seem to be competitive at this level and given their shaky defence, we do not believe that the rock-bottom side are capable of spoiling Dallas’ party at Toyota Stadium. The Toros are determined to take part in the MLS play-offs at the end of the season and we are positive that they will take Sunday’s clash against the newcomers very seriously. It has to be noted that the two clubs meet for the first time ever in the Major League Soccer.

FC Cincinnati will make their MLS debut in the 2019 season. Based in Ohio, the Orange and Blue are a team who is expected to play their home games at West End Stadium.
