Our prediction for this MLS match:
Dallas and Philadelphia Union face each other at Toyota Stadium in what is expected to be a close MLS game. The Toros rolled over San Jose 4-1 at the weekend, with the team retaining third place in Western Conference, and they must be high on spirits ahead of the midweek game. A man to watch in the home team will be talented forward Jesus Ferreira, who scored a brace in the last league match, while Lucas Bartlett remains on the sidelines with a broken rib.
The U’s, on the other hand, aim to cement top position in the standings, but beating Dallas on the road is easier said than done. Since the Toros are tough to beat at home, there is a big value in betting on draw. As for the visiting team, there are no fresh injury worries ahead of the trip to Texas.
