Our prediction for this MLS match:
Toyota Stadium will host MLS midweek fixture between Dallas and Sporting Kansas City. The Toros aim to recover from a loss to Houston in the Texas derby, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at the Wizards. You should bear in mind that Dallas have suffered only one loss in the first nine home games of the season. The Wizards, on the other hand, are on a three-game winning run in the Major League Soccer ahead of the trip to Texas.
Sporting aim to overtake Seattle in the top position in the Western Conference, and we are positive they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Thursday’s football game. Given Sporting’s attacking potential, and considering Dallas’ good home record, both teams to score betting option is the best one when it comes to the Toyota Stadium clash. Mosquera and Pomykal are out of contention for the hosts, while Besler, Gutierez, and Pulido should miss the match for the visitors.
Highlighted Player (Jesse Gonzalez):
Jesse Gonzales 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.

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.
