Our football match prediction:
Houston Dynamo are a team with two faces. Wilmer Cabrera’s men defeated the likes of Seattle Sounders, Columbus Crew and New York Red Bulls in front of home fans, with the team suffering defeats to Portland Timbers and New England on the road. Houston aim to keep their 100% record at home intact and they are regarded as favourites to win Saturday’s football game against Minnesota United. The newcomers have been struggling on the travels as well and you should bear in mind that they have already conceded 14 goals on the road in the 2017 MLS campaign. The two teams meet for the first time ever in a competitive match and, taking everything into account, we predict that the hosts will pick up all three points from Saturday’s game. Erick Torres has netted six goals in five appearances for the Dynamo and he is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders.
Highligted Player (Tyler Deric):
Tyler Deric is a product of Houston Dynamo football academy. On February 27, 2009 the USA goalkeeper signed a professional development deal with the Dynamo and he made his senior debut for the club on October 16, 2010. The shoot-stopper, who was born on August 30, 1988 played for the likes of Austin Aztex, San Antonio Scorpions and Rio Grande Valley FC Toros in the past as well, but he has yet to earn his first call-up for USA national soccer team. Speaking of his personal life, it has to be noted that Tyler Deric and his teammate Warren Creavelle were arrested in 2012 following a row with a police officer. The 191-cm-tall goalkeeper conceded six goals in 10 appearances for Houston Dynamo in the 2016 MLS campaign and he did well to keep six clean sheets. During his youth career Tyler played for North Carolina Tar Heels, but, as previously mentioned, Houston Dynamo coaches helped him improve his goalkeeping skills.
Highlighted Team (Minnesota United):
Based in the Minneapolis-Saint Paul area, Minnesota United are a professional soccer club that will compete in the Western Conference in the Major League Soccer from 2017. The Loons will make their MLS debut against Portland Timbers on March 4, 2017 and, no doubt, they have big ambitions for the forthcoming season. Minnesota United are the sixth team to join MLS from a lower division and they will welcome their rivals at TCF Bank Stadium. The capacity of the stadium is 52.525 and it was opened in September, 2009. Bill McGuire is the club’s owner and he is on a quest to turn Minnesota United into a top-table side in the Western Conference. Adrian Heath will be in charge of the club in the 2017 season and it has to be noted that the English tactician used to train the likes of Manchester City, Everton, Aston Villa and Espanyol in the past. You should know that the club was founded on March 25, 2015.
