Our prediction for this MLS match:
BBVA Compass Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Houston Dynamo and Dallas. The Toros restarted the season with a 1-0 loss to Nashville, with the two teams playing out a goalless draw only four days later. Dallas are eager to put an end to their goalless run, and we predict that they will adopt an attack-minded approach against Houston.
The Orange are eager to impress in their first league fixture after the coronavirus football break, and seeing that they looked sharp in front of goal at the MLS is back tournament, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. One of the men to keep an eye on in the home team will be new signing Memo Rodriguez, who scored two goals at the aforementioned pre-season tournament, while Houston defenders should have experienced Czech Republic international Zdenek Ondrasek at bay.
Highlighted Player (Romell Quioto):
Romell Quioto is a pacey winger who plays for both Houston Dynamo and the Honduras national football team. Quioto was born in Balfate (Honduras) on August 9, 1991 and he played for Union Ajax during his youth career. The Honduras striker started his senior career at Vida and it has to be noted that he scored 20 goals in 77 appearances in the league for the club.
In 2012 he was sent on loan to Polish club Wisla Krakow, but he played no more than nine games for The White Star in Ekstraklasa. Romell Quioto then took a step forward in his career as he signed a contract with famous Honduras club Olimpia. After scoring 38 goals in 96 league fixtures for the capital club the 180-cm-tall attacker decided to taste MLS football.
Quioto moved to Houston Dynamo in December, 2016 and he has been playing for the Major League Soccer club ever since. Speaking of his international debut, Romell Quioto received his first call-up for Honduras on February 29, 2012 for a friendly game against Ecuador.
Highlighted Team (FC Dallas):
Despite making it to the 2010 MLS Cup final, Dallas eventually failed to win the domestic trophy. The Toros (Bulls) were beaten by Colorado in the final played at BMO Field in Toronto and you should bear in mind that the Rapids scored the winner in the extra time.
That was the first and only time Dallas participated in the MLS Cup final, but in 2016 the club won the Supporters’ Shield and the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup. The Toros play their home games at Toyota Stadium, the venue that was opened in August, 2005. The stadium’s original name was Pizza Hut Park, but in September 2013 it was renamed as Toyota Stadium after Pizza Hut Park left as a main sponsor.
FC Dallas wear red shits with white stripes when playing at home, while their secondary colors are white and blue. Former Ajax and River Plate ace Mauro Rosales, who joined the Toyota Stadium outfit in 2016, is regarded as one of the club most significant stars.
