Our prediction for this MLS match:
Los Angeles Galaxy are brimming with confidence ahead of Thursday’s football game against Dallas. Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Co. did well to record back-to-back victories over the likes of Montreal Impact and San Jose Earthquakes in previous two league fixtures and it has to be noted that they are eyeing their third consecutive clean sheet in the Major League Soccer. Los Angeles Galaxy are determined to book their place in the play-offs, but key player Zlatan Ibrahimovic need to keep on raising his form if Siegfried Schmid’s men are to finish the season in top six. Dallas, on the other hand, picked up all three points from Saturday’s clash against title holders Toronto, with the team extending their unbeaten run in MLS to four games. The Toros made a promising start to the season, but beating the high-flying LA Galaxy on the road is easier said than.
Highlighted Player (Zlatan Ibrahimovic):
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a Swedish footballer of Bosnian descent. Ibra was born in Malmo on 3 October, 1981 and, as a result, he decided to represent Sweden on the international stage. The 195-cm-tall attacker started his senior career at Malmo and in 2011 he moved to Ajax. Ibrahimovic was producing outstanding performances for the Amsterdammers from 2001 to 2004 and, as a result, he was linked with a move with several European giants. In 2004 he signed a deal with Juventus for a fee of €16 million. Ibra scored 23 goals in 70 league games with the Bianconeri and he won two Serie A trophies with club (both revoked due to the Calciopoli scandal).

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.
