Our prediction for this MLS match:
Sunday’s football game at Allianz Field pits together Minnesota United and Houston Dynamo, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. The Loons aim to retain their spot in top seven, while the Dynamo are eager to move away from the bottom. Minnesota United rolled over Los Angeles Galaxy 3-0 in their last home game, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Houston. All Agudelo, Hansen, and McMaster are sidelined with injuries for the home side.
Houston, on the other hand, have been showing signs of improvement of late, with the team beating both Dallas and Austin at home, while sharing the spoils with L.A. Galaxy on the road. Since both sides have been playing some high-scoring games of late, we are tempted to put our money on over 2.5 goals. Midfielder Nico Lemoine remains in Houston Dynamo’s recovery room, alongside Adam Lundqvist, who limped off with injury in the triumph over Toros.
Highlighted Player (Romain Métanire):
Born in Metz, France on March 28. 1990, Romain Metanire is a defender, who plays for Minnesota United in the Major League Soccer. Metanire started his senior career at Metz and after playing for the likes of Kortrijk and Reims, he moved to United States of America.
The 178-cm tall footballer made his debut for the Loons on March 3, 2019 in a 3-2 win over Vancouver Whitecaps in the opening match of the season. Despite being born in France, Romain Metanire represents Madagascar on the international stage. He made his debut for the national team in a 2-2 draw with Senegal in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers. His preferred foot is right and his main position is right-back.
Romain Metanire helped Reims secure automatic promotion to the Ligue 1 in the 2017/2018 season. Reims clinched top position in the Ligue 2 in style, 15 points clear Nimes, but the following season Metanire made only five appearances in the French elite division.
Highlighted Team (Houston Dynamo):
Houston Dynamo is an American professional soccer club owned by Jake Silverstein, Gabriel Brener, Ben Guull and Oscar De La Hoya, who is considered one of the greatest boxers of all time.
BBVA Compass Stadium is Dynamo’s home ground and the capacity of the venue is 22.039. Houston Dynamo won back-to-back MLS Cup trophies (2006, 2007), with the team beating New England Revolution in each of the two title games. It has to be noted that Houston finished the 2011 and the 2012 seasons as runners-up.
In 2008 the Dynamo made it to the North American SuperLiga final, but this time out their old rivals New England Revolution proved to be a big catch for the BBVA Compass Stadium outfit. FC Dallas are regarded as the club’s main rivals and the two teams face each other in the Texas derby. Houston have developed a rivalry with Sporting Kansas City as well. The colors of the club are orange, black and white.
