Our prediction for this MLS match:
Nashville and Dallas square off against each other at Nisasn Stadium in what is expected to be a very close midweek game. Nashville are enjoying a very successful debut MLS season, with the team sitting in 8th position in the standings ahead of the visit of Dallas. The hosts are undefeated in the previous five league fixtures; therefore, we are positive that they are going to grab something from the match. Both Accam and Badji should miss the game through illness, while Tribbett is sidelined with injury.
The Toros, on the other hand, have been showing signs of improvement of late, with the team recording back-to-back wins over Inter Miami and Houston Dynamo in the previous two league fixtures. Dallas, though, are not regarded as good travellers, which is the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on draw. Both Acosta and Pomykal are out of contention through injury for the visitors.

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.
