Our prediction for this MLS match:
In-form Nashville will look to seal their spot in top four when they welcome Houston Dynamo to their Geodis Park on Monday. The Yellow-Blacks have been producing fine displays in September, and it is no wonder the bookies see them as hot favourites to beat the Orange Crush. A man to keep an eye on in the home side will be Hany Mukhtar, who has netted 23 goals this season, while providing 11 assists for his teammates, whilst there are no fresh injury worries in Gary Smith’s team.
Houston, on the other hand, head into the penultimate game of the season with the lack of motivation as they missed out on a spot in the playoffs. Anyhow, anything but a routine home win would be a major surprise. Both Daniel Steres and Hector Herrera are sidelined with injuries, but they should be the only absentees in the away team.
Highlighted Player (Anibal Godoy):
Anibal Godoy is a professional footballer who plays for Panama national football team. The powerful midfielder was born on February 10, 1990 and he has been playing for los Ticos since March 4, 2010 when he made his debut for the national team.

Speaking of his club career, Godoy played for Chepo of Panama from 2007 to 2010 and he moved to Europe in the summer of 2013, signing a deal with Hungarian outfit Honved.
After playing 24 league games (one goal) for Honved, Godoy signed for Major League Soccer club San Jose Earthquakes in August 2015. Anibal Godoy is a defensive midfielder and his preferred foot is left. His contract with San Jose should expire in December, 2017 and it has to be noted that he began his youth career Arsenal de Sarandi of Argentina.
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.
