Our prediction for this MLS match:
New York City play host to Dallas at their Yankee Stadium in a highly-anticipated MLS game. The Blue Pigeons aim to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Nashville (1-3) and New England (1-2), and they are likely to go all guns blazing at the Toros. Defender Aldredo Morales is banned for the hosts, while Santiago Rodriguez has joined Brazil international Heber in the recovery room.
Anyhow, the bookies see New York City as hot favourites to win Wednesday’s clash as Dallas have been struggling at the back of late. The Toros conceded nine goals in total in the previous four league fixtures, which is probably the main reason why home win should be considered. All Bressan, Maurer, and Nelson are out of contention with injuries for the visiting team. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be teenage attacker Pepi, who is enjoying a season to remember.
Highlighted Player (Alexandru Mitrita):
Italian Serie A is a Romanian footballer who is well known for his height. The 199-cm attacking midfielder, who is capable of playing as a winger as well, was born in Craiova on February 8, 1995 and he started his youth career at Turnu Severin.
In 2012 he moved to fellow Romanian club Viitorul Constanta and in 2015 he signed a deal with Italian side Pescara. After scoring 2 goals in 34 appearances for the Dolphins, he returned to Romania, signing a contract with Universitatea Craiova. Alexandru Mitrita was on New York City’s radar during the 2017/2018 season and seeing that he scored 18 goals in the national championship, the chiefs of the MLS club decided to sign him in 2019.
The Romanian footballer made his MLS soccer debut in a 2-2 draw with Orlando City, but he failed to find the net. Alexandru Mitrita’s preferred foot is right, but he often plays as a left winger.
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.
