Our prediction for this MLS match:
New York City will be looking to record their first win of the season when they welcome Dallas at their Yankee Stadium. New York City kicked off the new MLS campaign with a 1-0 loss to Columbus Crew, with the team suffering a defeat to Toronto at BMO Field as well. Ronny Deila’s men have yet to find the net in the 2020 season, and, no doubt, they will fight tooth and nail in Saturday’s football match against Dallas.
The Toros, on the other hand, collected four points from the first two games of the season. Dallas aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, and given their attacking potential, we believe that punters can find value in betting on both teams to score. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Czech Republic international Zdenek Ondrasek, who has already netted two goals in the MLS this term.
Highlighted Player (Alexander Ring):
Born in Helsinki, Finland, Alexander Ring is a Finnish footballer who plays for MLS club New York City. Before joining the City, Ring played for the likes of Klubi-04, Tampere United, HJK Helsinki, Borussia M’gladbach and Kaiserslautern.
His main position is central midfield, but he is capable of playing as a defensive midfielder and a right midfielder as well. Alexander Ring made his debut for the Finland national football team in June, 2011 in a 5-0 loss to Sweden. Despite the fact that he failed to impress on his debut, Finnish football star Roman Eremenko described him as a fantastic player.
Over the years Ring has established himself as a first-team regular in the national team and it has to be noted that he scored his first ever goal for Finland on March 26, 2013 against Luxembourg. Speaking of his club trophies, the Finnish footballer won the national championship with Helsinki on two occasions (2010, 2011). His preferred foot is right.
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.
