Our football match prediction:
Portland Timbers impressed in the opening match of the season, with the team rolling over Minnesota United (5-1) at their Providence Park. Fanendo Adi scored a brace in the victory over Adrian Heath’s troops. The Nigerian attacker failed to impress in Monday’s football game against ten-man LA Galaxy, but Diego Chara helped the team pick up all three points from the match. The Timbers aim to keep their 100% record intact and we predict that they will adopt an attack-minded approach against Houston Dynamo. Wilmer Cabrera’s team were impressive in warm-up games and they have been producing scintillating displays at the start of the new MLS campaign. Following a 2-1 win over Seattle Sounders in their opener, Houston Dynamo outplayed Columbus Crew in their second consecutive home fixture, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in Sunday’s game against Portland Timbers and, taking everything into account, we believe that there is a certain value in betting on the hosts.

Houston Dynamo are 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.

The colours of the club are orange, black and white.
