Our prediction for this MLS match:
Real Salt Lake and Dallas go head to head at Rio Tinto Stadium on Sunday morning. The Royals desperately needed a win against Portland, and they managed to get one, with the team putting an end to their three-game winless run. Real Salt Lake aim to climb to the playoffs berth in the Western Conference, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Sunday’s clash.
Rusnak returns from international duty, while the likes of Garcia, Luiz, and Rossi are all rated doubtful after the trio was tested positive for coronavirus. The Toros, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss to Nashville, and given their anything but good away record in MLS, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the hosts. The likes of Hedges, Mosquera, and Pomykal are all likely to miss the match with injury.
Highlighted Player (Nedum Onuoha):
Nedum Onuoha was born in Warri, Nigeria on 12 November, 1986, but he was brought up in Manchester. He attended Xaverian College Manchester and he was a very good student. He was an outstanding junior sprinter as well and it has to be noted that he won the silver medal at the English School’s Athletics Association Junior 100 metres contest.
Speaking of his football career, he began playing at Manchester City at age 18, scoring three goals in 95 league appearances for the Citizens. He spent the 2010/2011 season on loan at Sunderland and in 2012 he signed a four-and-a-half-year deal with Queens Park Rangers.
Despite the fact that he was born in Nigeria, Onuoha was eligible to play for England and you should know that he has 20 caps for England U21 team. However, he was never given a senior England debut despite being really close on several occasions. Onuoha won the Championship play-offs with Queens Park Rangers in the 2013/2014 season.
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.
