Our prediction for this MLS match:
America First Field will host Thursday’s MLS game between Real Salt Lake and Dallas, the two playoffs-chasing sides. The Royals suffered a dip in form, with the team losing three of their last four league matches, but a win over Dallas could see them climb to third place in the Western Conference. Both Erik Holt and Pablo Ruiz are sidelined with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
The Toros, on the other hand, aim to put an end to their three-game winless run, but given their poor away record in the 2023 MLS campaign, home win should be considered. It has to be noted that Dallas suffered four defeats in the previous five away games. As for the visiting team, all Antonio Carrera, Geovane Jesus, Bernard Kamungo, Alan Velasco, and Tarik Scott are out of contention through injuries.
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.
