Our prediction for this MLS match:
Seattle Sounders and Dallas take on each other in a highly-anticipated MLS game at Lumen Field. Seattle aim to make amends for back-to-back losses to Sporting Kansas City and San Jose Earthquakes, and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Thursday’s football game. Keep in mind, though, that all Tolo, Morris, Lodeiro, Frei, and Delem are sidelined with injuries. Roldan is unlikely to feature in the midweek clash as he represented USA at the 2021 Gold Cup.
The Toros, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over LA Galaxy and Sporting Kansas City. Dallas have been showing signs of improvement of late, and given the number of absentees in the home team, share of spoils is on the cards. As for the visiting team, all Che, Martinez, Redzic, and Zobeck are likely to miss the game through injuries.
Highlighted Player (Jordy Delem):
Jordy Delem is a Seattle Sounders midfielder who represents Martinique on the international stage. Delem played for the likes of Club Franciscain, Arles-Avignon and Club Franciscain before joining Seattle Sounders in 2016. After making 19 appearances for Seattle Sounders 2 the Martinique footballer signed a first team deal with the MLS club in March, 2017.
It has to be noted that he played as a right back on his Seattle debut against Atlanta United (0-0). Jordy Delem represented Martinique at the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup, but he failed to impress in a 3-1 loss to Mexico. The 180-cm-tall player was born in Le Francois, Martinique and he has a contract with Seattle Sounders which expires in December, 2017.
His main position is defensive midfield, but, as previously mentioned, he is capable of playing as a full back as well. Jordy Delem has both Martinique and France passports, but he decided to represent les Matinino on the international stage.
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.
