Our prediction for this MLS match:
Seattle Sounders will be looking to overtake Sporting Kansas City in top position when they host Houston Dynamo at their Lumen Field. Seattle are undefeated in the 2021 MLS season, but they head into the midweek clash following back-to-back draws with Vancouver Whitecaps and Colorado Rapids. All Delem, Frei, Lodeiro, Morris, and Tolo have been struggling with injuries of late.
Houston Dynamo, on the other hand, are on a five-game winless run in the Major League Soccer, and given their anything but brilliant away record, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the title-chasing hosts. The good news for the visiting team is that midfielder Gabriel Vera returns from suspension. Defender Ethan Bartlow, though, remains on the sidelines through injury. You should bear in mind that Seattle are eyeing their 8th consecutive win over Houston in MLS.
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 (Houston Dynamo):
Houston Dynamo is 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. FC Dallas are regarded as the club’s main rivals and the two teams face each other in the Texas derby. Houston have developed a rivalry with Sporting Kansas City as well. The colors of the club are orange, black and white.
