Our football match prediction:
Sporting Kansas City welcome Dallas at their Children’s Mercy Park on Sunday. The Wizards aim to regain top position in the Western Conference, but it remains to be seen if they are capable of bouncing back from a 1-0 loss to Seattle Sounders. Sporting are undefeated at home this season and we predict that they are going to grab something from Sunday’s football match. Following back-to-back defeats to the likes of Vancouver Whitecaps and Philadelphia Union, Dallas played out a goalless draw with Colorado Rapids at the weekend and they are now on a quest to return to winning ways in the Major League Soccer. However, considering that the Wizards are tough to beat at home, there is every chance the two teams will share the spoils at Children’s Mercy Park. In their last meeting in Kansas City the two teams played out a goalless draw.
Highligted Player (Diego Rubio):
Diego Rubio is a Chilean attacker who signed his first professional deal with Colo-Colo. Rubio, though, made only eight league appearances (scoring three goals) for the Chilean outfit and in 2011 he moved to Europe, signing a deal with Primeira Liga team Sporting Lisbon. After playing only 11 league matches for the Lions, the 179-cm tall striker joined Spanish club Valladolid at the age of 22. It has to be noted that during his spell with Sporting Lisbon he was loaned to the likes of Pandurii Targu Kiu and Sandnes Ulf. On September 1, 2016 Diego Rubio signed a permanent teal with Sporting Kansas City and he has been playing for the MLS club ever since. Rubio was born on May 15, 1993 in Santiago, the capital of Chile, and he made his debut for the Chilean national football team in June, 2011 against Paraguay. His contract with Sporting Kansas City expires on June 30, 2017.
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 colours 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.
