Our football match prediction:
Having played out a goalless draw with DC United at the weekend, Sporting Kansas City will be looking to record their first win of the season when they square off against Dallas at their Children’s Mercy Park. The Wizards aim to start a winning run in MLS, but Sunday’s football match against Dallas will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. USA international Graham Zusi is undisputedly the team’s key player and all eyes will be on him when the two teams face each other on Matchday 2. The Toros kicked off the new campaign with a 2-1 win over LA Galaxy at Stubhub Center and they are eager to build on the triumph. It seems as if both teams will go for a win in Sunday’s clash and we predict that fans will see goals galore at Children’s Mercy Park. In their last meeting in MLS they played out a thrilling 2-2 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.
