Our prediction for this MLS match:
Children’s Mercy Park will host Sunday’s football game between Sporting Kansas City and Houston Dynamo. Sporting aim to extend their unbeaten run in MLS to seven games, but the match against Houston will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. The Dynamo did well to beat Colorado Rapids at home in their last league fixture, but their away record is anything but brilliant, which is the main reason why we are not temped to put our money on the visitors. The two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment and, taking everything into account, there is a big value in betting on draw. In their last meeting in Kansas City the two sides played out a goalless draw and, taking everything into account, we predict that the history is going to repeat itself. You should know that the Wizards are on a seven-game unbeaten run at home ground.
Highlighted Player (Felipe Gutierrez):
Filipe Gutierrez is a Spanish footballer who plays as a central midfielder for La Liga side Real Betis. The Chilean international is capable of playing as both attacking and left midfielder as well and he started his senior career at Universidad Catolica.
He scored 19 goals in 65 appearances for los Cruzados, but in 2012 he decided to move to Europe. Gutierrez signed a deal with Eredivisie side Twente in June 2012 for a fee of $4 million. After making 94 league appearances for Twente he joined La Liga team Real Betis on 6 July, 2016. Felipe Gutierrez won Copa America with Chile in 2015 as La Roja defeated star-studded Argentina in the title game. Speaking of his club honours, Gutierrez won the 2010 Primera division de Chile trophy with Universidad Catolica.
It has to be noted that he was named Most Valuable Player of the Eredivisie for the 2013/2014 campaign. Felipe Gutierrez earned his 27th cap for Chile in a 4-1 win over Venezuela in the World Cup qualifiers in March 2016.
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.
