Our football match prediction:
Sunday’s football match at BC Place Stadium pits together Vancouver Whitecaps and Dallas, the two Eastern Conference teams. Vancouver recorded a 3-1 win over Atlanta United in their last league game and they are brimming with confidence ahead of the visit of Dallas. The Canadian outfit are after their fifth home win of the season and we predict that they are going to give fans yet another reason for celebration. A man to watch in the home team will be Colombia international Fredy Montero, who has netted four goals in MLS so far this season. Dallas rolled over Real Salt Lake in their last home game in the Major League Soccer, but they failed to impress in a 2-0 loss to Portland Timbers at the weekend. The Toros are not regarded as good travelers and, taking everything into account, we predict that the Whitecaps are going to pick up all three points from Sunday’s encounter.
Highlighted Player (Kendall Watson):
Kendall Waston is yet another Costa Rican footballer who plays in MLS. The Vancouver Whitecaps centre back started his senior career at Sarprissa of Costa Rica and he played for the likes of Carmelita, Nacional, Bayamon, UCR and Perez Zeledon (on loan) in the past as well. Waston moved to MLS in the summer of 2014, signing a deal with Vancouver Whitecaps. The Costa Rica international scored only two goals in 11 appearances for the club in the 2014 season, but the club chiefs decided to keep hold of him. He found the net twice in 30 league games in the 2015 MLS campaign, while scoring three goals in his last season with the Canadian club. Kendall Waston was born in San Jose, Costa Rica on January 1, 1988 and he made his debut for the Costa Rica national team in May, 2013 in a match against Canada. The Vancouver Whitecaps forward scored his first goal for los Ticos on December 16, 2015 in a 1-0 victory over Nicaragua.
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.
