Our prediction for this MLS match:
Vancouver and Dallas face each other at BC Place in what is expected to be a close MLS game. The Canadians kicked off their MLS campaign with back-to-back defeats to Real Salt Lake and San Jose Earthquakes, but they did well to crush Real Espana (5-0) in the CONCACAF Champions League qualifies. Both Cristian Gutierrez and Deiber Caicedo are sidelined with injuries, but they should be the only absentees in the home team.
The Toros, on the other hand, aim to build on a 3-1 win over Los Angeles Galaxy, but seeing that Vancouver are tough to beat at home, we are tempted to put our money on draw. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Jesus Ferreira, who scored a brace in the triumph over LA Galaxy, whereas both Paxton Pomykal and Marco Farfan are major doubts.
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 colors 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.
