Our prediction for this MLS match:
Vancouver Whitecaps do not seem to be on top of their game ahead of the visit of Houston Dynamo, with the team suffering a loss in each of their last three league games. Marc Dos Santos’ men have been struggling at the back of late, but the game against Houston Dynamo could be the turning point for the hosts.
The Canadian outfit aim to move away from the rock-bottom position in the Western Conference and we predict that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Sunday’s football match. Davy Arnaud’s charges are on a seven-game winless run in the Major League Soccer, meaning that the hosts will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways in the MLS. In their last meeting in the league Houston Dynamo recorded a 3-2 win over Vancouver Whitecaps, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
