Our prediction for this match:
Seattle Sounders will be looking to build on a 3-1 win over Los Angeles FC when they take on Dallas at Lumen Field in the MLS playoffs quarter-finals. Seattle are determined to defend their title, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Dallas in Wednesday’s football match. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Peru attacker Ruidiaz, who found the net in the 3-1 win over Los Angeles FC, but the opposition defenders should have Uruguay international Lodeiro at bay as well.
Experienced midfielder Gustav Svensson is likely to miss the game with injury. The Toros, on the other hand, showed character in the win over Portland, with Pepi scoring the equalizer in the dying minutes of the match. Dallas defeated the Timbers on penalties, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against the reigning champions.
Highlighted Player (Joevin Jones):
Joevin Jones is a pacey defender who plays for both Seattle Sounders and the Trinidad and Tobago national team. Jones spent his youth career at the likes of Defence Force, Mucurapo Senior Comprehensive and W Connection and he continued playing for the Savonetta Boys at senior level.
The Trinidad and Tobago international played six games for HJK Helsinki during in 2014 as a loan footballer and in 2015 he moved to MLS, signing a contract with Chicago Fire. Joevin Jones then joined Seattle Sounders, but in the 2018/2019 he decided to move to Germany, signing a deal with Darmstadt 98.
In 2019 he returned to Seattle. Jones, who was born in Carenage (Trinidad and Tobago) on August 3, 1991, made his Trinidad and Tobago full international debut on September 7, 2010, coming as a substitute in a match against Panama. His preferred foot is left, whilst his main position is left-back.
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.
