FC Dallas vs Colorado Rapids
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Thursday, 27 August 2020
Kick-off at 01:30 UK/ 02:30 CET
Venue: Toyota Stadium.
The Toros have the best defense in the entire Western Conference at the moment, and even when the East is considered, only one team has conceded fewer than them.
Meanwhile, Robin Fraser’s men have conceded the most number of goals of all the teams in the MLS as of now, and they also had a totally forgettable experience at the MLS is Back tournament – as they crashed out in the Group Stage itself, without a single win.
Going on, Luchi Gonzalez’s men have comparatively a far better form at the moment, and they definitely have been on a roll at home. On top of that, they also do have a great h2h record at home over this opponent.
For the reasons, expect a Dallas win this Thursday.
Dallas vs Colorado Rapids: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Nine of the former fourteen wins had gone to the Toros.
- Only twice have they lost against this rival in the past four years.
- At this venue, the hosts have recorded 21 of the preceding 27 wins.

Dallas vs Colorado Rapids: Prediction
Gonzalez’s men have lost just thrice in total since September of last year, and at home they have lost just once since July of 2019.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on a four-game winless run, and have lost three of these fixtures. In the process, they have also conceded 11 goals in total from these four matches.
On the road, they have not kept a single clean sheet in the whole of 2020, and have lost all but one of their away fixtures this year.
Going on, the last they won at this venue against this rival was in 2016. Also note that at this stadium, the hosts simply have been better in h2h clashes for over the past two decades.
By the looks of things, expect Dallas to have a great game this Thursday, and the post the three points on the board.
