FC Dallas vs DC United
Major League Soccer
Date: Wednesday, 5th July 2017
Kick off at 01:30 UK/ 02:30 CET
Venue: Toyota Stadium.
Last year’s Supporters’ Shield winners overtook Portland Timbers at the second position of the Western Conference standings with the home win over Toronto in the derby match of the round on Saturday.
The Hoops will have a great chance to back up the fine display with a yet another victory in mid-week when they host the struggling DC United at Toyota Stadium.
The hosts finally look like the team which dominated Major League Soccer in the last season.
The main responsible for the hot run of form and back-to-back wins over Colorado Rapids and Toronto is Argentine striker Maximiliano Urruti who bagged a goal in each of the team’s last three fixtures.
The win over the last year’s MLS runners-up was fourth consecutive for Dallas in front of their fans. We must praise their phenomenal attacking form as they notched as many as 14 goals during the run.
Urruti and company will have a nice chance to continue their spell of excellent form this Tuesday because DC united are on a poor run having lost four of their last five league fixtures.
Ben Olsen has huge troubles with his team’s efficiency because DC bagged only a single goal in last five matches on the road (five consecutive defeats).
FC Dallas vs DC United: Head to head
The Hoops were more than impressive in the drubbing of DC United at Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium in March last year when they grabbed a comprehensive 0-3 victory.
It was Dallas’ second consecutive win in head to head meetings with DC who generally trail by four wins in H2H stats ahead of their 33rd clash with Dallas.
FC Dallas vs DC United: Prediction
This is going to be a one-way street from the very start of the match. The hosts are massive favourites and everything but a commanding win for Oscar Pareja’s side would represent a surprise for us.
