FC Dallas vs Houston Dynamo
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Monday, 26 August 2019.
Kick-off at 01:00 UK / 02:00 CET
Venue: Toyota Stadium (Frisco).
There was certainly no dearth of goals for FC Dallas in their most recent cross-conference match-up which saw them play a six-goal thriller against Montreal Impact on the road. Ultimately though, both the teams had to be content with sharing the spoils, as the clash ended in a 3-3 draw at the end of the ninety minutes.
Houston Dynamo are on a miserable run at the moment and have not tasted success in any of their last five games in a row. The squad did, however, manage to put an end to their dismal four-match losing streak the other week by picking a point off of Colorado Rapids in a 2-2 tie at home.
The visitors are presently sporting the worst away record in the conference, and will have to put in the extra effort on Monday as the prospect of another defeat is certainly in the reckoning.

FC Dallas vs Houston Dynamo Prediction
The hosts will be heaving a sigh of relief as home advantage has been suiting them well this season. The team have lost just once at home in their new campaign and are currently undefeated in their previous five games on home soil, that too across all competitions.
Additionally, they are up against a Houston Dynamo side that has admitted defeat in nine of their last ten trips on the road. Things have not ended well for the away side in their previous visits to this venue either.
The Oranges last got the better of FC Dallas in their outings way back in 2011. Considering that they have not been able to ensure a winning run of form in their recent clashes away from home either, FC Dallas are the potential frontrunners to come out on top in this one.
Three of their last five fixtures have seen over 2.5 goals on the scorecards. Given that the two teams have also scored twelve goals between them from their previous two matchups in the MLS as well, expect a high scoring clash, by all means, this week.
