FC Dallas vs Minnesota United
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 11 August 2019
Kick-off at 01:00 UK/ 02:00 CET
Venue: Toyota Stadium (Frisco).
Minnesota occupies the second position in the Western table but needs to overcome a deficit of 14 mammoth points to climb just one spot. They are currently unbeaten in their last five matches in the competition, which only two squads in the conference could make a claim about.
But one glaring weakness of the team is clearly their shortcoming on the road. At home, the players have been exemplary, only to drop points consistently while away from the venue.
Dallas, who could climb six spots with a surplus of just five points, could make use of this opportunity. They also have the confidence of returning awe-inspiring stats from home ties.

FC Dallas vs Minnesota United Prediction
It’s a well-known secret that Minnesota struggles on the road. They were winless in seven of the last ten away ties and lost six of them. On the contrary, Dallas was unbeaten in 14 of their last 17 home ties, and have lost just once the whole season in front of the home crowd.
Additionally, at this stadium, the hosts have a 100% winning record against this opponent. As such, expect a good day of outing for the home fans.
Coming to goals though, despite Dallas never conceding against this opponent at home, the form that United has built up over the course of the last several weeks cannot be discarded without consideration. They have scored thrice or more in two of their last three road trips, and twice or more in seven of their last twelve overall fixtures.
With these in mind, expect the BTTS criterion to be rightfully filled.
