FC Dallas vs Minnesota United
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 30 August 2020
Kick-off at 1:30 UK/ 2:30 CET
Venue: Toyota Stadium (Frisco).
FC Dallas was seventh in the Western conference in 2019 regular fixtures. The Toros qualified for the play-offs as the 13th side in the overall MLS table. But their triumph didn’t last much as they ended their run in the first round itself. They are in a bit of trouble this season but can bounce back.
Minnesota United finished the regular league last term at the fourth spot in the Western conference and was well within the top ten in overall as the 7th placed side in the mix. Similar to the host, the Loons also did not cross the first round in the play-offs. The visitor has carried on their form this season too.

FC Dallas vs Minnesota United Prediction
FC Dallas is near to the bottom of the table, but they have lost only one of their 5 games in the campaign so far this season. The Toros have 3 draws in the remaining showing they have a breakable defense which can give away the game in hand.
But with their home ground advantage, the Hoops can create more chances. Besides, they will be on the back of a goalless draw on the road against Houston Dynamo last time out. Since the Loons are visiting after a 1-2 loss at home against Sporting Kansas City, it will be an added advantage for the host.
We cannot take Minnesota United for granted as they are five points ahead of the home team in the league table as it stands. So, the safest bet for the punters in the match, which is likely to witness both teams score, will be a double chance favoring FC Dallas.
