Dallas vs Seattle Sounders: Preview and Predictions

Dallas vs Seattle Sounders
United States – MLS
Date: Sunday, 18 March 2018
Kick-Off at 21:00 UK
Venue: Toyota Stadium (Frisco).

The only game scheduled for Sunday is also the most interesting one of the entire Matchday as CONCACAF Champions League participants Dallas and Seattle Sounders are about to lock horns at Toyota Stadium in Texas. Neither of the sides will head into it in high spirits after suffering the elimination from the continental competition.

The Hoops were much closer to book their place in the last 16 of the competition as they were denied by the away goal rule in the last 32 round tie against Panama’s Tauro. The team led by Oscar Pareja just does not seem to have any luck as they’ve also missed the playoffs by a goal difference last time out ending the regular season level on points with the sixth-placed SJ Earthquakes on the West.

Dallas have begun their MLS campaign with a disappointing 1-1 home draw against Real Salt Lake two weeks ago and grabbing the first win of the season against last term’s runners-up will be quite a significant challenge for Pareja and his side.

The visitors also got off to a disappointing kick off to the new campaign falling 0-1 at home to Los Angeles FC two weeks ago. They’ve needed their CONCACAF Champions League campaign in the last 16 round losing 3-1 on aggregate to Mexican Guadalajara (3-0 defeat on the road in mid-week).

Dallas vs Seattle Sounders: Head-to-head

Seattle Sounders have been much more successful over the course of history.

Rave Green lead the head to head tie by seven wins head of 30th encounter with Dallas.

The Hoops have, however, been better in matches at Toyota Stadium where they’ve won 6 and lost only 3 of 12 matches against Seattle.

Dallas vs Seattle Sounders: Prediction

The bookies see Dallas as the 1.61 favourites to get the spoils here, but we just don’t notice ny value there.

Instead, the best way to go around here would be to back the draw at the odds of 3.50.
