The Black and Red are on a 6 game winning streak in MLS. A 5-0 win at home against Montreal has got the attention of other team in the league.
Coach Ben Olsen must be wondering how this team failed miserably in the first half of the league. This team shouldn’t be in the 7th place in Eastern Conference, if they had been playing like this since the start of the season.
Wayne Rooney netted 4 times in the last 2 games, showing he has the same vigor in him as his old self. A big player like him shining will have his team’s morale sky high.
Argentinian midfielder Luciano Acosta is the top assist provider in the league with 14 chances created for his teammates to score. The boy has a bright future ahead of him. Center- back Pirez and midfielder Gressel have featured in the team of the week for the team from Washington.
Dallas also has a contrasting record in the previous games with a 5 game unbeaten record. Coach Oscar Pareja also called Papi has helped his team to be the toppers in the Western Conference.
The previous game saw them defeat Orlando City 2-0 at home. Both the goals came in the second half.

DC United vs FC Dallas Predictions
DC is on a role scoring 13 goals in their former 5 games in MLS. Rooney is looking good with his finishing after a long time. Once the lethal weapon of Manchester United, he had a difficult time since leaving them and joining Everton. But now he is showing signs of that old striking prowess he possesses.
Acosta was a nice addition to the team for DC. If he can supply balls to Rooney then we may be looking at a goal fest.
The Burn is not bad at scoring either. Papi’s team had conjured 8 goals in past 5 games in the league.
