USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 30 June 2019
Kick-off at 01:00 UK/ 02:00 CET
Venue: Audi Field (Washington).
DC put an end to their brief winless run with a Wayne-Rooney-beauty the last day, against Orlando City. The former was at home and took the lead in the 10th minute of the tie itself.
They led throughout the match, courtesy, the single goal scored early, but the defense did their job in protecting the slender lead. The team is now in the third position and hopes to climb to at least the second, due to them having a game in hand.
Toronto too, likewise their opponents, broke their winless run with a win the last match-day. They were at home and scored in the first minute itself before visitors Atlanta netted twice to take the lead. Five minutes later, Toronto slotted in a goal to bring the scores level.
Finally, in the 90+4th minute of the fixture, the home team scored the winner via a penalty, to ensure three points for the game.

DC United vs Toronto FC Prediction
DC has the home advantage, and with a spot in the top-most up for grabs, we can expect them to give the best of their efforts. They are unbeaten in their last four league games, though only the last one among them was a win.
At home, the team avoided a loss in four of the last five tries and found the back of the net in the last eight battles on the trot.
Meanwhile, the Canadians may have won their last game, but keep in mind that the team went winless in their last nine match-ups before that. They had also conceded two or more goals in seven of their last nine fixtures and was winless in 13 of their last 15 on the road.
Going on, they also let in two or more goals in ten of their last fifteen away encounters.
Finally, the last Toronto won at this venue was in 2016, and six of the last ten h2h wins at this venue went to the opponents. As such, expect Wayne Rooney’s side to come out on the top this Sunday.
Regarding goals, 11 of the last 14 face-to-face clashes saw both sides getting on the scorecard. Also, DC conceded in six of their last seven matches, and in seven of their last nine at home. Finally, with Toronto too having their confidence high due to their great win over Atlanta, we can expect them to go after goals as well.
