FC Dallas vs Colorado Rapids
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Saturday, 23rd March 2019
Kick-off at 21.55 UK/ 22.55 CET
Venue: Toyota Stadium (Frisco).
Dallas qualified for the playoffs with some games to spare last year, and this season, they are almost in the same direction. The team is pretty strong at home, and 2019 has seen them stay unbeaten in front of the home crowd so far. Just the last match-day, the free-scoring LA Galaxy faced a 2-0 defeat at the Toyota Stadium.
The Rapids, meanwhile, are still stuck in the rut that they have been in all last season long. They finished second to last in the Western Conference, in the 2018 MLS, and lucky for them, the league doesn’t employ the system of relegation. This season, they are winless so far and have lost the only away game they played.

- The Rapids returned just a single goal in the last three matches combined at this stadium.
FC Dallas vs Colorado Rapids Prediction
Dallas would love to replicate their success last season, and with an easier fixture quite early in this edition of the MLS, that too at home, the team would try to take full advantage of it. They are unbeaten at home so far this year, whereas the Rapids have not won a single game in 2019. They also lost the lone game they played on the road this year.
Moreover, eight of the last twelve h2h wins were recorded by Dallas, and at this venue, 19 of the last 25 wins went to the same team as well. And importantly, Dallas was unbeaten in 19 of their last 22 home ties, whereas Rapids were winless in 16 of their last 20 on the road.
Expect the hosts to win the game this Saturday.
Taking into account the struggles of Colorado away from home, and the fact that they failed to score in two of their last three visits to this venue, count on Dallas to keep their half clean of goals for at least the first 45 minutes of the tie.
