FC Dallas vs Colorado Rapids Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

A highly entertaining game saw Dallas suffer a 4-1 loss against Minnesota United. Tesho Akindele gave Dallas a lead after 14 minutes, but the home team were able to get a 2-1 lead into the second half after goals from Christian Ramirez and Miguel Ibarra. The crucial moment in the game came in the second half when substitute Mauro Diaz missed a penalty for Dallas. Minnesota were able to score two quick goals – through Ethan Finlay and Abu Danladi – in the latter stages to make Dallas pay for this miss. Colorado Rapids lost 2-1 against Vancouver Whitecaps during the weekend. Fredy Montero’s early goal was cancelled out by Dominique Badji just before half-time. However, Yordy Reyna provided Vancouver with a 54th minute goal. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Dallas and Colorado Rapids will be reasonably pleased with their performances during the weekend, irrespective of the results. Games between Dallas and Colorado Rapids have been evenly fought contests with three out of the last six meetings ending as a stalemate. Dallas may be at home, but Colorado Rapids have shown decent form in the last couple of matches. I would go with a draw in this game.

The 2017 MLS campaign may see Dallas and Colorado as amongst the lowest scorers 40 and 27 goals respectively. Yet, both teams have been decent going forward in the last few matches. Dallas have scored in three of the last five, while Colorado have an even better record with at least a goal in four out of the last five. I would back both teams to score.

Draw – 18/5

FC Dallas Preview

Dallas will be surprised to remain in the hunt for the play-off places even after having gone through an extraordinarily poor run of form over the last few weeks. The team has not managed a league victory in the last 10 matches, and the club has picked up just four points in this period. Yet, they remain only one point behind the top six. San Jose occupy the sixth spot with five matches left, but the club has one fewer game than Dallas and are ahead just by a point. Maximiliano Urruti is the leading scorer at the club with 12 league goals.

FC Dallas Team News

Tesho Akindele is the player suspended for the game due to his straight red card against Minnesota United.

Colorado Rapids Preview

Colorado Rapids cannot wait for the run of home matches to begin, as the club once again fell to a disappointing loss on the road. Three out of the next four games are at the Dick’s Sporting Goods Park and this represents the best opportunity for the Rapids to get away from the bottom. Colorado will certainly feel confident about moving away from the bottom, as the club only one point behind LA Galaxy. Even though Colorado have the worst offensive record (27 goals), they have been able to score in four of the last five games – indicating an improvement under Cooke. Dominique Badji is the leading scorer at Colorado with nine league goals.

Colorado Rapids Team News

Kevin Doyle (concussion) is the only player on the sidelines for Rapids manager Steve Cooke.
