FC Dallas vs DC United Match Prediction

By William Hall

FC Dallas confirmed their return to form with a convincing 3-1 win over table leaders Toronto FC. Roland Lamah scored the opening goal after just five minutes to provide Dallas with a decisive advantage, and he doubled the advantage in the 21st minute. Marco Delgado’s 56th minute tap-in threatened a comeback, but Maximiliano Urruti confirmed the three points with a late goal. DC United’s poor form continued after a 2-0 loss against Montreal Impact. The home team came up with two quickfire goals from Blerim Dzemaili and Chris Duvall to keep DC United at the bottom of the table.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Dallas have been able to spark a comeback in the last few weeks with the club managing three wins in the last five games of all competitions. There has been a noticeable improvement in home form with four consecutive wins in the MLS and U.S. Open Cup games. DC United are without any kind of form – home and away – after failing to score in the last four away games, which have all been a defeat. DC United have also failed to win in the last six away games against FC Dallas, who have been able to register four wins in these games. I would back a FC Dallas 2-0 win.

FC Dallas have opened the scoring in five out of the last six home games against DC United. Dallas have also been the first team to score in the last four home games. I would back Dallas to score the first goal.

FC Dallas Preview

Dallas went through a huge wobble in form that seemed to even threaten a place in the top six of the MLS 2017 campaign. Yet, the club has recovered the form to a certain extent with just one defeat in the last five league matches. The most impressive result in a long time might have been the victory over Toronto, and it will provide the team with plenty of confidence. Dallas have now managed back-to-back home wins after having previously won four games without a win at the Toyota Stadium. Maximiliano Urruti is the top scorer at FC Dallas with 10 league goals.

FC Dallas Team News

DC United’s struggles do not seem to have a conclusion as the team goes from one bad result to the other – especially in the away games. United have lost four out of the last five games in all competitions, while they have failed to score in these defeats. More worrying for manager Ben Olsen is the inability to score even with the best chances. The club has created very little opportunities this season. United have the worst scoring record among all teams in the MLS 2017 table with only 12 goals in 18 games. Luciano Acosta remains the club’s biggest threat while he has scored four goals.

DC United Preview

Walker Zimmerman (ligament) is the only player unavailable due to injury.

DC United Team News

Ben Olsen will not be able to select Nick DeLeon (groin), Patrick Mullins (knee), and Bobby Boswell (groin) due to injuries.
