FC Dallas vs Houston Dynamo Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

FC Dallas’ poor form continued as the club suffered a 2-0 loss against Sporting Kansas City at the Children’s Mercy Park. Diego Rubio scored from a corner in the 42nd minute to provide a decisive breakthrough in the game. Gerso Fernandes added a brilliant goal in injury time to confirm the three points for Kansas City. Houston Dynamo fell to a 2-1 loss against Vancouver Whitecaps in another disappointing away result for the team. Fredy Montero’s 17th minute penalty and Yordy Reyna’s spectacular goal in the 32nd minute put the home team in a comfortable position. Rommel Quioto did pull one back for Houston in the second half, but a comeback never materialised. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

One of the biggest advantages for FC Dallas happens to be home form, but the club are without a win at the Toyota Park in the last two matches. Houston have only picked up one away win this season, but the club have been able to manage three draws and a win in the last six on the road. Three out of the last five games between the two clubs has finished as a stalemate. I would go with a draw. Four out of the five recent games between Dallas and Houston have been low scoring with under 2.5 goals. Dallas have scored one goal in the last four league matches, while Houston have only seven goals in the last six away games. I see plenty of value in backing under 2.5 goals.

FC Dallas Preview

FC Dallas have lost three of the last four league matches to slip well below the top two places. Just a few weeks ago, the club looked like being capable of finishing in the top two, but the team might have lost their momentum at the worst possible time. A run of just one win in the last five league matches has pushed Dallas five points behind Seattle Sounders, who now lead the Western Conference. More worryingly, Dallas will have to deal with the likes of Sporting Kansas City, Houston Dynamo, and Portland Timbers in order to make a push for the top two. Maximiliano Urruti remains the top scorer at Dallas with 11 goals in the league.

FC Dallas Team News

There are no injury or suspension worries for FC Dallas coming into the game.

Houston Dynamo Preview

The away form continues to be a major source of concern for Houston Dynamo, as manager Wilmer Cabrera witnessed the team once again failed to come away with anything from their travels. Houston have only managed a single win from the 13 away matches. At the other end of the scale, they are yet to suffer a defeat in the 12 games this season. Cabrera will be worried at the prospect of back-to-back away games. The reason loss against Vancouver Whitecaps ended a six-game unbeaten run. Houston’s rate of victories have dropped due to top scorer Eric Torres, who has won league goals in the MLS 2017 goalscoring charts, failing to score since the start of July.

Houston Dynamo Team News

George Malki (cruciate ligament) and Eric Alexander (ligament) are the players unavailable for Houston Dynamo.
