FC Dallas vs Minnesota United Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

FC Dallas come on the back of a disappointing exit from the CONCACAF Champions League following a 3-1 loss against Mexican outfit Pachuca. Dallas have not been involved in league action since the international break, but the club are unbeaten in the opening three matches of the 2017 MLS season. The team’s first game at the Toyota stadium finished as a 2-1 win over New England Revolution. A brace from Maximiliano Urruti helped overcome an early goal from Lee Nguyen. After a disastrous start to the season, Minnesota United claimed a surprise 4-2 win over Real Salt Lake. Luke Mulholland’s fourth-minute goal threatened another rout, but Kevin Molino equalised the 16th minute. Real Salt Lake collapsed in the second half, as Christian Ramirez scored twice and Johan Venegas once to render Yura Movsisyan’s late goal as a consolation.

Betting Tips and Predictions

All five of games involving Minnesota United have produced over 3.5 goals. Games involving Dallas have been low scoring in comparison, but Oscar Pareja’s team are well equipped to put away chances. I would back this game to produce over 3.5 goals. Minnesota have scored in all of their five matches. Dallas have failed to score one of their three league matches. However, I would back both teams to score in the game.

Total goals over 3.5 – 11/10

Both teams to score – 8/13

FC Dallas Preview

Even though FC Dallas have had an excellent start to the league campaign, the disappointment of a Champions League semi-final exit will hurt the team. Yet, home comfort will provide the team with plenty of confidence. Three of the next four matches for Dallas are at the Toyota stadium. The club would be reasonably happy with the four points from the two away matches at the start of the season. Dallas had the best home record in the Western Conference last season, while they suffered seven defeats on the road. Maximiliano Urruti has been in fine form and he has scored three goals in as many league games.

Minnesota United Preview

Minnesota capitalised on Real Salt Lake’s mistakes order to dish out a thrashing to an opponent. The club has been on the receiving end of several thrashings at the start of the season. Minnesota have conceded 20 league goals in the five games – as astonishing 12 goals more than any other opponent. The game against Real Salt Lake showed that the team are capable of scoring goals when presented with opportunities. Yet, most of the four goals scored by Minnesota came directly through mistakes by Real Salt Lake players. On the positive side, the club has scored in each of their league games.
