FC Dallas vs Seattle Sounders FC Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Dallas were last seen in the 1-1 draw with Real Salt Lake in the opening match of the 2018 MLS campaign. Real Salt Lake were able to stun Dallas with the 25th minute goal from Joao Plata. After spending a lot of time chasing the game, Dallas was finally back on level terms through Marco Silva’s own goal with four minutes left. Seattle Sounders were beaten 1-0 by Los Angeles FC at home. Despite dominating the game, Seattle were unable to find a way past the visitors, who scored in the 11th minute through Diego Rossi. Tony Alfaro showed his frustration by receiving a red card late in the game. Seattle had more disappointment after being knocked out of the CONCACAF Champions League by Guadalajara. Despite a 1-0 first leg win, Seattle were knocked out following a 3-0 second leg defeat.

Betting Tips and Predictions

In the last four years, this fixture has been dominated by the home teams. Dallas have picked up four wins in the last five home games against Seattle, but one has to go back to 2014 to witness Seattle being successful in an away match against Dallas. Seattle will be coming into the game with tired legs after being involved in the CCL games, while Dallas are preparing for the first match in 15 days. This situation, along with history, points to a home win.

Dallas have not kept a clean sheet in three competitive matches this season. It is difficult to expect an improvement in this regard, as Seattle do have some strong attacking capabilities. Seattle have scored in four out of the last six away games against Dallas. I see tremendous value in choosing both teams to score.

FC Dallas win – 8/13

Both teams to score – 10/11

FC Dallas Preview

Dallas have had a fortnight to prepare for the next MLS match, as the club go in search of a first league victory in the 2018 campaign. The early knockout from the CONCACAF Champions League leaves Dallas with the need to show plenty of improvement. Dallas would not have made too much fuss about the break had they started the campaign with a victory, but dwelling on the draw with RSL must be hard to take for the club.

 

FC Dallas Team News

Kellyn Acosta (hernia), Brandon Servania (muscle), and Anton Nedyalkov (Achilles tendon) are missing from action for FC Dallas.

 

Seattle Sounders FC Preview

Seattle Sounders made a poor start to the 2017 campaign and the current season appears to be no different. The failure to reach the semifinals of the Champions League coupled with the disappointing opening day defeat against Los Angeles FC raises a lot of doubts about the season. Manager Sigi Schmid would be disappointed with his team not being clinical against Los Angeles FC. Now, Seattle must try and avoid a repeat of 2017.

Seattle Sounders FC Team News

Osvaldo Alonso (quad) and Jordan Morris (cruciate ligament) will certainly miss the game due to injuries, while Chad Marshall (eye), Will Bruin (head), Victor Rodriguez, and Nicolas Lodeiro (sprain) may all miss out.
