Houston Dynamo vs FC Dallas Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

Houston Dynamo failed to secure a first away win of the season after losing the lead twice in the 2-2 draw with LA Galaxy. Mauro Manotas opened the scoring in the 22nd minute, but Ema Boetang’s counter-attacking goal in the 35th minute levelled the scores. In the second half, Alberto Elis helped Houston retake the lead but a late goal from Romain Alessandrini saw Houston’s winless run on the road continue. FC Dallas failed to hold onto an advantage and could only draw 1-1 with Vancouver Whitecaps. Maximiliano Urruti’s brilliant solo goal provided the advantage for Dallas in the 52nd minute, but Cristian Techera’s free-kick equalised the scores in the 74th minute. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

FC Dallas have an impressive away record against Houston after managing three wins in the last four visits to the BBVA Compass stadium in the league. Houston have managed only one win in the last six meetings with Dallas in all competitions – home and away. Even then, Houston’s home form is rather impressive coming into this match with four consecutive wins. Dallas have managed just one win in the last seven league games. I would back a win for Houston Dynamo. Only one of the eight home games involving Houston has produced less than 2.5 goals. Even three out of the last five games – home and away – for Houston Dynamo has produced over 2.5 goals. I would back this game to have total goals over 2.5.

Houston Dynamo Preview

Houston Dynamo will be glad to end a string of away matches with a decent return, although the team’s wait for a first away win of the season continues. Houston were able to draw two out of the last three away games. The club’s home form remains spectacular with four consecutive league wins, while they are also undefeated in the eight games at the BBVA Compass stadium. Houston have the best home record across the 22 MLS teams this season. The club has scored 24 goals at home compared to just five on the road. Erick Torres is the top scorer with 10 league goals.

Houston Dynamo Team News

Eric Alexander (ligament) and George Malki (ligament) are the players unavailable for Houston due to injury.

FC Dallas Preview

FC Dallas have been unable to get much wins under the belt over the last few weeks, as Dallas struggle for consistency – home and away. The lack of convincing offensive push has been one of the reasons, as Dallas have scored only eight goals in the last six league games. The struggles have been more pronounced in the away matches, as Dallas have managed only two wins in seven away games – compared to four wins in the eight games. Manager Oscar Pareja will be keen on the upcoming run of three home games in four in the month of July. Maximiliano Urruti is the club’s top scorer with eight league goals.

FC Dallas Team News

Walker Zimmerman (ligament) is the only injury worry for FC Dallas.
