Philadelphia Union vs FC Dallas Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Philadelphia Union suffered a late collapse and ended up losing 3-0 against New England Revolution at the Gillette stadium. Kei Kamara’s 38th minute goal was the difference between the two teams until the 85th minute. However, a second goal of the evening from Kamara and Juan Agudelo’s 89th minute goal sent the Union to a heavy loss. FC Dallas suffered a humbling 4-0 loss against Vancouver Whitecaps at the Toyota Park. Despite decent chances, Dallas were 3-0 down by the 67th minute after goals from Bernie Ibini-Isei and Fredy Montero (2). Carlos Gruezo was sent off with a straight red card in the 59th minute, while Nicolas Mezquida’s stunning overhead finish completed the rout.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Dallas have been able to get the better of recent matches against Philadelphia Union after managing three wins in the last four. Philadelphia are expected to struggle even with home advantage, as they are winless in four games against Dallas. Confidence is also extremely low within the ranks at Union after three defeats in the last four. I would opt for a FC Dallas win. Even though Dallas have only managed three away wins this season, the team has failed to score only twice in 11 away matches. Dallas have scored in all of their previous visits to the Talen Energy Stadium. I would opt for Dallas to score over 1.5 goals.

FC Dallas win – 8/5 FC

Dallas to score over 1.5 goals – 6/5

Philadelphia Union Preview

The last few games have been extremely tough for Philadelphia Union, as they have been unable to come up with any answers to the questions asked by the opposition. A huge reason for the dip in form has been a string away matches, as the Union have been on the road for four of the last five games. Union have generally struggled on the road and they have just managed a solitary win in 11 attempts this season. The club would be delighted to get back to the Talen Energy Stadium, where they have a decent record after six wins in 11. Charles Sapong is the top scorer for Philadelphia with 10 goals in the league.

FC Dallas Preview

Dallas will consider themselves highly unlikely to suffer such a heavy loss against Vancouver Whitecaps, as the team certainly cannot be criticised of playing badly even after a 4-0 loss. There were decent chances for Dallas to score, but the club are now chasing for a return back to winning ways. Prior to the loss against Vancouver, Dallas had won three on the bounce to go top of the table. Now, the club have slipped behind Sporting Kansas City, although they have two games in hand. Despite struggling with away form so far this season, Dallas are unbeaten in the last three games on the road. Maximiliano Urruti is the top scorer with 11 league goals.
