FC Dallas Prediction – Can Dallas break into top 7?

This Sunday evening clash takes on even more importance for the hosts, FC Dallas as they not only entertain local Texas rivals, Houston Dynamo, but they’re also aiming to grab the all-important 3 points that could lift them up into the top 7 of the Western Conference.

FC Dallas currently occupy 8th place in the conference but are level on points with Portland Timbers who suffered a 2-1 defeat at home to Seattle Sounders on Saturday, so Monday night’s hosts have plenty of incentive and opportunity to grab a win here.

Recent results overall appear to be a little sketchy for FC Dallas as they’ve collected just 1 win out of their last 5 matches, but form on home turf at their Toyota Stadium has been very solid indeed as they possess a home record of 7-5-1 23/13 and are unbeaten in their last 7 matches.

In addition, FC Dallas are unbeaten in their last 8 meetings on home turf against Houston Dynamo so they look well placed to get something from this clash.

Midfielder, Hollingshead (5 goals) along with forwards Badji and Ferreira (6 goals apiece) look the most likely for FC Dallas.

Houston Dynamo Prediction – Can Houston Dynamo break drought?

A 2-2 draw at home with Colorado Rapids last time out in the MLS ended a 4-match losing skid for Houston Dynamo but nevertheless, extended the visitors’ run without a win in the MLS to 5 matches as they prepare to take on local rivals, FC Dallas, in Monday night’s all-Western Conference clash.

Prior to the point with Colorado Rapids, Houston had slumped to 4 defeats to Seattle Sounders, Chicago Fire, New York City and Philadelphia Union, and this has left the visitors in a lowly 10 th place on the Western Conference ladder and 6 points adrift of the play-off pack.

Houston Dynamo have really struggled for results away from home this season too as their away record of 2-0-10 14/27 indicates, and the visitors head into this local derby having lost 10 of their last 11 matches on their travels, which is a very poor sequence of results indeed.

Throw in the fact that Houston have failed to score in 5 of these last 11 away matches and you get a feel of how much they’ve struggled to get results away from their BBVA Stadium where they’ve won 7 of their 9 wins in this season’s MLS.


Key-Facts – FC Dallas v Houston Dynamo

  • FC Dallas are unbeaten in their last 7 matches at home in the MLS
  • Houston Dynamo have lost 10 of their last 11 away matches in the MLS
  • FC Dallas are unbeaten in their last 8 meetings at home against Houston Dynamo


Betting Tips Verdict

History is on FC Dallas’s side as they prepare to grab another 3 points off their local rivals in this important derby clash.
