Dallas vs Minnesota Prediction and Betting Odds
FC Dallas will welcome Minnesota United at the Toyota Stadium in Major League Soccer.
Both the teams suffered losses in their last match and will be hoping for a win when they face each other. Dallas lost their sixth consecutive match to Sporting Kansas City 3-1 and their hope for a playoff berth is slowly vaporing out in the air.
Minnesota too faced a severe defeat at the hands of DC United with an identical scoreline.
Dallas vs Minnesota Prediction and Betting Odds: Preview
Dallas sacked manager Luchi Gonzalez following their 3-2 loss against Houston Dynamos and Marco Ferruzzi was handed the charge to lead the team. But their fortune hasn’t changed since then as the playoff is looking like a distant dream as things stand.
But they are about to play four of their next matches at home and it could lift their hopes to end the season on a high note. Dallas tends to lose their matches when they have more possession of the ball. They look dangerous when they are not in command of the ball. It’s looking difficult for them to make it to the playoffs as they have never really been able to stretch their winning run beyond three games.
Minnesota is currently placed 7th in the Western Conference and is still in the contention of a playoff berth. Their defeat against D.C. dealt a severe blow to their hopes.
Tyler Miller saved an Ola Kamara penalty to keep the scoreline under check otherwise the result would have been embarrassing for Minnesota.
Before their loss in the last match, Minnesota had two back-to-back clean sheets in their previous two matches and had netted five goals in the process.
