Minnesota United’s good run of form has seen them leapfrog Dallas in the Western Conference table in recent weeks and Sunday’s hosts sit a point above of their guests with a game in hand. However, Dallas have a good record against the home side and will be confident they can move back in front of Minnesota United with a win at Allianz Field on Sunday.
Montreal Impact twice took the lead at home to Minnesota United last weekend but still came away with no points to show for their efforts. Jackson-Hamel opened the scoring in the very first minute for the hosts but their guests equalised eight minutes later via Toye. Montreal Impact moved back in front in the thirteenth minute thanks to a Camacho effort but a penalty in first-half stoppage time from Finlay saw Minnesota United draw level once again. An early goal in the second half from Toye, his second of the game, put Minnesota in front for the first time in the match and despite their best efforts Montreal Impact could not carve out an equalising goal and the scoreline ended 3-2.
Dallas controlled the majority of their last match at home to DC United and thoroughly deserved the three points they eventually earned. Mosquera put the hosts in front in the sixth minute and second-half substitute Badji doubled Dallas’ lead in the sixty-fifth minute. DC United were reduced to ten-men in the seventy-third minute when Acosta was shown a straight red card but that had little impact on the final score.
The head to head record between these two clubs and Dallas’ performances over the last six weeks suggests that under 2.5 goals will be scored in Sunday’s game and that the visitors have a great chance of taking home all three points. Under 2.5 goals have been produced in three of the pairs previous four encounters and Dallas have won three of their four matches against Minnesota United. Dallas’ last three matches have all produced under 2.5 goals and the visitors have kept three clean sheets in their last five matches in all competitions, which is why we’re backing a 1-0 win for Dallas this weekend.
Quintero top scores for the hosts this season with six league goals, while Badji and Ferreira both lead the way for Dallas with five MLS goals apiece. We’re confident that under 2.5 goals will be scored in Sunday’s match and have predicted a final scoreline of 1-0 to Dallas. The visitors have a good record against their hosts and there isn’t much between the pair in the table, but the Dallas defence has been strong in recent weeks and that could make all the difference this weekend.
