With the United States Major League Soccer moving forward we see 2 of the best MLS teams meet in a important pivotal game on Saturday night the 18 of July 2015 as FC Dallas plays the DC United at the Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas at 9 PM ET.
The Eastern Conference leaders DC United travels to play a top team of the West in FC Dallas, and the United team with a win can extend their lead in the league with a victory in Dallas, or will Dallas upset United and ruin this road trip for DC.
If you Bet on MLS and at SBG sportsbook or similar betting sites offshore and you’re a fan of FC Dallas, surely you’re aware that your team last Friday night beat the Orlando City SC team 2-0 with their goals being scored by D. Texeira and M. Diaz. Now your team is in a three way tie with Seattle and Vancouver each with 32 points and at the top of the rankings for the Western Conference of the MLS.
This season to date the FC Dallas team has a very potent offense and the team is tied for 2nd place with 26 goals for the team with the most goals to date. For their team the leading scorer is F. Castillo who to date has 7 goals and on the playmaking side he has 4 assists to date. They also have excellent goal scorers in B. Perez who has scored 5 goals and M. Diaz with 4 goals to date.
Against DC United the Dallas team will need all the scoring power the can get as in previous games their scoring has been very even. Against DC United the FC Dallas team has 2 wins, 2 losses and 2 ties in their ultimate six games. At their home stadium against United they are with 1 win and 1 tie to date, and in their overall last 5 games at home the Dallas team has 4 wins and 1 tie to remain unbeaten at home.
For the fans of DC United you know your team is the best in the MLS to date having 35 points and at the top of the Eastern Conference of the MLS. But on the road they don’t seem to be the killers that they are on home field. That’s because in their last seven road games they have 1 win 4 losses and 2 ties.
On the other hand their defense ranks as one of the best in the league only allowing opponents to 18 goals to date and on the road the Black and Red as they are called, have been stingy of defense only allowing 1 or fewer goals to their last nine opponents on the road games.
The team has several players that can change a game with C. Rolfe with 3 assists and 6 goals, then J. Arrieta with 5 goals to date and a quality shooter at the nets in T. Kemp. In this game with FC Dallas, the Red and Black will miss F. Espindola who got a red card in the loss to Seattle on the 4th of July 2015 and this could affect the DC United team in a big way, as he is the team playmaker and leads the team with 5 assists to date. Without Espindola expect DC United be tighter in their play on offense. DC United for your information is unbeaten in 4 of the ultimate 5 games with Dallas.
The media experts are predicting that this soccer game will end in a tie with DC United 1 and FC Dallas 1!
