📏 Form Guide

FC Dallas LDDWDL

FC Dallas will be looking to improve on their last outing here after the 3-2 MLS losing effort in their last game against Minnesota United.

In that match, FC Dallas had 47% possession and 12 attempts at goal with 2 on target. For FC Dallas, the goalscorers were Pepi (42') and Mosquera (77'). Minnesota United had 19 attempts at goal with 6 on target. Toye (11') and Molino (28', 70') scored for Minnesota United.

Colorado Rapids DLDDDW

Colorado Rapids head into the game following a 0-2 MLS win to beat Real Salt Lake in their previous outing.

For Colorado Rapids, goals were scored by Rubio (3', 10'), Vines (49'), Galván (55') and Bassett (88').

Colorado Rapids have had no problems opening up opposition defences leading up to this encounter, having scored 8 times in their last 6 matches. This doesn’t mask the fact that Rapids can also improve defensively after being scored against in 5 of those same matches. We will have to find out whether or not that trend will be sustained in this game.

👥 Head to head

If we look at their past head to head duels dating back to 28/09/2017, there has been little between the sides with FC Dallas winning 2 of those games, Colorado Rapids 2 and 2 being drawn in normal time.

A combined sum of 15 goals were shared by the two clubs in these games, with 7 from Toros and 8 belonging to Rapids. That’s an average goals per game figure of 2.5.

The last league encounter between the two was MLS match day 40 on 29/09/2019 when it ended Colorado Rapids 3-0 FC Dallas.

ℹ️ Team News: FC Dallas

FC Dallas manager Luchi Gonzalez will be happy not to have any fitness worries to speak of ahead of this game owing to a fully injury-free squad available for selection.

We are thinking that Toros could line up in a 4-2-3-1 system for the game with Kyle Zobeck, Ryan Hollingshead, Reto Ziegler, Matt Hedges, Bryan Reynolds, Brandon Servania, Thiago Santos, Ricardo Pepi, Andrés Ricaurte Vélez, Michael Barrios and Franco Jara.

ℹ️ Team News: Colorado Rapids

Owing to a fully healthy group to pick from, Colorado Rapids boss Robin Fraser has zero fitness concerns at all before this game.

We reckon that Rapids seem most likely to utilise a 4-2-3-1 lineup using William Yarbrough, Keegan Rosenberry, Lalas Abubakar, Danny Wilson, Sam Vines, Jack Price, Kellyn Acosta, Younes Namli, Cole Bassett, Nicolas Mezquida and Diego Rubio.

💡 Prediction

For this match, we think that Colorado Rapids are certainly able to breach the defence of this FC Dallas team, however that probably won’t quite be as many as they’ll concede.

We reckon that it will be both teams to score in a 2-1 winning score for FC Dallas after the 90. Should be an interesting one.
