The MLS continues this weekend with two teams in the Western Conference playing each other. This game will be between the home team, the Seattle Sounders, and the away team, FC Dallas. Both teams have some wonderful players and play some exciting soccer so we should expect an interesting contest.
FC Dallas had an embarrassing loss last weekend as they were beaten 3-1 by the San Jose Earthquake at home. As the top team in the Western Conference, this was not acceptable and the team will need to bounce back quickly if they wish to remain in 1st place. FC Dallas are a really strong team and the loss last weekend was only their 4th loss of the season. I am expecting the team from Texas to bounce back strong in this fixture.
On the other side of the coin, the Seattle Sounders will hope to give FC Dallas their second loss in a row. The home side is currently in 8th spot in the Western Conference but a few wins can quickly move them up into the top half of the ladder. The Seattle Sounders are in really good form and they have now won 4 games in a row. This run has included a win over NYCFC which was very impressive. If this form continues, FC Dallas might be challenged greatly in this fixture.
While FC Dallas is an incredible side, I don’t think they will be able to win this match. The Seattle Sounders are in great form and have an amazing home record so I don’t think the visitors will be able to get all three points. That being said, I don’t think FC Dallas will lose two games in a row so I am going to predict that this game ends as a draw. Judging by the form of the two teams, this is a fair result.
