The Gold Cup in the US is not over yet and the Copa America in the south is far from over. Nevertheless, only a few international players from the MLS with their country teams on the road. The game mode in Major League Soccer is therefore slowly normalizing again. We can not talk about a final spurt for the playoffs yet, but some clubs have done just over half the regular season. It’s time to position yourself in the table so you can continue to race for the title. The FC Dallas and Washington DC United are on a very good way and are fully on course. In the night from Thursday to Friday, both teams meet in direct duel.
Dallas vs Washington Football Betting Tips
The Texans are currently in fourth place in the Western Conference. However, they sometimes have up to three games more in the account than the competition. The lead in eighth place is only three points. This is not a rest cushion, especially since many other clubs can refill in pending games. DC United is much better. In the Eastern Conference, the captains have brought 31 points from 19 games and are thus ranked second. From the number of matches, it is a bit more balanced in the East, so a lead of ten points in eighth position is already somewhat reassuring. However, before the kick-off between Dallas and Washington DC, the experts are more likely to predict the home side will win. But DC United has proven to be a tough nut to crack in the last few weeks. Therefore, we can not fully share this initial assessment because we assume that the hosts could get into trouble. Therefore, in the duel between Dallas and Washington DC, we would not rule out a bet on United’s point win. Both need points, the Texans even more urgent to get in position for the playoffs.
Dallas – Statistics & Current Form
Injuries and stops for internationals have cost FC Dallas the whereabouts of the US Open Cup. Against the division club New Mexico United had to be defeated at home. But at least in the MLS in the last few weeks it is not bad at all. In the last five games, there was only one defeat. Nevertheless, it is really close in the race for participation in the playoffs. Two years ago, Dallas was defeated on the final day of the regular season from the playoffs. That should not happen again to the team of Luchi Gonzalez this year. Therefore, every point is important, but above all victories must be retracted. To win on Independence Day against Washington, that’s all there is to it. The bookmakers offer in the game between Dallas and Washington DC at least lower odds on a home victory of the Texans. This is mainly due to the home strength of the FCD. In the last ten home games in the MLS, there was only one defeat. That should be a source of encouragement for the encounter on the night of Friday.
The last game at the Portland Timbers could not be used for that though. The Texans had big problems, especially in the central midfield. The game shares were balanced but overall. Portland seemed to have matured last Sunday and was able to win by a goal just before half time 1-0. The break until the next game was a bit shorter than the upcoming opponent from the capital.
“We need to focus on what’s important, because every game matters, whether it’s three days between games or whether we have to prepare for the week.” – Paxton Pomykal
But that must not be an excuse, as playmaker Paxton Pomykal makes clear. In the end it is only important to know which performance can be called up on the course. In that respect, one may at least be cautiously optimistic that things will get better. Bryan Acosta, who was well below the odds at the Gold Cup with Honduras, has returned to the squad and will play from the start following his substitution in Portland. This also applies to left wing Santiago Mosquera, who is fully recovered and should ensure speed on the outer lane. Only Reggie Cannon, who stays with the United States in the Gold Cup, will be missing.
Expected formation of Dallas:
↪ J. Gonzalez – Hollingshead, Hedges, Ziegler, Bressan – Acosta, Servania – Mosquera, Pomykal, Badji – Ferreira
↪ Coach: L. Gonzalez

Washington DC – Statistics & Current Form
Washington DC United is one of the most successful clubs in Major League Soccer. Numerous national and international titles are now on the letterhead. However, two years ago they missed the playoffs and in the last season United failed already in the knockout round. Reason enough to step up with an international superstar to return to the road to success. Wayne Rooney has been in the MLS for over a year now and by now you can say that the Englishman has hit hard. With him, DC United is apparently a title candidate this season. He has scored four goals in the last six games and ranks third in the MLS top scorer list. Although the Elf of Ben Olsen in the US Open Cup already eliminated, but in Major League Soccer there has been no defeat for five games and only one failure in the last nine matches. However, United has had to split the points in four out of the last five matches. That almost sounds as if predicting a tie would be a real option in the encounter between Dallas and Washington DC.
Washington also did not make it past a draw last weekend, which was very happy after the game started. The Canadians from Toronto were in the US capital and went after 20 minutes 1-0 in the lead. DC United was a slightly better team, but was not compelling enough in the final. In the 90th minute but should still follow the redemption.
“We want to be as successful as possible, what happens then we will see.” – Wayne Rooney
Wayne Rooney converted a penalty to a 1-1 final score. In the meantime, the Englishman is an absolute crowd pleaser, who might also be able to switch to management in Washington in the future. At the moment, he prefers to deal with the events on the pitch and so he strives with his team for the greatest possible success. In Dallas, DC United will be close to full. Only the Jamaican Oniel Fisher will remain unavailable after his knee surgery. Otherwise, Ben Olsen is spoiled for choice in his line-up in Dallas.
Expected lineup of Washington DC:
↪ Hamid – McCann, Pear Tree, Brillant, Jara – Rodriguez, Canouse, Stieber, Segura – Acosta, Rooney
↪ Coach: Olsen

Dallas vs Washington DC Soccer Betting Tips and Predictions Explained
FC Dallas must be careful not to lose the place in the playoffs this season. The home strength is currently the last bargaining chip, because in the last ten games in the MLS at the Toyota Stadium conceded only one defeat. Overall, it could be a bit better. Maybe you can claim that from DC United as well, even though the statistics are alright. For five games there was no defeat in the MLS and ever the capital club conceded in the past nine games only one bankruptcy. But there is plenty of draw, so in the match between Dalls and Washington DC a tip on a draw seems quite plausible.
