On Saturday night, FC Dallas hosts Colorado Rapids in MLS, as both teams try to put right unconvincing starts to their league campaigns.

Dallas have picked up four points in MLS from their three games so far this season. Last time out, the home side suffered a 1-0 loss at the Columbus Crew. The defeat means that Dallas have won just one of their last seven league matches, having suffered five defeats in the process.

Their MLS games so far this season have been low-scoring, as all three have produced under 2.5 goals.

Dallas have been inconsistent on home soil of late in MLS, winning one, drawing and losing two of their last four league outings. The home sides recent games on home soil have been relatively low scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in five of their last eight home matches in MLS.

Colorado have made a poor start to their MLS campaign, failing to win any of their three matches, while picking just two points. Last time out in the American top-flight, the Rapids drew 1-1 with Sporting KC. The result means that the visitors have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last four league games in MLS.

The Rapids have struggled for victories on the road in MLS of late, having won just once in 11 games on their travels. In fact, the visitors have won just twice in 21 away matches in the league. To make matters worse they have now lost five of their last seven matches on the road.

Colorado’s main problem on their travels of late has been conceding far too many goals. The visitors have now conceded at least two goals in nine of their last 11 away games in MLS.

Neither side has made a great start to the season. However, Forebet predicts that Dallas will make the most of home turf advantage to record a victory in a low scoring encounter.
