TFC Prediction League: Round Eight (vs. Houston Dynamo)

The Reds have the wind back in their sails but face a tough opponent at BMO Field on Friday night.

MLS: San Jose Earthquakes at Houston Dynamo Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Game two of Toronto FC’s three-match home stand sees the Reds take on the Houston Dynamo at BMO Field on Friday night.

TFC saw off a Chicago Fire team that looks to have improved significantly on their last-placed finish in the Eastern Conference in 2016 and now face a similar challenge in the Dynamo, who propped up the West. Houston’s offseason additions were not as eyecatching as Chicago’s but having scored 15 goals in seven games thus far, they appear to have fixed the offensive issues that plagued them last season.

The Dynamo’s good start has been built on their home form, however, with Wilmer Cabrera’s side playing five of their seven matches at BBVA Compass Stadium. On their travels, they have suffered 2-0 and 4-2 defeats to the New England Revolution and Portland Timbers respectively.

Mike Whaley remains the clubhouse leader after only missing on the Toronto-Chicago scoreline by a single TFC goal, with his main rival Footy Wolverine Go Blue correctly guessing 3-1 to the Reds to edge a point closer to Mike at the summit. It was also a good weekend for the WTR staff, with yours truly and Mitchell Tierney predicting 3-1.

As always, leave your score prediction in the comments and we’ll do the rest. It’s two points for the correct outcome and one each for predicting the number of goals the two teams will score.
