Wrong! There is plenty of football to whet your appetite until the Premier League returns and Footie5 continues with the chance to win some serious cash.
England are in Nations League action, the Lionesses and Scotland will star in the Women’s World Cup in June. Elsewhere, familiar faces will grace the African Cup of Nations , while Major League Soccer is in full swing over in the States.
Footie5 is going Stateside and we’re asking you to predict the scores in five games every week for the chance to bag £25,000. The likes of Wayne Rooney , Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Bradley Wright-Phillips can be seen live on Sky Sports.
As always, we like to lend a hand with your predictions. Every week, we will have tips on each game to give you a boost in the quest to claim the £25,000 jackpot. This week, here is an insight from our MLS expert at The Pools.
Philadelphia Union 2-1 Seattle Sounders
Union are flying high in the Eastern Conference winning their previous five home games, scoring 14 and conceding just two. Seattle don’t lose many, but are coming off the back of a midweek home match and this huge 2800-mile journey.
Look out for one of the most iconic stadiums in the MLS that includes a bridge spanning the Delaware River ( Google : Talen Energy Stadium)
Minnesota United 2-0 Columbus Crew
Minnesota have to turn their home draws into victories if they want to reach their first ever MLS Play-off berth. Columbus struggle away from home and will be looking to new Man City goalkeeper, Zack Steffen, to help get them a result.
Look out for Robinho and Federico Higuain, the older brother of Gonzalo, pulling the strings for Columbus.
Sporting KC 3-1 Vancouver Whitecaps
Despite winning the Western Conference last year, Sporting KC have been slow off the mark this time around. Vancouver have battled back from a dreadful start to the season, but can’t be trusted on the road. Back Kansas to blow Vancouver away here.
Look out for ex-Dundee United and Derby County wide man Johnny Russell who has found a new lease of life since joining Sporting Kansas City.
Houston Dynamo 2-2 DC United
Both sides have enjoyed strong starts to the season and looked nailed on to be involved in the post-season play offs. Houston are strong at home, but DC United and Rooney are capable of claiming a point on the road.
FC Dallas 1-1 LAFC
LAFC have blazed a trail in the Western Conference and are on course to re-write the MLS record books (including most goals, most points and best goal difference). They are dubbed the “MLS Man City” but face a Dallas side who are strong on home turf.
Look out for Carlos Vela , the ex-Arsenal striker starring for LAFC who leads the race for the MLS Golden Boot.
