The Houston Dynamo look for a win after winning just two of their last six matches. The Houston Dynamo have scored 24 goals in 20 matches and have three goals in their last three matches. Will Bruin leads Houston with eight goals, Brad Davis has four assists and Giles Barnes has 50 shot attempts. Defensively, the Houston Dynamo have pitched four shutouts and allowed two or more goals in six matches. Tyler Deric have come away with 49 saves and has allowed two goals in his last two starts. The Houston Dynamo have come away with points in three of their last five home matches and are 2-1-2 overall during that span.
Los Angeles beat Houston in the most recent match back in May, and the match back in March was a draw. These teams have been pretty even against one another when playing one another, resulting in a 2-2-1 record in the last five meetings.
The LA Galaxy have outplayed Houston in both of the matches this season and is in by far better form overall, winning matches left and right as of late. I’m siding with the road team to remain hot.
