The Houston Dynamo and FC Dallas face off in an MLS regular season showdown face off at the BBVA Compass Stadium. The last game between these two teams was a little less than a year ago with FC Dallas coming away with a 5-1 victory.
The Houston Dynamo can’t be happy with the way they are playing right now and they need to turn around the season quickly. The Dynamo still don’t have a win yet this season, and there wasn’t any success inside the bubble during the group stage. During the group stage the Dynamo came away with two draws and a loss. In the first game, the Dynamo were able to score three runs, but after that offense really went cold. In each of the next two games the offense could only manage one goal in each of the games and going forward the offense is going to need to be better. IN the last game against the LA Galaxy Houston only had 36 percent of the possession and going forward if they want to have success they need to have more of the possession.
On the other side of this matchup is FC Dallas who dealt with a COVID outbreak so they didn’t play any games inside the bubble but they have played a couple of games since that point, but haven’t found a whole lot of success. Since the outbreak, FC Dallas has played back to back games against Nashville and they really struggled in the last couple of games. Two games ago against Nashville they had 65 percent of the possession, but they couldn't do enough to come away with the victory. In the last game against Nashville, FC Dallas once again had the advantage with possession, but they could only manage one shot on goal and that led to the loss.
FC Dallas looked terrible in each game against a Nashville team that isn’t great and that is bad news heading into this game. Look for the Houston Dynamo to get the first goal and that will be enough to come away with a win.
