FC Dallas vs Houston Dynamo: Game thread

Here is your match thread for tonight’s game.

MLS: FC Dallas at Houston Dynamo Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Houston takes lead after failed Lamah penalty...only to have VAR take it away!

And just like that Houston ties it up


Lineups are in

The Texas Derby is here folks! FC Dallas looks to get the best of their main rivals Houston Dynamo tonight as they meet for the first time this season.

Both teams are coming off wins as FC Dallas won last weekend against Chicago, while the Dynamo are fresh off a USOC win on Wednesday over Sporting KC.

FC Dallas notes:

Last season against Houston. The 2017 edition of the Texas Derby ended in three straight draws and the Dynamo came away with El Capitan thanks to away goals. The lone meeting in Houston saw a 1-1 draw.

Quality in goal. Since his first start back in May, Jesse Gonzalez leads MLS in saves (39) and is fifth in save percentage (77.6 percent).

Key player. Carlos Gruezo - We all know Gruezo does the dirty work in the middle of the park for FCD. He’ll need to make sure to come up big in games like this to help relieve the pressure off the back line against a team that likes to press high.
