Both teams are coming into this game a bit under the radar in the Western Conference this season. The Dynamo (5-1-1) rebounded from their first loss of the season to defeat Columbus Crew SC, 2-0, on goals by Mauro Manotas and Tomas Martinez last week. While FC Dallas (5-2-2) extended an unbeaten streak to three games with a 0-0 draw against the San Jose Earthquakes.
FC Dallas notes:
Last time against Houston. The 2018 Texas Derby saw El Capitan return home to Frisco thanks to a big 4-2 win on the final meeting of the regular season after the two sides had a pair of 1-1 draws earlier in the year.
