The Houston Dynamo have won two of their last five matches. They lost their last match against Toronto FC 2-0 on the road. They are undefeated at home this season, earning four wins and one draw.
Erick ‘Cubo’ Torres is the top goal-scorer in MLS right now, with seven goals in eight games, but was shut out against Toronto FC this past weekend. Albert Elis also has two goals in the team’s last five matches.
The defense has been on and off all season. The team has earned just one shutout (against San Jose). Toronto FC dominated the Dynamo’s defense. Minnesota United was able to come back from 2-0 to earn a 2-2 draw, and the Portland Timbers were able to come back from being down 2-1 to win the match 4-2 earlier in the season.
Orlando City moved up to the #2 slot in the MLS Power Rankings this week, while the Houston Dynamo sit at #11. The Dynamo have a stellar record at home, but have been unable to perform on the road.
Orlando City has only played Houston twice, winning 1-0 in 2015 (Orlando City’s first MLS victory) and they played to a scoreless draw in 2016.
