This Sunday sees Houston go head to head with Seattle at BBVA Compass Stadium – Kick-off 3:30am GMT.

Leaders Seattle are currently 11·places higher than their rivals Houston, when the two sides meet, they will sit in first and twelfth positions respectively.

Houston Dynamo’s campaign so far has seen them accrue 27 points this season

Houston will be eager to return to some kind of winning form, having lost their last game to Sporting Kansas City, which itself followed a draw to Vancouver Whitecaps, this fixture could be the opportunity.

With no win in 18 of their last 20 meetings now for Houston, there is minimal fear for opposition teams that face them. With twelfth, they currently sit 27 points in the League having won five meetings, drawn 12 matches, and lost 12 fixtures.

Houston have won five meetings, drawn six games, and lost three fixtures of their 14 League matches at home this season.

A win in this fixture would take Houston Dynamo’s points to 30 in the League.

Maintaining their position as League leaders will be Seattle Sounders’ primary goal going into this match

With Seattle having secured all three points on their two previous outings, Brian Schmetzer’s men will doubtless be looking to retain their run after this fixture.

League leaders Seattle keep finding ways to win, having secured eight victories in their last 10 matches is astonishing this season. They currently sit in first place, top of the League, having accrued 57 points points so far this season having won 16 meetings, drawn six games, and lost five games.

Seattle will travel to Houston with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with nine victories and two draws.

A victory for Seattle Sounders would be a huge boost, giving them the chance to stay on top of the table and put additional pressure to their closest rivals.
