Next Thursday at 3:30am GMT, on matchday 40 of the Major League Soccer, we will see Houston play Galaxy at BBVA Compass Stadium.

Visitors Galaxy, will be keen to maintain or improve their League position, (sixth), when they face eleventh placed Houston.

Houston Dynamo’s Major League Soccer season, has so far seen them gain 30 points, going into this game

Houston will take a huge positive from their recent 2-1 win against Seattle Sounders at BBVA Compass Stadium.

Houston have now lost eight of their last 14 games, a worrying statistic that has to be addressed by Manager Davy Arnaud. With eleventh, they currently sit 30 points in the League having won six fixtures, drawn 12 fixtures, and lost 12 matches.

When Houston host Galaxy, they will do so on the back of six victories and six darts on their own ground.

Victory for Houston Dynamo would take their points tally to 33 so far this season.

It’s 42 points so far for LA Galaxy this season, going into this match

Galaxy will be buoyant, following a 2-1 home win against Portland Timbers in their last fixture.

Galaxy’s success this season will ultimately depend on their ability to break the habit of not winning, as they failed to secure a win in nine of their last 10 games. Their position is sixth in the League, and they have 42 points having won 12 meetings, drawn six fixtures, and lost 11 matches.

Galaxy’s away record is remarkable and poses a significant threat to Houston. In the 14 games they’ve played on the road this season, they have so far won four games, drawn three meetings, and lost seven games.

A victory for LA Galaxy would put them on 45 points.
