It’s 29 points so far for Houston Dynamo this season, going into this game
With two wins in a row under his belt, Kenny Bundy takes his Houston team into this game full of confidence, and hopeful of another successive victory.
Also, Houston have now lost 13 of their last 20 matches, a worrying statistic that has to be addressed by Manager Kenny Bundy. Their position is fourteenth in the League and they have 29 points, that is, 0W, 0L and 0D.
Playing at home, Houston have won five meetings, drawn four meetings, and lost five games.
A victory for Houston Dynamo would put them on 32 points.
Sporting Kansas City have 30 points to their name, going into this tie
With the memory of their last match, doubtless on their minds, a (2-2) draw against LA Galaxy, Kansas will be keen to improve on that result in this game.
Also, Peter Vermes knows that a run of eight losses in 15 games for his Kansas side, is going to be a tough run of form to change. However that is exactly what he must try to deliver. With 30 points (0W, 0L and 0D), they are established in thirteenth position in the League.
It must be a worrying prospect for Kansas to go back on the road, with a bud run of away performances under their belt this season. So far they have only secured two wins, four draws, and nine losses to the home team.
Winning this fixture will see Sporting Kansas City on 33 points.
