  DID YOU KNOW?
  • Houston extended its home unbeaten streak to 23 league games with its 2-0 win against New England last weekend, now the second-longest streak in MLS history. The Dynamo have yet to lose an MLS game at BBVA Compass Stadium, and are the last remaining MLS team with an unbeaten record at home.
  • The Dynamo have two home games left as they bid to become the fourth team in MLS history – and third in as many years – to go undefeated over an entire season at home. Real Salt Lake (2010) and the LA Galaxy (2011) did it in the last two seasons; San Jose was the first in 2005.
  • The Impact return to action after a weekend off, their winless streak extended to three games in their last match, a scoreless draw with Sporting KC in Montréal.
  • These teams are meeting for the third time, after high-scoring affairs in their first two clashes. Davy Arnaud and Patrice Bernier each had a goal and an assist in a 4-2 Impact win on June 23 at Stade Saputo. A brace from Mac Kandji led the Dynamo to a 3-0 win in the July 21 return to Houston.
  • Montreal's Collen Warner will miss this match due to suspension through yellow card accumulation.
