MLS Preview: Montreal Impact - Houston Dynamo

USA Today

Two underachieving Eastern Conference sides with a fiery history clash in a rare Sunday night match at Saputo Stadium.

In the three most recent meetings between the Montreal Impact and the Houston Dynamo, it's been extremely one-sided. Houston has won all three matches, keeping the Impact off the board while piling up five total goals.

However, those games all took place at BBVA Compass Stadium in south Texas, while Sunday's affair plays out at Stade Saputo. The Impact have been dominant over Houston within the friendly confines of their home stadium, including a pair of shutout wins last summer over the orange-clad Texans.

While contests between these teams are always heated affairs, neither side has looked particularly impressive against the rest of the league. Dead last Montreal (2-7-5) sits six points back of the Dynamo (5-9-2), with both sides desperate for points in order to make up ground on the higher-ranked teams in the East.

It gets even tougher for Houston, which will still be without Brad Davis and Boneik Garcia due to World Cup action. The Impact are looking to integrate a few newer players, as well as the returning Marco Di Vaio, Justin Mapp and Felipe — all of whom missed out on Wednesday's 0-0 draw at Vancouver.
