DID YOU KNOW?
  • These teams drew 1-1 twice last year.
  • Neither team played last week. The Fire last played April 1 (2-0 loss to Colorado). The Dynamo hasn't seen action since March 23 (2-0 loss to Seattle).
  • Cory Gibbs will miss up to six months after knee surgery. The gap he leaves in central defense and as a leader will likely mean Arne Friedrich will play his first game in nine months.
  • Colin Clark and Adam Moffat will miss this game through suspension. That, combined with an injury to Brad Davis, means Dominic Kinnear will need to reshuffle his midfield.
  • Houston is in the middle of a seven-game road trip while its new stadium, BBVA Compass Stadium, is being built. Thus far the Dynamo have gone 2-1-0.
