  DID YOU KNOW?
  • Of the last seven MLS Cup finals, the Galaxy or Dynamo have played in five - the Galaxy in 2005, 2009 and 2011, and the Dynamo in 2006, 2007 and 2011, with the clubs meeting at last year’s championship, which resulted in a 1-0 LA win.
  • Luiz Camargo scored his first goal since coming to MLS to give the Dynamo a 2-2 draw in New England last Saturday, extending his team's unbeaten streak to three games.
  • It has now been six games - over a month - since defending double winner Los Angeles has recorded an MLS victory. That's LA's longest winless run since the club's dismal 2008 campaign, the last time the Galaxy missed the playoffs.
  • Los Angeles midfielder Hector Jimenez will miss this game with a suspension.
  • Houston has yet to lose a game, or even concede a goal, at the new BBVA Compass Stadium.
