  DID YOU KNOW?
  • Montreal currently sits in first place in the Eastern Conference with the most points (26) despite having played the fewest matches (13).
  • Houston is fourth in the East, with 22 points from 14 games. A win would see the Dynamo in third, moving ahead of Philadelphia, while winning and scoring four or more goals would catapault them into second place.
  • Montreal hitman Marco Di Vaio leads Major League Soccer in shots on goal (23) and is second in goals scored, with nine.
  • Houston will be missing two of its most impoartant players as they face off in World Cup qualifying. Oscar Boniek Garcia is with Honduras on Tuesday night, and Brad Davis is with the U.S. squad.
  • These teams split their three meetings last year. Montreal won at home 4-2 before the Dynamo took a 3-0 result in Houston. The final meeting, at BBVA Compass stadium, finished 1-1.
