The Houston Dynamo will play the first of three consecutive away matches against the Vancouver Whitecaps on Wednesday at BC Place Stadium.

Orange Crush moved a point ahead of Vancouver in the Western Conference of Major League Soccer after defeating Austin FC 2-1 in their previous meeting, while the Caps were defeated 3-1 at St Louis City.

It was a fresh venue, but the result was the same as Vancouver lost its third straight away game in this competition over the weekend, leaving them only a point over the playoff line.

Vanni Sartini's men trailed 2-0 at half-time, and they have only one point this season when behind at the break.

Their next four matches in all competitions will take place at BC Place, where the Caps have won four of their previous five games, with their sole home defeat in MLS this year coming in their opener, a 2-1 loss to Real Salt Lake.

Four points out of a possible six against their two state rivals should have the Dynamo feeling considerably better about their MLS standing.

Ben Olsen's side has done the brunt of their damage in the second half this season, with nine of their 13 goals coming in the final 45 minutes, including the game-winning goal against the Verde and Black three minutes before the end.

Houston has only won five regular-season matches on the road in the last three seasons, and they haven't started 2023 any better, with just two points from six away games, one of which came last time out against the Toros (1-1).

Here GOAL brings you everything you need to know about how to watch, including TV channel, streaming details and more.
