Midfielder Boniek Garcia could sit the game but is probable in terms of fit enough to play, leaving Houston with no major injury concerns. Ike Opara is still out hurt for Kansas City while defender Chance Myers and forward Krisztian Nemeth are questionable for the match.
Both clubs on 9 points after 7 games leaves the situation in the Western Conference wide open as 2 points separate 3rd from 9th. Having played 7 games for both clubs, the 3 points could give them one foot in the door of the playoff spots.
Kansas City's loss to LA last weekend snapped a 4 game unbeaten streak. The road team also won both fixtures last season.
Houston and Kansas City met in the playoffs for 3 straight years, Houston winning 2 of the series. The Dynamo have only 1 loss in their last 5, winning 1 and drawing 3 for a total of 6 points in that span. The teams are 3-4-3 all time against each other in Houston.
Prediction: I like Kansas City but I feel Houston will give them a run for their money.
Dynamo 2-2 Sporting
