Sporting Kansas City returns to the house of horrors known as BBVA Compass Stadium to take on rival Houston Dynamo in a clash of Eastern Conference powers.
Today’s MLS schedule features two games, including the weekend’s most anticipated clash, between Sporting KC and the Dynamo. Sporting enters off a heart-wrenching, last-minute loss to the Seattle Sounders, while the Dynamo come in off consecutive victories against the Los Angeles Galaxy and D.C. United.
Today’s other MLS match sees the Portland Timbers return home to Jeld-Wen Field to take on Chivas USA. The Timbers enter the match as heavy favorites, on the strength of an eight-match unbeaten streak. Chivas USA takes the field without suspended star goalkeeper Dan Kennedy and rookie Carlos Alvarez.
