DC United vs Houston Dynamo Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

DC United suffered a fourth consecutive league defeat, as the team suffered a 4-3 loss against Seattle Sounders. Incredibly, DC United took a three goal lead through Deshorn Brown, Ian Harkes, and Lloyd Sam. Seattle, though, came up with an incredible second-half comeback through Will Bruin, Brad Evans, Gustave Svensson, and Cristian Roldan. Nicolas Lodeiro was sent off late in the game. Houston Dynamo failure to convert their chances saw them only manage a goalless draw with Minnesota United. The opening 45 minutes saw Houston create splendid chances, but lackluster finishing let the team down. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

DC United will be glad to return to the RFK stadium where they are unbeaten in the last two games. They welcome a Houston Dynamo team which happens to possess one of the worst away records this season. Houston’s overall form has been good with just one defeat in the last five, but they have also managed just one win in this run. The last two meetings between the two teams have finished as a draw. There is a higher probability for more of the same, as Houston struggle on the road with no wins in 10. I would back a draw.

Houston Dynamo struggle to score goals on the road, while DC United have averaged less than a goal per game so far this season. The last two meetings between the two teams have produced under 2.5 goals. I would back this game to also encounter a similar fate.

DC United Preview

After struggling to create and score goals for much of the season, DC United managed to come up with three goals against Seattle Sounders. Yet, the poor defence let the team down as they succumbed to yet another defeat in the league. United have now suffered the highest number of defeats (12) in the league this season, and they share the record with Real Salt Lake. DC United, though, top of the charts for the fewest goals (17) scored in the 2017 MLS season. Luciano Acosta continues to remain as the top scorer at the club but with only four league goals.

Patrick Mullins (knee) is the only player unavailable for DC United.

Houston Dynamo Preview

Houston Dynamo’s incredible attacking strength once again failed to produce the goods in an away match, as the club’s wait for a first away win of the season continues. Only New England Revolution and Houston Dynamo have not been able to achieve an away win even after 10 attempts this season. The blank against Minnesota United means that Houston have scored only six goals in 10 away games. The record is in complete contrast to a return of 28 goals from their 10 home games. Erick Torres is the top scorer for Houston Dynamo so far, and he has 12 league goals.

Houston Dynamo Team News

George Malki (cruciate ligament) and Eric Alexander (ligament) are the absentees for Houston Dynamo due to injuries.
