The Dynamo haven't defeated New York since a 1-0 win May 31, 2008. The Red Bulls have won three of the nine league and MLS Cup meetings since, with six draws (including the last three meetings).
The teams have played to draws in their last three league meetings in Houston. But the Red Bulls will close out their Robertson Stadium history having never a regular-season game there (0-2-4) - though they did win the second leg of their Eastern Conference Semifinal Series in 2008.
The Dynamo have never won at New York, with three wins and four draws in seven league and MLS Cup meetings all-time.
Coaches record: Hans Backe v HOU: P4 W1 L0 D3 ... Dominic Kinnear vs. NY: P17 W5 L4 D8
