The Video Room: Houston Dynamo vs Santos Laguna Leg 2 Pregame

Eddie Robinson, Dominic Kinnear, and Adam Moffat give their thoughts on Wednesday's matchup between the Houston Dynamo and Santos Laguna.

On Wednesday night, the Houston Dynamo will face off in the most anticipated international match in many years. In 2008, the Dynamo made it to the semifinals in the CONCACAF Champions Cup only to be eliminated on the road in Costa Rica by Saprissa. With a result in Mexico, Houston would be back in this year's semifinals of the CONCACAF Champions League.

Last Tuesday, Houston got away with a narrow 1-0 win over Santos in late fashion (89th minute) at BBVA Compass Stadium. They'll take that slim lead to a dangerous Estadio Corona in Torreon, Mexico.

Santos is pretty confident ahead of the match after outscoring their last two MLS opponents 12-3 in CCL play.

Ahead of the match, Jonathan Kaplan talks with Eddie Robinson about the Houston mentality coming into the match. The two discuss whether the Dynamo will sit back and defend for look to score early, and Robinson talks about the key to victory resides in the first 15 minutes.


Dominic Kinnear gives his thoughts about the first match - which he was suspended for. He also gives his thoughts on what to expect from Santos' starting lineup in the return leg.


Finally, Adam Moffat talks about the first leg being a great game, and acknowledges the second leg will be tough.
