Houston Dynamo (11-9-13, 46 pts.) vs. LA Galaxy (19-4-10, 67 pts.)
Robertson Stadium - Houston, TX - 6:00pm CT
The regular season finale. The final regular season game (potentially last Dynamo game ever) played at Robertson Stadium. A chance to leapfrog the Columbus Crew and the Philadelphia Union and take over 2nd place in the Eastern Conference, bypassing the wildcard round. Yeah, this is kind of a big game.
Here's the playoff scenarios:
Dynamo win: Houston finishes 2nd place in East, plays the Union in a dual-leg tie with the second match in Houston.
Dynamo draw: Houston plays at Colorado in a wildcard match.
Dynamo loss: Houston plays at FC Dallas in a wildcard match.
Simple as that.
