Game Thread: Dynamo vs. DC United, 2012 MLS Playoffs - Eastern Conference Final, 2nd Leg

It's 3-1 Dynamo. 90 minutes stand between Houston and a second straight trip to the MLS Cup Final. Can they take care of business? Join in and find out!

Your match referee is Baldomero Toledo...hold on to your butts.

In an attempt to think positive, DC United has to deal with Toledo too. So there's that.

Several big questions for Ben Olsen and United on the injury front. Chris Pontius, Marcelo Saragosa, Brandon McDonald are all questionable and considering all three had to leave the first leg at various points, it will be interesting to see if Olsen risk them and having to make unplanned subs again. Dwayne De Rosario is listed as probable and ha been training. Andy Najar is again suspended.

Adam Moffat is the only player definitely out for the Dynamo. Rico and Calen Carr are questionable, while Jermaine Taylor is probable.

Houston Dynamo starting lineup (4-4-2): Tally Hall; Kofi Sarkodie, Bobby Boswell, Jermaine Taylor, Corey Ashe; Adam Moffat, Rico Clark, Boniek Garcia, Brad Davis; Will Bruin, Macoumba Kandji.

Bench: Deric, Ching, Weaver, Barnes, Creavalle, Hainault, Camargo.

DC United starting lineup (4-4-2): Bill Hamid; Robbie Russell, Dejan Jaković, Emiliano Dudar, Chris Korb; Branko Bošković, Marcelo Saragosa, Perry Kitchen, Nick DeLeon; Maicon Santos, Lionard Pajoy.

Bench: Willis, McDonald, Woolard, Augusto, De Rosario, King, Salihi.
