This is the only league meeting between the clubs this season.
It's a rematch of MLS Cup 2011, when Landon Donovan's goal gave the Galaxy a 1-0 victory at The Home Depot Center and the third league crown in club history.
Of the last seven MLS Cup Finals, the Galaxy or Dynamo have played in five - the Galaxy in 2005, 2009 and 2011, and the Dynamo in 2006, 2007 and 2011.
The Dynamo haven't defeated LA at The Home Depot Center since 2007. The Galaxy have won five meetings in a row in Carson, including MLS Cup 2011 and the 2009 Western Conference Championship.
Houston's league win last year in the regular season finale snapped a five-game winless run vs. LA.
