Having met in back-to-back years in MLS Cup, the Houston Dynamo and LA Galaxy renew their rivalry when the clubs face off Saturday evening at BBVA Compass Stadium. The Dynamo come into the game after their modest two-game winning streak was put to an abrupt end in a 5-2 home loss to Real Salt Lake last weekend. The Galaxy haven't won in their last three games, coming off a last-gasp 1-1 draw at the Portland Timbers last Sunday.
