Foes in the MLS Cup Playoffs each of the last three seasons, the Houston Dynamo and Sporting Kansas City renew

their acquaintances Friday evening when the clubs face off at BBVA Compass Stadium. Both clubs come into the game

looking to snap long winless runs. The Dynamo return home off a lost road trip where they were outscored 8-0 in three

defeats, last a 3-0 loss at the Colorado Rapids, while Sporting saw their run without a victory extended to five games in

a 1-0 reversal at D.C. United.
