The Houston Dynamo will be looking to put an end to a long slide when they meet the New York Red Bulls for a second time this season on the Fourth of July at BBVA Compass Stadium. The Dynamo have lost a club-record five games in a row – now having gone nearly seven hours without a goal – following their 3-0 loss at Montréal last weekend. The Red Bulls, who hit the road following a 2-2 draw with Toronto FC last Friday, defeated the Dynamo 4-0 earlier this season at Red Bull Arena.
