Preview

A pair of clubs going in opposite directions in recent weeks, the Houston Dynamo and D.C. United meet for a second time this season when the clubs face off Sunday evening at BBVA Compass Stadium. The Dynamo saw their winless run stretched to eight games in their last league contest, a 2-2 home draw with Toronto FC. United have won four games on the trot following their 3-0 defeat of Toronto at RFK Stadium at midweek. United defeated the Dynamo 2-0 earlier this season in Washington, but have never won in Houston in club history.
