FC Cincinnati vs Houston Dynamo
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 7 July 2019
Kick-off at 00:30 UK/ 01:30 CET
Venue: Nippert Stadium (Cincinnati).
Houston made their comeback in style, against the Red Bulls. The team was on a terrible stretch of games, with them losing their last three attempts. But tough customer New York had to face a 4-0 scoreline at Dynamo’s home ground.
Right now, the team has matches in hand and could take a spot in the podium if they are able to dole out wins in these fixtures.
Considering that their opponents are Cincinnati, who is easily the worst in the whole of MLS, the prospect becomes more realistic. The squad has posted the least number of goals in the competition, has conceded the most, and lost 13 of their total 18 matches so far.
Their only hope coming into this game might be Dynamo’s faltering away record. Mimicking the hosts’ overall form, Houston has been suffering on the road. Something needs to be done regarding their performances away from home, or else, towards the end of the season, they will have to pay a hefty price for this complacency.

- These two teams are facing each other for the first time.
FC Cincinnati vs Houston Dynamo Prediction
Cincinnati has just one win to their name in the last 16 games and lost nine of their last eleven. Just the last day, they lost 7-1 against Minnesota. At home, the team was winless in eight of their last ten matches and has not yet shown any ability in utilizing their home advantage.
Of all the 24 squads in the MLS, this one takes the medal for the worst, and a brief look at their recent performances would be enough evidence to be convinced of the fact. They lost their last five league fixtures on the trot, and have conceded the most goals in all of the competition. On the other hand, Houston is one of the top squads in the West and will be looking to improve their current form, especially on the road.
It’s true that they are on a bit of a lull, but against this opponent, Dynamo should at least avoid a loss.
Goals-wise, the tie should be a low-scoring one, taking into account the misfortunes of either in recent battles. Cincinnati has scored the least goals in the league and the least home goals as well, while the guests will face a handicap with their away woes.
