Houston Dynamo vs Portland Timbers
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Thursday, 16th May 2019
Kick-off at 01.30 UK/ 02.30 CET
Venue: BBVA Compass Stadium (Houston).
Houston could merrily dance towards the second spot in the table, as the team has already the fourth position in possession, with three games in hand. The team needs just three points from the next three fixtures to lay their hands on the runner-up place.
The added home advantage will hugely come into play, as the squad boasts of one of the best home records in the conference.
Only one team in the Western Conference has scored fewer goals than Portland and that too, just by one. Timbers have managed to post points on an average of one per tie. With one of the best home sides hosting them this Thursday, fans do not dwell on much hope.

Houston Dynamo vs Portland Timbers Prediction
Houston won the last five home ties in a row and scored two or more goals in all of them. Going on, the team managed to find the back of the net in 26 of their last 28 home fixtures. In addition, Portland was winless in 13 of their last 18 games, and importantly, lost six of their last nine fixtures. The team also conceded two or more goals in six of their last ten match-ups.
On the road, the team was winless in an astonishing 20 of their last 26 away ties. Also do take into account that, in h2h ties, only twice have an away side registered a win, and on both times, it was Houston.
By the looks of things, we should see Houston registering a comfortable win.
