Seattle Sounders vs Houston Dynamo
Major League Soccer
Date: Tuesday, 9th October 2018
Kick-off at 3:30 UK/ 4:30 CET
Venue: CenturyLink Field (Seattle).
Seattle Sounders are going to host Houston Dynamo in their battle for the playoff spot in the Major League Soccer.
The hosts are sitting on the 5th spot of the Western conference and they are three points ahead of their challengers. They managed to break their streak of two defeats with a win over Colorado Rapids in the latest round.
Seattle have been performing pretty well in the back as they’ve conceded 31 goals so far, while Brian Schmetzer side has been good in the front.
The Sounders have improved their home performances lately as they’ve celebrated four times in the last five matches in front of their crowd.
Houston Dynamo don’t have any chance to reach the playoffs zone as they are sitting on the 10th place being 11 points away from the top six. However, they managed to raise their form lately as they picked up seven points from the last three games.
Mauro Manotas and the lads have been one of the most efficient sides in the Western conference, but their bad defending prevented them of being involved in the battle for the knockout stages.
Dynamo’s away performances are very poor as they managed to get back home with a win just once in the season.
Seattle Sounders v Houston Dynamo: Head-to-head
- Sounders have been more successful in their latest head to head matches as they’ve booked three straight victories.
- The hosts also managed to keep the clean sheet in this clash and their matches haven’t been too much efficient.
Seattle Sounders vs Houston Dynamo: Prediction
The hosts are favourites in this one and the potential win from this one would keep them in the top six. Seattle Sounders shouldn’t miss the chance to remain safe in the playoffs zone, so we are expecting a home win in this match.
Although home side is doing very well in the back this season and they haven’t conceded in the last three occasions against their rivals, Houston Dynamo are capable of scoring against any side and in this one the crowd should see goals in both nets.
