Galaxy to host Dynamo in Sunday night match-up

Posted on 28 June 2009 by iyeo

Opposites will attract at the Home Depot Center on Sunday night.

The Los Angeles Galaxy and the Houston Dynamo get together for the first time this season. Both teams come in with intentions to win, but for different reasons. The Dynamo will look to continue its amazing run of form while the Galaxy will look to break out of a mini-slump.

The Dynamo have been the hottest team in MLS. Houston is unbeaten in its last 11 matches, a streak that has spanned three months. To put it in perspective, The Dynamo haven’t lost since April 4, when it dropped a 1-0 decision to DC United. Since then, Houston has gone 8-0-3, including a stretch of five straight wins. Houston played to a 1-1 draw in its recent match against visiting Real Salt Lake on June 20. The Dynamo’s surge has allowed them to overtake Chivas USA for first place in the Western Conference.

The Galaxy on the other hand need this match to get its season back on track. The Galaxy actually had its own unbeaten streak, which spanned ten matches, but only two of those matches saw the Galaxy come out with three points. Los Angeles saw its unbeaten streak come to an end against RSL on June 13 and suffered another loss a week later against the an Jose Earthquakes 2-1.
