The story so far for the visiting team, who have the most conceded goals (9) away in Major League Soccer, on their Major League Soccer travels is 0 wins, 1 draw and 3 defeats. Houston has lost their two previous away games and are eager to kill a negative trend in its infancy.

It might be tough going out on the road again for Houston Dynamo, facing their second straight away game. Especially as the previous game, ended with a defeat 2-3 versus Sporting KC (placed 2nd). Attacker Fafà Picault got a player rating of 7.84 in the game. "Man of the match" Picault hit four key passes and dribled passed the opponent 4 of 5 times.

That result followed a home victory 2-1 versus Vancouver Whitecaps.

A quick return to home after this game, as Houston are hosting Portland Timbers in the Major League Soccer only four days away.

Houston Dynamo have a decent goal production going in their away games, although not fantastic. In 4 league away games 5 goals have been scored. The Houston manager T. Ramos has some worries about the defense as 9 goals have been conceded in these travels.
