Full Time: Houston 1, LAFC 3. The black-and-gold dig deep and pull out a road win that was not quite expected. Great way to end the week. Thanks for following, we’ll have more up on this game soon.
88th minute: GOOOOOOOOL LAFC! Josh Perez sets up substitute Diego Rossi, who finishes with a nice floater. Black-and-gold up 3-1, looks like they’ll see this win out.
49th minute: DO YOU BELIEVE? GOOOOOOOL LAFC! Diomande with his second after a bit of opportunistic buildup from Josh Perez, Lee Nguyen and Dio. The rotated road team has the lead here!
45+2nd minute: GOOOOOOOOOOL LAFC! Adama Diomande with the floating header just before the break to put LAFC on level footing. Fantastic way to end the opening 45 minutes!
3rd minute: Goal Houston. Romell Quioto torches LAFC with a nifty move before finishing over Tyler Miller’s shoulder. Woof, rough start.
LAFC make some real changes, but also...don’t put out a fully reserve side? Looks like Bob Bradley is trying to go for this one.
The Dynamo are unsurprisingly playing a full-strength side:
Bob Bradley will be faced with the tough task of maintaining a balance between resting players and fielding a competitive starting XI.
Houston Dynamo have had an interesting season thus far to say the least. Wilmer Cabrera’s squad is currently 7th in the Western Conference with 27 points. After a hot start to the season, the Dynamo have cooled off, losing five of their last seven.
Although the club has not performed up to its potential, forward Alberth Elis has been more than solid, netting seven goals and giving out six assists thus far this season.
Bookmakers currently favor the Houston Dynamo at (+130), while listing LAFC as slight road underdogs (+170). The odds for a draw are currently listed at (+275) (Via Westgate Vegas).
