Kenneth Vermeer is back at goalkeeper for LAFC, Pablo Sisniega isn’t on the bench, either.
Houston begin with former LAFC striker Christian Ramirez on the bench.
LAFC are coming off a rousing 2-0 win over the LA Galaxy on Sunday, a big result in more way than one for the club, and now they will turn their attention to finishing the season strong and clinching a playoff spot.
In fact, LAFC could book their playoff ticket if they win this game and the Galaxy lose to the Timbers, a game also being played Wednesday. If that happens, they’re in, and they can prepare for the real business of the season.
They’re facing a Dynamo side that has the fewest wins in the Western Conference this season, just four, winning just one of their last 11 league games, and on a four-game winless run at present. It’s the first season under Tab Ramos, they recently sold their attacking star Alberth Elis to a Portuguese club, and they are in danger of their season being a lost cause. However, they remain just three points out of a playoff spot themselves, so they’ll be up for this one.
Can LAFC keep the momentum going or will they be pegged back by a feisty Houston side? Should be a fascinating match.
Our sportsbook friends are having a tech outage as of publication, but LAFC are big favorites coming into this one, as you would expect.
How to Watch:
Wednesday’s match between LAFC and the Dynamo will be televised locally on YouTube TV and Estrella TV, and streamed in the rest of the country on ESPN+. The broadcast is scheduled to start at 7:30 pm PT with kickoff to follow.
