The Dynamos meet Fire at Houston’s BBVA Compass Stadium on July 3. Catch real time updates on your favorite Major League Soccer 2012 Match.
Houston Dynamo Preview
After a 2-1 victory against the Philadelphia Union on the 30th of June, Houston Dynamo is back for another match-up, this time against the Chicago Fire. The last match that the Dynamos had against Chicago was in April 15 of 2012 where the game ended in a draw of 1-1. Currently, Houston ranks at number five in the Eastern Conference with 6 wins 5 loses and 5 draws with a total of 23 points. Oddly enough they rank just below Chicago Fire who has two more winning games ahead of Union but with the same amount of defeats. The venue will be Houston’s home turf and the team has not lost a game at home this season.
Houston, with a probable 4-4-2 line-up however, needs to strengthen their attack against Chicago’s strong defense. Chicago has 4 more points ahead of Houston and has won three games in a row. Plus Chicago’s unpredictability as a team will definitely make it hard for the Dynamo.
Chicago Fire Preview
Chicago Fire has been untouchable for the previous three games in a row including one with the Eastern Conference top team, New York Red Bulls where they easily achieved a 3-1 victory. During their last match-up, Chicagomanaged a 1-0 road victory at Sporting Kansas City on last Friday when Marco Pappa grabbed the game's only goal, and Sean Johnson made several outstanding saves to hold the lead.
Chicago needs to maintain their defense against Houston and tone up their attack. Things are looking more favourable on Chicago’s side but both teams seem to be at equal considering their five previous matches head to head with other each team has one win and three draws.
Houston Dynamo vs Chicago Fire Predictions: Draw 1-1
As mentioned above, both teams have met five times in the past Chicago has won once, Houston once, and the rest are draws. This keeps both teams at equal pace. Although Chicago is one rank higher, only four points and two games are the differential. This match-up seems even in the eyes of many.
