Our football match prediction:
Following a 5-2 win over Minnesota United New England played out a 1-1 draw with Portland Timbers at Gillete Stadiun. Juan Agudelo scored a brace for Jay Heaps’ charges in the triumph over the newcomers, but he failed to impress in the draw against Timbers. New England aim to return to winning ways in MLS, but Saturday’s football game against Houston Dynamo will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. Houston outclassed New York Red Bulls (4-1) at the weekend, with the team managing to keep their 100% record at home intact, but it has to be noted that they suffered a 4-2 loss to Portland Timbers in their first away game of the season. The Dynamo obviously produce much better performances at home than on the travels and that is the main reason why we predict that they will not pick up all three points from the game.

Houston Dynamo are an American professional soccer club owned by Jake Silverstein, Gabriel Brener, Ben Guull and Oscar De La Hoya, who is considered one of the greatest boxers of all time. BBVA Compass Stadium is Dynamo’s home ground and the capacity of the venue is 22.039.

It has to be noted that Houston finished the 2011 and the 2012 seasons as runners-up. In 2008 the Dynamo made it to the North American SuperLiga final, but this time out their old rivals New England Revolution proved to be a big catch for the BBVA Compass Stadium outfit.

The colours of the club are orange, black and white.
