Houston Dynamo vs Austin FC prediction, preview, team news and…


Houston Dynamo and Austin FC meet at BBVA Stadium on Sunday, looking to snap their respective two-game losing streaks in Major League Soccer.

This will be the teams’ second encounter this season, with Austin FC coming out on top 3-2 in the reverse fixture in August.

The Houston Dynamo’s poor form continued last Saturday when they were defeated 2-0 at home by the Portland Timbers.

Yimmi Chará and Felipe Mora scored in the first half to give the Timbers their ninth win of the season.

The Houston Dynamo have now gone 16 games without a win, losing eight games and drawing eight games since their last triumph in May.

They are rooted at the bottom of the Western Conference table, level on 19 points with Sunday’s visitors, thanks to their poor play.

Austin, too, struggled to find their footing last time out, losing 2-1 to the Vancouver Whitecaps on the road.

After going behind Sebastián Driussi’s opener, the Whitecaps upped the ante with goals from Erik Godoy and Déiber Caicedo to turn the game around.

This came after a 5-3 loss to FC Dallas on their home field on Monday.

Josh Wolff’s team has now lost five of their previous six games, with the exception of a 3-1 victory over the Portland Timbers.
