The Houston Dynamo and D.C. United are not only both fighting just to make the Eastern Conference playoffs. Both teams have hopes of breaking into the top three in the East in order to avoid having to play in a one-game wild card play-in match. Both teams can help their chances with wins today.
Houston takes on struggling Philadelphia at PPL Park. The Union have struggled to find goals in recent weeks, but they have also been tough enough defensively to garner draws in several recent matches. For Houston, Brad Davis and Oscar Boniek Garcia are keys to their attack and the two midfielders will look to break down a tough Union back line with the help of Will Bruin.
D.C. United is at home today and will look to knock off a Chivas USA side that has faded fast in recent weeks. The Goats have been bleeding goals, but they might get a respite against a D.C. attack that has struggled since the loss of MVP Dwayne DeRosario.
