HOUSTON (SPORTSRADIO 610) –  Following a dramatic 2-2 draw against LAFC, the Dynamo turn their attention to Minnesota United FC as they look to improve their MLS home unbeaten streak to seven.

On Tuesday, the Dynamo were trailing 2-0 entering stoppage time, but a goal from Mauro Manotas and Philippe Senderos preserved the Dynamo’s home unbeaten streak.  The last time the Dynamo lost at home was a 2-0 loss against New England on March 31.

With his late goal, Mauro Manotas now has nine on the season, and has passed Alberth Elis for the team lead.  Romell Quioto continues to lead the Dynamo in assists with eight.

Minnesota United FC heads to Houston with a win in their last match, beating Toronto 4-3.  Darwin Quintero had a hat trick in the match, which gives him the Loons lead in goals with six.

The win for Minnesota came at home, where they have been good, but on the road, it’s a different story as they have a 1-7-0 road record.  Minnesota United has lost six straight on the road with their last win coming March 10 at Orlando.

Saturday’s match will be the third time the Dynamo and Minnesota United FC meet this season.  The first time was on April 28 in Minnesota when the Loons overcame a one goal deficit to beat the Dynamo 2-1. 

The second meeting was June 18 at BBVA Compass Stadium in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup, which the Dynamo won 1-0 behind a Manotas goal.

Both teams are in the hunt for the Western Conference playoffs.  The Dynamo sit in seventh place on the table, one point behind Vancouver for sixth.  Minnesota is four behind the Whitecaps in ninth place. 

Listen to Saturday’s match beginning with a 7:30 p.m. prematch show on SportsRadio 610.
