Houston Dynamo will welcome Vancouver Whitecaps to BBVA Stadium for a matchday 0 fixture in USA MLS. The last meeting on 21st July 2021 ended in a 0-0 draw. Both sides have met eighteen times in the most recent seasons. Houston Dynamo has won 6 matches, and Vancouver Whitecaps triumphed in 8. Recent outings average 2.61 goals, while both teams score 67% of the time.
Houston Dynamo's latest fixture against Minnesota United ended in an away 2-0 loss. Orange Crush dominated the possession of the ball but didn't take advantage of it.
Vancouver Whitecaps's recent game against FC Dallas ended in a home 1-0 win. Although Caps didn't match their opponent's intensity and quality while on possession, it was still enough. Vancouver Whitecaps put in a decent first-half display and scored in the 20th minute.
Since the start of the season, Houston Dynamo is more dominant at home. They have five wins out of 14 games on home soil. Although Houston Dynamo is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 29% home clean sheets.
Vancouver Whitecaps has picked up 8 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Vancouver Whitecaps wins 0.79 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Vancouver Whitecaps kept a clean sheet in just 14% of their visits.
It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Orange Crush is currently unbeaten at home in three games. Since the start of the season, they have just three home defeats.
Caps failed to win in three consecutive away games. It will be a big surprise to turn up on Thursday and win against Orange Crush.
I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. Houston Dynamo wins on average 1.50 points per home game, compared to 0.79 points per away game for Vancouver Whitecaps. My prediction is Houston Dynamo to win.
Both sides are dangerous going forward. Houston Dynamo has scored in 79% of home games. Vancouver Whitecaps is a decent match and has scored in all away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
