Houston Dynamo team news and form: Impressive Houston want more

Everyone who watched Houston’s last game know what coach Ben Olsen’s boys did to San Jose Earthquakes. Sure, the 2-1 win wasn’t that impressive, but what you might want to know is that Houston Dynamo had a shocking 82.0% possession! This rarely happens in soccer, and we are sure that it’s a good omen for our Chicago Fire vs Houston Dynamo predictions.

Player to watch: Xherdan Shaqiri

Xherdan Shaqiri was among the substitutes for coach Frank Klopas in last week’s game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. And, as you might expect, Chicago Fire paid a hefty price by losing 3-0 to Brad Guzan and his colleagues.

Shaqiri wants more first-team soccer

We doubt that a prolific soccer player such as the former Liverpool star is happy with sitting on the bench. Coach Frank Klopas surely knows that and we expect to see the Swiss international among the starters for the visitors.
