Houston Dynamo team news and form: Bleak attacking display by Houston

With only 27 goals scored since the start of the season, coach Ben Olsen’s boys really have to kick things up a notch if they want to partake in the next stage of Major League Soccer. We aren’t convinced they have what it takes to crush Real Salt Lake City, so we expect to see a home win on the 5th of July.

Predicted lineup: Clark (GK), Micael, Escobar, Sviatchenko, Dorsey, Artur, Herrera, Aliyu, Bassi, Blessing & Ferreira

Player to watch: Cristian Arango

We feature Cristian Arango as the player to watch in our Real Salt Lake City vs Houston Dynamo prediction, as he scored 16 goals this season. He is leading the Top Goalscorer Award fight in Major League Soccer, and we are sure that with a sturdy display against Olsen’s team, he could make a huge step in the right direction.

Second player to watch: Steve Clark

Shot-stopper Clark is going to be the one under the sticks for Houston Dynamo this week. However, he’d have to do better if he wants to secure more minutes as a starter for coach Olsen.
