Houston Dynamo FC close a two-game road trip on Saturday when they travel to Allianz Field for the first of three games against Minnesota United this season. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. CT and fans can watch the match live on QuestTexas ch. 55 in English and TeleXitos ch. 47.2 in Spanish.
The Dynamo look to split the two-game road trip after falling 3-2 to Austin FC on Wednesday. Tyler Pasher earned his first start since returning from international duty on July 31. Pasher scored in the 27th minute to bring the Dynamo level at 1-1. Pasher’s goal was his fourth of the season, but the Canadian international left the game minutes later due to a lower leg injury and is listed as questionable for Saturday’s match.
Corey Baird also earned his first start with the team since joining the club on July 30. Fafa Picault scored his third goal of the season and brought Houston within one goal of earning a point against Austin. Picault is the first Dynamo player to score against both in-state rivals in the same season. The Dynamo forward also scored against FC Dallas on May 8 in Frisco.
Houston took the season series in 2020 with a 1-0-2 record against the Loons. The Dynamo won the first meeting 3-0 at BBVA Stadium and the next two games finished as 2-2 draws. Saturday is the first of two road trips to Minnesota this season and the Loons visit BBVA Stadium on Aug. 28.
The Dynamo return to BBVA Stadium on Saturday, Aug. 14 to host the Colorado Rapids at 7:30 p.m. CT.
