Houston Dynamo get rematch opportunity in Vancouver against Whitecaps FC


The Houston Dynamo take to the road this weekend as they face Vancouver Whitecaps FC at BC Place on Saturday at 5 p.m. CT (4:30 p.m. pregame; ROOT SPORTS). The two teams have already met once in 2016, also in Vancouver on March 23.

On that day, the Dynamo got off 17 shots but fell 1-0 on a 23rd minute penalty kick by Pedro Morales. Whitecaps forward Masato Kudo—who earned the penalty—was suspended after the match by the MLS Disciplinary Committee for embellishment on that play.

Vancouver (6-6-2, 20 points) put together a run of three straight wins to start May, but most recently dropped a 4-2 result in Portland to the Timbers. Morales leads the team with six goals and three assists, but midfielder Christian Bolaños (4 goals, 2 assists), forward Blas Perez (2 goals, 1 assist) and defender Kendall Waston will miss the match due to international duty.
