MLS: Seattle Sounders FC at Houston Dynamo FC Erik Williams-USA TODAY Sports

FULL-TIME: The Sounders to their second straight win, beating the Houston Dynamo 1-0 on Wednesday behind a Raúl Ruidíaz goal and moved to within two points of the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

DYNAMO 0, SOUNDERS 1: Raúl Ruidíaz scored for the second straight game, finishing off a pass from Alex Roldan to give the Sounders a lead in the 28th minute.

LINEUPS: Somewhat surprisingly, Brian Schmetzer has opted for what is effectively a first-choice lineup against the Houston Dynamo. The most notable thing about that is Kelyn Rowe starting alongside Albert Rusnák in the defensive midfield.


A lot has changed with the Houston Dynamo over the past year or so. Ted Segal bought the team and then promptly replaced the general manager and head coach almost as soon as he could. That has fueled some significant turnover in the roster and, more importantly, might even have helped them turn the corner on the field.

The Dynamo aren’t exactly blowing the doors off anyone, but they’re current in playoff position at 4-4-3 and coming off a solid win against Nashville SC in which they overcame a red card to Adam Lundqvist.

That said, the Dynamo will be a little short-handed in this one. The Dynamo’s appeal of Lundqvist’s red card was denied, and they’ll also be without centerback Teenage Hadebe, who will serve a yellow-card suspension.

Notes

  • The Dynamo average just 97.6 passes per game in the attacking third, the second fewest of any team in MLS. They also rank at the bottom of the league standing in terms of touches in the penalty box (16.1) and shots from inside the penalty box (5.73).
  • Darwin Quintero (5) and Sebastian Ferreira (4) have combined for nine of Houston’s 14 goals.
  • Raúl Ruidíaz and Nicolas Lodeiro both scored against Minnesota United. It’s the 11th time the pair has scored in the same game. Only the LAFC pair of Carlos Vela and Diego Rossi (13 times) have scored in the same game more often since Ruidíaz joined the league in 2018.
  • The Sounders are hoping to start their first MLS winning streak since winning four straight last October.
