Houston Dynamo

25 September 5:45 pm

The Houston Dynamo resume group play in the CONCACAF Champions League on Wednesday with an important home game against Trinidad and Tobago side W Connection at BBVA Compass Stadium.

The Dynamo currently trail Group 1 leaders Árabe Unido of Panama by two points, but have played one fewer game. A win on Wednesday would lift the Dynamo to the top of Group 1 with one game remaining. Houston faced W Connection on Aug. 20 in Trinidad and Tobago and drew 0-0 to open the current Champions League campaign.

Giles Barnes had a pretty good game on Saturday. Leading the charge with the first two goals in a 5-1 rout over Chivas USA earned him a spot on MLSsoccer.com's Team of the Week for Week 30.

This is his second Team of the Week nod, the first coming in Week 25. This also marks the second consecutive week with a Dynamo player in the XI after Ricardo Clark was included last week.

The Dynamo's other two-goal scorer from the weekend, Boniek García, was named an honorable mention.

Barnes also led the league's weekly Castrol Index Top 20 after his performance, collecting 1,683 points. García and Will Bruin, who added a goal and an assist on Saturday, came in at No. 9 and 14, respectively.
