After coming out of their SuperLiga group on top with two wins and a tie, the Houston Dynamo are hoping they can carry some of that momentum into their game this weekend against the Columbus Crew.

Columbus Crew coach Robert Warzycha knows just what it's like to play
three games a week.

Columbus endured a draining 0-0 tie in the heat and humidity at Houston on
July 10 and then used the same lineup for a midweek 1-0 home loss to Kansas
City. Warzycha tweaked the first XI this past Saturday vs. New York, most
notably with the insertion of forward Emilio Renteria, and
the Crew responded with their most complete game of the season in a 2-0
victory.
