The stakes are high and the storylines are thick for Saturday’s
match between the Houston Dynamo and the New York Red Bulls. First, there is Dwayne De Rosario’s return to Houston. Second, this
is a rematch of a tough 1-1 draw at Red Bull Arena back in week three.

But the biggest storyline for Houston is this: The Dynamo have the chance,
with a win and a Philadelphia tie or loss, to move into a tie for first place in the Eastern
Conference with the Red Bulls.

The Houston Dynamo meet the New York Red Bulls for the second time
this season when the Eastern Conference clubs face off Saturday at
Robertson Stadium. The teams played to a 1-1 draw in early April at Red
Bull Arena. The Dynamo stopped a two-game losing slide last time out
with a scoreless draw at Real Salt Lake last weekend. The Red Bulls saw
their unbeaten streak crash to a halt at four games in a 3-2 home loss
to Chivas USA last Sunday.

Zeroes, goose eggs, clean sheets, or shutouts. However you want to term it, the Houston Dynamo defense has one often-elusive objective: keeping the other team off the board.

The importance of the team’s shutout last Saturday against Real Salt Lake is paramount as the Dynamo gear up to face three of MLS’ top attacking teams in the span of eight days.

You can’t score if you don’t try. That’s been the basic message from
Houston Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear to his attacking group all

The message seems to have resonated through the first 10 games
of the season, as the Dynamo are at the top of several individual and
team attacking categories in Major League Soccer. Team of the Week: Week 9

Chivas USA were responsible for arguably the biggest result of the weekend when they defeated the Eastern Conference-leading New York Red Bulls on the road. It's no surprise the Goats feature three representatives in the latest edition of the Team of the Week. That matches the number of FC Dallas players, who had a big week with two shutout victories.

The two goal scorers from the Cascadia rivalry made it into the week's Best XI, while Landon Donovan's scoring streak is also recognized among the elections.

Several years may have passed, but the memories of Dwayne De Rosario in
Houston are still fresh in the minds of many Dynamo fans.

A central figure in Houston’s two MLS Cup championships in 2006 and
2007, the Canadian international gets to return to the place he
helped transform into a soccer city when his new club, the New York Red
Bulls, comes to town Saturday night (7:30 p.m.).

A solid defense will take a team a long way in MLS, and the latest
effort from the Houston Dynamo back line was the type of performance
that might turn a few heads.

In a tight scoreless draw at Real Salt Lake this past Saturday, the
Dynamo reassured everyone, including themselves, that they have the
ability to lock down a championship-caliber attack.
