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.
